Canadian tech start-up launches compression shirt to prevent whiplash

HALO is a compression shirt that protects the wearer from injury and whiplash in contact sports
Canadian tech company AEXOS (Advanced Exoskeletal Systems) has developed an innovative compression shirt that is designed to reduce the risk of injury in contact sports.

The company, which was founded in 2015 by brothers Charles and Rob Corrigan, specialises in the design of 'biomechanically assistive technology' that allows wearers to challenge their physical limits whilst reducing the risk of injury.

The shirt, called Halo, supports the movement of the cervical spine, reducing stress and fatigue on the head and neck, and offers neck and postural support.

It features innovative technology that enables the collar of the shirt to stiffen during a whiplash event, therefore improving neck stability and reducing causal factors of whiplash injury and concussion.

The company worked with design-firm Tactix, ballistics testing facility Biokinetics and researchers at the University of Waterloo on Halo.

"We've spent the last three years developing lightweight high-performance protection for athletes that is unlike anything else available today," said CEO Charles Corrigan.

"The result is a whole new approach to protecting athletes in a way that wasn't possible a few years ago," Corrigan adds.
