Renewed Effort on Free Sensor Program (as our social responsibility to improve sports safety)
Jun 20, 2020 -- We started the Free Sensor Program on Feb 12, 2018, for which we will donate 1 sensor per month to an individual or 5 sensors per month to a football team. Over the past 2 years, we have donated more than 30 concussion sensors.
For upcoming 2020-2021 football season, we will continue our effort, and we encourage all teens and parents to consider how technology can be used to provide a safer environment for sports.
August 30, 2019 -- 2019 football season started, and we started our Concussion Education Month to promote player safety, Pop Warner Concussion Policy, and online training for players, coaches, and parents. Every week, we visit San Jose local youth football teams as Community Spokesperson to speak to players and parents about concussion awareness and sports safety.
“We think sports like football, cheer and dance offer so much to young person, from a fun, physically active lifestyle and a sense of teamwork to valuable life lessons like perseverance and sacrifice. To make it possible for them to enjoy those experiences we will never stop working to try and make football, cheerleading and dance safer.” -- Pop Warner Little Scholars

3rd Patent Filed
Aug 2022 -- We filed our 3rd US Patent, "DEEP LEARNING SENSING SYSTEM FOR CONCUSSION PREVENTION". The idea behind this patent is to use deep learning to predict the probability of concussion for the next play using descriptive data in addition to physical measurement data, so that coaches and players can decide whether to run certain play under certain scenarios to reduce the risk of concussion.
Patent application number: 63394867
2nd Patent Approved
Sep 2020; Updated June 2021 -- Our 2nd US Patent, "COLLABORATIVE CONCUSSION SENSING SYSTEM FOR BETTER CONCUSSION PREDICTION", is approved. The idea behind this patent is to use collaborative machine-learning to improve the accuracy of g-force measurement in sensors by using the law of physics.
