New Style Football Helmets Make It A Safer Sport

The new smart helmets used in collegiate and professional football games are adding safety to the game. The new multi-cushion design was tested in military helmets to enable military personnel to survive extreme impact. The many air channels provide extra cooling. The face guards are mounted with the idea to give the wearer a wider view. The communication system mounted in the helmet is also equipped with a temperature sensor. The sidelines monitor the players temperature to prevent heat stroke. The communication system enables the players to hear the coach which has access to the skybox , other coaches, offense and defense players. With the increase of head injuries in this very physically abusive sport, a smart move was made for smart helmets. The $300 price without the communication system makes them out of reach for the High School and local recreational players.
