Fast track: protecting sports participants from head injuries
published in Issue 46, 3rd quarter 2013
Head protection represents a significant segment of the market for sports gear. In most contact sports, head protection is either mandatory or at least preferred. In recent years, a debate has raged over whether or not helmets could do more. Specifically, the question is whether helmets could do anything to mitigate the effects of concussion -- a frequent occurrence in contact sports which can have short- and long-term consequences for brain health. The report highlights some of the interesting product innovations in the market, including: Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) by MIPS AB; Phillips Head Protection System (PHPS) by Phillips Helmets; SuperSkin, Pure Carbon and Pure Glass by Lazer; CheckLight by Reebok and MC10; and AdiPower by Adidas and Ayrtek.
Four times a year, Performance Apparel Markets provides intelligence, expert analysis and insight on the performance apparel industry.
Performance apparel represents one of the fastest growing markets in the global textile and clothing industry--and market growth is being fuelled by an emergence of new fibres, fabrics and innovative materials. The market's growth prospects are also being spurred by increasing demand for performance properties in mainstream fashion.
