YOUR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE AFTER A CONCUSSION
Head-neck cooling technology before and/or after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) in contact sports may represent a sensible, practical, and effective method to potentially enhance recovery and minimize post-injury deficits.
After motor vehicle accidents, sports are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injuries among kids.
Kids aged 16-19 sustain almost 30% of ALL sports- related concussions recorded every year across every sport and age demographic.
for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI)
High school football players are 3 times more likely to suffer a catstrophic injury than college athletes.
"Furthermore, although systemic hypothermia remains a potentially valid treatment strategy for moderate to severe TBIs, it is neither practical nor safe for mTBIs. Therefore, selective head-neck cooling may represent an ideal strategy to provide therapeutic benefits to the brain. Optimizing brain temperature management using a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) spacesuit spinoff head-neck cooling technology before and/or after mTBI in contact sports may represent a sensible, practical, and effective method to potentially enhance recover and minimize post-injury deficits. In this paper, we discuss and summarize the anatomical, physiological, preclinical, and clinical data concerning NASA spinoff head-neck cooling technology as a potential treatment for mTBIs, particularly in the context of contact sports."
“As a former engineer in the medical device space, I can attest to the design and comfort of the ZDC™. It is well made, durable, and comfortable for field conditions, whatever they may be. My wife also likes using it when she feels a migraine coming on – and it works!”
MEDICAL DEVICE ENGINEER
Female basketball athletes suffer 240% more concussions than male athletes.
Of those who suffer concussions, 50% develop Post-Concussion Syndrome.
