)-- Forcefield, a leading edge producer of protective sports equipment, has recently announced their patented product, the Forcefield Headband, is now available in eight different colors and can be fully customized with embroidered team logos or school letters. With a wider offering of colors, teams can choose a Forcefield Headband that best corresponds with their uniform or team colors. The Forcefield Headband is one of the first products to infuse the practicality of a headband with safety measures designed to reduce the impact of sports-related head injuries. This patented protective headgear can reduce the impact of external forces to the head by up to 80 percent.
“Offering the Forcefield Headband in a variety of colors opens up the product to a wider group of organized sports teams including pee-wee leagues, youth, club and travel teams…to intermediate school, high school and college,” said John Harkins of Forcefield.
“It’s been scientifically proven that our headbands minimize the impact of force to the head, and we want to make sure that teams from all sports can incorporate the headband as part of their uniform.”
Designed by Dr. C. J. Abraham, P.E., PhD, DEE, FRIC, FTI and Technical Director of Forcefield, the Forcefield Headband meets Dr. Abraham’s desire to make the athletic field a safer place. Originally intended to lessen the force of impacts to soccer players’ heads, the headband quickly transcended the sport of soccer and became a valuable safety asset to athletes of many sports with head injury risks.
Forcefield Headbands are applicable for many sports including soccer, basketball, football, baseball, cheerleading, gymnastics, hockey, lacrosse, tennis, rugby and figure skating.
