Integrated Bionics has developed the world's first wearable head impact sensor for girls soccer: the HeadsUp Headband. Girls soccer has the second most numerous concussions in all sports. Today's lack of objective on-field head acceleration measurements results in delays in seeking medical attention.

The cost of not protecting our youths' brains is too high. HeadsUp is defining the next generation of soccer technology by empowering parents, coaches, and players to make informed decisions and control head injury risk exposure in a way that's never been possible before.
