Helping to protect your head and detect concussions as soon as possible.
Akron, Ohio – September 1, 2019 – Henway Technologies recently took on an exciting project with Team Wendy regarding a smart helmet that can measure the amount of impact your head endures and predict the likelihood that you have a concussion and flag the system to acknowledge that you should be checked out by a medical professional.
Team Wendy started out making helmets for skiing, and patented the padding they developed. From here they noticed there could be other uses for this application and they began supplying the department of defense with helmets. Then they began working to develop the previously mentioned smart helmets, and this is where Henway came in. They were debating contracting the work out but it became a no brainer when they came across us and our experience with motion sensors. Based on success in similar projects, experience working with 9-axis IMU sensor networks, and our in-house prototyping capabilities we would be a one-stop-shop for all of their outsourcing needs.
