Vytal

Abstract

In the US alone, there are 3.8 million concussions per year. Concussions have been shown to have an impact on mental and physical health years after they occur. And worst of all, most concussions go undetected which means that the injury doesn't get treated and can get much worse.

Vytal addresses this problem by providing a team tracking platform that can notify a coach or trainer when a concussion might have occurred so further treatment can be found. We have pioneered a new way to do this too so instead of a head band, Vytal's form factor is an adhesive patch that is placed on the athlete's chest.

Vytal takes this a step further in order to provide more value. In addition to concussion detection, Vytal is a complete team tracking platform that provides coaches and trainers with biometric information like heart rate and heart rate variability. This biometric information helps these coaches and trainers make informed decision and optimize training to its maximum potential while providing the injury protection and detection.
