Force Impact Technologies

Oak Park


Force Impact Technologies was started by friends Anthony Gonzales and Bob Merriman with the goal of improving the safety of athletes in a meaningful and cost-effective manner. The FIT Guardâ„¢ aims to solve the problem of athletes returning to play, when they have a high probability of having a concussion. The innovative mouthgaurd measures the force and rotational acceleration of an impact, runs them through an algorithm, and illuminates a certain color if a force breaches a set threshold. That color is correlated to the probability the player suffered a concussion based on reasonable and thoughtful concussion proximities derived from clinical research.
