N-Pro is described as a - patent pending - non-invasive device, comprised of viscoelastic materials, intended to be used to protect the skull from non-penetrating direct impacts in rugby and for the medical purpose of preventing or alleviating head trauma, specifically mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).
The device provides impact protection for rugby players (at all playing levels) to the occipital, parietal, temporal, frontal, mastoid and sphenoid regions of the skull by dissipating the impact energy at the localised site of impact (coup), minimising the brain’s movement and deformation, thus reducing the incidence of tissue damage at both the coup and contre - coup sites.
Indications for use
It is intended that this device will be used when a player is engaged in rugby training and/or match scenarios for the duration of play.
