Tozuda Indicators react instantaneously to forces from any direction. Our Indicators withstand regular helmet use and minor impacts, but can indicate when a hit is potentially damaging.
Direct and indirect impacts to the body can trigger the Indicator to activate, meaning the indicator can also react to dangerous hits to the body. Once activated, Tozuda Head Impact Indicators turn bright red, alerting the user or bystanders to a potential head injury.
Tozuda Head Impact Indicators react to the acceleration of an impact, and indicate when a user should be evaluated by a medical professional before returning to their activity.
Blows to the head a contact sports player may receive in a typical season. In an IRB approved study that Tozuda conducted, our indicators withstood over 12,000 impacts during gameplay & practice.
Players on a nationally-ranked high school football team equipped with Tozuda indicators. Over the course of the entire season, 4 activations occurred, 3 of which led to diagnosed concussions.
Our team knows first hand that head injuries can be devastating. We also know it's human nature to want to push through an injury you can't see.
Ignoring a head injury and complicating the recovery process can impact the longevity of any career. That's why we made it simple: If it's red, check your head.
Our curiosity, design, and engineering skills are what drive our team, and we're determined to keep creating products to make safety simple and accessible for everyone.
Bold people make bold decisions. Jessie Garcia went from a collegiate rugby player, frustrated by her head injury, to the CEO and Founder of Tozuda - designing, manufacturing and selling head impact sensors for concussion awareness.
