NFL Testing Guidelines. . .is this really working?

NFL Testing Guidelines. . .is this really working?

The NFL has stated that they have had a significant increase in concussions.  The NFL has homologated new testing guidelines to curtail the injuries, but is this really working?

Nine out of 42 NFL players reported concussions in the last two months of the season.  They were all wearing the two highest rated helmets listed in the “Top-Performing Group” on the 2018 NFL/NFLPA Helmet Laboratory Testing Performance poster that was recently released.

SG opposes the NFL Testing Guidelines.  While the NFL concussion rates continue to rise, SG’s concussion rate has declined.  SG’s concussion rate is .0079% in over 5 years of manufacturing with 10,620 helmets on the playing field with 84 reported concussions from 2013-2017.


I understand that no helmet, practice apparatus, or helmet pad can completely prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports. Researchers have not reached an agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions. No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact absorption tests.  By entering this site, you acknowledge this statement.
