People Behind the Smart Helmet™
Success on the Way
We are looking for investors for our Smart Helmet™
Concussion Mitigation Technologies, LLC, was founded in 2011 and is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The company was founded on the premise that higher technology is readily available to protect the brain in endeavors such as athletics and the military. The cornerstone of our company is U.S. Patent 8,127,373. Our patent and developing technology integrates a microcomputer within a helmet.
Accompanying this microcomputer is software and databases that are used to control miniature air bags within the protective helmet. These air bags will fire off in correspondence to the predictive movement of the brain. This intelligent response, a SMART HELMET™, will allow for more precise dampening and dispersion of forces, and reduce the concussive effects on the brain.
How everything began..
In 2009 Mr. Fodemski witnessed an on field concussion in a football game and wondered if there could be higher technology placed within the helmet to reduce concussions. It started with a sketch, then another, and another, which lead to a patent application and eventual patent award. Along the way he built some early prototypes, and electronically bread boarded and assembled various helmet configurations in his garage. This has led to five more patents pending in protective helmet technology. It is his belief -and that of the company- that off the shelf technology is available today to integrate within the helmet – and more can be done now to protect our youth and U.S. Military.
