Rotection®

Technology that reduces rotational forces to the brain

Rotection® is specifically designed technology to reduce the transmission of rotational forces to the brain.

In sport the brain is subjected by sudden acceleration and deceleration, being rotated from the side through e.g. a head to head, head to ball, head to ground contacts and impacts, where rotational mechanical forces are created and that twist and shear the brain cells. This creates immediate damage to the cell structure (rotational shearing) and delayed consequences, e.g. blood flow changes, neural inflammation and node damage.

Nature did not design the brain for rotational injury, with the brain being badly designed for sudden rotational acceleration and deceleration. Rotational brain injury causes concussion, increases the risk of diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and to long-term neurodegenerative diseases including Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).

This means to reduce rotational brain injury across all contact sports, teams, players and positions there is a need to reduce rotational forces to the brain.

Rotection definition

Science

Repeated rotational forces twist and shear the brain cells, causing significant damage to the brain.

The Science

Technology

Designed to minimise the transmission of rotational forces to the brain, reducing the risk of concussion and effects of cumulative traumas to the brain.

Technology

Testing

The most efficient sports equipment of its type, by the recognised international standard methods of laboratory testing.
