G8RSkin™ reduces peak linear acceleration of an athlete's head by up to 87g

G8RSkinTM testing has been shown to significantly reduce peak acceleration of an athlete’s head during the moment of impact. The acceleration of the brain during these collisions is linked to concussions. G8RSkinTM significantly reduces these peak acceleration values.

The following examples of what 87-89g does to the human head*

“There is a need to not only raise awareness of the sequelae of concussions (hormonal shifts included), but to start by reducing concussions themselves. There is great value in pairing a strong evidence-based approach with addressing unmet needs of athletes.”

“As a dedicated team doctor, entrusted with the health and safety of athletes, I am excited to recommend G8RSkin™. I have concluded that G8RSkin’s proprietary solution represents a significant advancement in the ongoing effort to minimize the risk of concussions in sports and so am pleased to serve on the Medical Advisory Committee for G8RTech. Tested at the Virginia Tech Helmet Lab, G8RSkin’s integrated head, neck and shoulder approach combined with energy absorbent materials effectively redistributes energy from violent impacts while minimizing the rotational forces on the head that contribute to concussions. With years of experience addressing concussions and their impact on players, I understand the critical need for innovative solutions that prioritize athlete well-being. From a medical perspective, the G8RSkin aligns perfectly with our goal of promoting athletes’ health and career longevity. Recommending the G8RSkin is a proactive step in safeguarding athletes from potential long-term consequences of head injuries.”
