Rotection®

Technology that reduces rotational forces to the brain

In sport, the brain is subjected to sudden acceleration and deceleration through head-to-head, head-to-ball, head-to-ground contacts and impacts. Rotational forces are created 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 and increases the risk of diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and long-term neurodegenerative diseases including Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).

To reduce rotational brain injury across all sport, teams, players and positions, there is a need to reduce rotational forces to the brain from concussive and sub-concussive impacts.

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

Rotection definition

Science

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