Industry: Health, Fitness, Wellness


Force Impact Technologies has created an impact detection and analysis platform. It all starts with our smart mouthguard, the FITGuard, which measures the force of an impact and illuminates color-coded LEDs to provide an instant, visual, indication on the amount of force measured. From there, data is sent to our FITApp where parents and coaches can review a log of impacts over the course of a game, week, or even full season. Finally, data is sent to our cloud database for analysis.
