Reebok Checklight

While head injuries have always been of the utmost concern in sports, the issue has been garnering a lot more attention as of late. The Reebok Checklight was created by the athletic apparel company to help measure impact to athlete’s heads in real time.

Unfortunately impacts to the head are a part of the sports we love, and diagnosing head injuries can be quite difficult. The Checklight utilizes advanced algorithms alongside an accelerometer, gyroscope and microprocessor to provide real time impact information for coaches, medics, athletic trainers, and of course concerned parents (not to mention the athletes themselves). A green light indicates everything is working, yellow indicates moderate impact, and red means it’s time to get pulled out of the game. The Checklight comes attached to an included skull cap, so athletes can wear the device with or without a helmet. Check out the video below.
