Smithsonian Institution Examines the Evolution of Football Helmet Tech

The Smithsonian's Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation has released a video examining the history and technology of the football helmet. IMPACT: The Evolution of Football Helmets is part of the center’s multi-year Invention, Sport and Technology initiative, and is one of many educational efforts that it intends to produce for the public as it builds towards the opening of an invention, sport and technology exhibit at the National Museum of American History in 2022.

Our CEO Shawn Springs is on camera discussing the state of the industry and the role Windpact is playing in equipment innovation. We are truly honored to be included in this feature and thoroughly enjoyed working with the teams from the Smithsonian and SportTechie.

I recently sat down with LinkedIn Editor Joseph Milord for a conversation about the journey I'm on, transitioning from the NFL to CEO of Windpact. It isn't always easy but I believe in the work we're doing to improve impact protection for so many. It drives me every day to be better, do better and to push through the tough times. I'm appreciative of all the support and guidance along the way.

We are in awe of the inspirational work by Jose Fernandez & Ironhead Studio. Shawn Springs so admired their work that when he started building the team, one of the first people he approached to join us on our journey was Jose. We are grateful to have him as part of our Windpact team!

Here's a football helmet Jose designed for a company called Windpact. @windpact has developed a cutting-edge safety system to minimize sports related head trauma. This technology will be integrated into many different types of helmets. As the lead production designer at Windpact, Jose is responsible for the aesthetic design of some of these helmets. He works closely with former NFL cornerback and CEO, Shawn Springs. #windpact #football #helmet #safety #design #footballhelmet #nfl #ncaa #collegefootball #productdesign #specialfx #spfx #conceptdesign #ncaa #sports #sculpture #digitalsculpting #aesthetic #shawnsprings #washingtonredskins #newenglandpatriots #ohiostate #josefernandez #ironheadstudio

Helmet inequality: Protecting women playing lacrosse

Check out this story on our partner Hummingbird Sports & the fantastic work they are doing to make helmets standard equipment in women's lacrosse. Windpact & Shawn Springs discuss how our technology is improving the overall performance of this trailblazing helmet. #lacrosse #helmets #concussions #girlslacrosse

September 9, 2018: When the team at Hummingbird Sports saw a need for a women’s lacrosse helmet, they had no idea they were trailblazers. As the first to market specialized headgear for women, they suddenly found themselves in the crosshairs of a heated debate about the future of the sport.

Shawn Springs Hopes to Make Football Safer With Windpact

How does Windpact's technology help keep athletes safe?

“We like to say we pride ourselves in understanding the impact,” Springs explained. “What’s so unique and different about our technology is it’s all an energy managing system. Simplest way to understand it is if you jump off the side of a building and you land on a mattress, that’s the absorption technology. That’s what you see in most helmets … whether it’s an EPS [expanded polystyrene] or some type of foam. Then if you land on an air bag, that’s dispersal technology. Our technology is the only tech out on the market that’s probably a combination of both.”
