Concussion and head injuries are a major problem in high impact sports.
MARC Sports is an Irish based, sports technology company that develop innovative head protectors that enhance players’ performance and maximise their safety.
They are developing a next generation rugby scrum cap, working closely with the IRFU, and Rugby’s World governing body, the IRB.
This next generation scrum cap specifically focuses on reducing the incidence of concussion in rugby players. During the 2011/12 Aviva Rugby Premiership in England, Concussion was the most prominent match injury.
