The Reebok checklight color codes the intensity of a punch, tackle, fall

The checklight was developed by Reebok and MC10 to help monitor head impacts, from light blows to more intense impacts. Easy-to-read colored LEDs provide instant feedback for coaches, athletic coaches, parents, and athletes, with the checklight staying green to show it’s on and working, a yellow light showing a ‘moderate impact’ and a red light indicating a ‘more severe impact’ (aka, get off the sports field!).

Advanced algorithms ‘continuously process sensored data’ and while the checklight won’t diagnose any injury, it’s an innovative way to keep sports-minded people safe while boxing, tackling, skating – whatever the sport.
