CAP Corporation has Partnered with Auckland University of Technology to Conduct Concussion Research

The Research will Analyze CAP Data from the Kinematic Response to Impulsive Loading

Calgary, Alberta and Auckland, New Zealand - October 3rd, 2017 - CAP (Concussion Active Prevention) Corporation expands their research and partners with Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand (AUT). AUT is a five-star University ranked in the top 30 in the world for Sports Science.

In sports medicine there is a gap in quantifying the levels of strength to be protective against concussions. The CAP technology gathers head movements in response to a low amplitude force and demonstrates the capability of the athlete to resist concussions when exposed to higher forces. The research project will analyze the data gathered from over 1000 male and female athletes. Until now there has never been a technology available to test the correlation between strength and angular head acceleration on a live subject...

CAP Corporation has a Provisional Patent for a Ground-breaking Machine to Reduce the Risks of Concussions

Research is Being Conducted with U of A to Test Neck Strength using the CAP RAM

Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta - June 27th, 2017 - CAP (Concussion Active Prevention) Corporation began as a partnership to develop online courses teaching a neck strengthening and structural balance program to reduce the risk of concussions. This led to designing a machine to measure the biomechanics that occur prior to traumatic brain injuries. The data collected was used to develop strength training protocols to transform an athlete's body into protective armour to prevent concussions. Thus, the CAP Program was launched and they are now conducting research with Dr. Hossein Rouhani at the University of Alberta to demonstrate the CAP Program's efficiency in reducing the risk of concussion. ...
