Xenith is a football helmet company, headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. Since 2006, they have been an industry disruptor by pushing the technological envelope.
Why did we choose to work with Xenith? Their helmets are different than any other helmet on the market. Their free floating shell and bonnet system decelerates the head, and they are the only company that could answer that question. To date, Helmets to Heal has donated 150 Xenith football helmets to kids aging from 8 to 18, and haven't recorded a concussion yet. https://www.xenith.com/pages/xenith-technology
The King–Devick (K–D) test is a 2-min, sideline assessment of rapid number naming which requires the athletes to quickly read a series of numbers on three test cards given on a 9.4 inch tablet. The K–D test requires eye movements, language function and attention in order to perform functions which have been shown to reflect suboptimal brain function in concussion. The K–D test has been studied as an acute sideline concussion screening tool in several cohorts throughout a variety of contact sports including boxers and mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters, collegiate athletes in contact sports, amateur rugby players, elite professional hockey players and high school level football and hockey. In these cohorts, worsening of performance on the K–D test from baseline was shown to be an accurate indicator of concussion. The addition of this type of vision based test has also been shown to enhance the detection of athletes with concussion.

Our Story (cont.)
(cont.) Much like with every team, I knew this could work if we united as one football family. So one month later, through community donations and extensive research, Helmets to Heal purchased 11 Xenith Epic football helmets (2015-2016 NFL Health and Safety Helmet of the Year). The helmets were donated to Racine Horlick High School in Racine, WI.
Now, almost one later, we have we have raised over $35,000.00, donated 150 Xenith helmets and 250 King-Devick cconcussion tests. Our #1 goal is to provide youth sports programs with all the knowledge and technology available to prevent a players' first concussion from ever happening. #sackingconcussions
