The FIT Guard™ aims to solve the problem of athletes returning to play, when they have a high probability of having a concussion. In order to do this, better detection of concussion probabilities is needed.
Our mouthguard will visually display the force of an impact. Through the use of high-luminosity LEDs, a Gyroscope, an Accelerometer, a complex user-specific algorithm, and a microcontoller, our product illuminates a certain color, if a force breaches a set threshold. That color is correlated to the probability the player suffered a concussion based on reasonable and thoughtful concussion proximities derived from clinical research. Our goal is to minimize inherent risk associated with players remaining on the field after suffering an undetected concussion. We hope to minimize the long term health risks associated with repetitive blows to a concussed brain
