The NFL Helmet Challenge aims to stimulate the development by experts, innovators and helmet manufacturers of a new helmet for NFL players that outperforms, based on laboratory testing, all helmets currently worn by NFL players.
It is the next phase in the NFL’s Engineering Roadmap, which seeks to improve the understanding of football biomechanics and create incentives for small businesses, entrepreneurs, innovators and helmet manufacturers to develop new protective equipment.
The process kicked off with a Symposium in Youngstown November 13-15, where updates were given on the current science around helmet safety as well as insights into how to participate in the challenge.
If you have innovations in this important field or know someone who does, spread the word about this great opportunity to work on game-changing NFL technology.
