Designed for Safety. Tested beyond standards.

Wavecel has been rigorously tested by universities and research labs in the U.S. and abroad.

NIH Funded

The development and testing of WaveCel technology was funded in part by the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH).* *NS07473

Virginia Tech

WaveCel earned the highest rating (five stars) from Virginia Tech University’s helmet testing facility.

Our Research

We conduct research to discover how to best prevent and treat injuries. Our journey into concussion research started almost 20 years ago. After understanding how vulnerable the brain is toward rotational forces, we embarked on re-inventing helmets that best absorb rotational forces during impact. The result of this 20 year effort is the development of WaveCel technology to provide exceptional protection from rotational forces and concussion. Our journey will continue as long as there is the chance to prevent even more brain injuries.

Our Testing

We believe in the scientific method. Technological advancements require creative ideas, rigorous testing, and a relentless pursuit of the best solution. WaveCel is born from over 20 years of pursuing this philosophy. We will not stop chasing safest. *Test collaboration at Helmet Impact Testing Facility of Legacy Health.

The Results

Measuring Wavecel Performance

Rotational Acceleration

Rotational acceleration is the rapid spin of the head caused by an impact. Higher rotational accelerations carry a greater risk of causing brain injury. *See Accident Analysis and Prevention 124 (2019)

Up to 73% more absorption of rotational force than a standard helmet.*

Concussion Risk

The risk of sustaining a concussion was predicted based on the amount of rotational acceleration recorded during impact. *See Accident Analysis and Prevention 124 (2019)

Up to 98% less concussion risk than the standard helmet.*

“When I discovered Wavecel I was immediately impressed with their rigorous research methods and pedigree.”
