What is Jolt?
Jolt makes wearable head impact sensors for youth athletes. The sensors communicate in real time with a connected mobile application to identify dangerous impacts. In the event of a dangerous impact, the player, coaches, and parents are notified so that the athlete can be removed from activity for sideline evaluation. An in-app evaluation protocol identifies if the player requires additional medical attention.
