Playing sports such as soccer can be fun. But athletes should also make sure they keep track of their health and keep an eye on head acceleration measurements to catch issues before they become something major. HeadsUp happens to be a head impact acceleration sensor that helps you better monitor your health and head injuries during soccer games. It is small and lightweight.
Here is how the device works:
HeadsUp incorporates miniature accelerometers which measure in real time the accelerations experienced by the wearer’s head. A sophisticated algorithm computes the severity of a head acceleration using a proprietary method similar to the Head Injury Criterion (HIC). The HIC level is indicated through an LED
HeadsUp is designed for women’s soccer, but it can be used for other activities. You still need to talk to your medical professional for your injuries, but this device helps you stay safe while playing soccer.
