Q-Collar is the world’s first technology to use the body’s natural physiology to protect against mild traumatic brain injury caused by concussive events. A revolutionary approach to protecting the brain, Q-Collar addresses the problem from the inside out by mimicking the natural defense used by woodpeckers. The collar applies slight pressure to the neck to mildly increase blood volume in the brain. This creates a cushion that reduces slosh. Initial research on the collar has shown significant reduction in changes to the brain caused by concussive impacts. Q-Collar is a breakthrough for athletics, the military and industry.
