If you want to stay up to date, one must stay on top of football news. Times are constantly changing, and if you don’t stay on top of the news, you will get left behind. This line of thinking goes for every industry. We live in a world that is constantly changing and updating with the times, and the rate of this seems to be getting faster. As football equipment manufacturers we care about the growth of the game and the safety of all players involved. In our industry, football equipment manufacturers have to keep up with the latest news and trends. Otherwise, you could miss out on essential opportunities that may never come back around! At Kerr Sports, we understand the importance of staying up to date. We are continuously improving our abilities by staying on top of the news and by staying informed. This is how we came up with the concept for the Kerr Football Neck Collar. We know and understand the risks that are associated with playing football. While football is a fun and exciting sport, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with its fair share of consequences. Unfortunately, playing football is one of the leading sports for player injury risks. The high amount of injuries is mainly due to the speed and constant collisions that happen out on the field. Due to the momentum, players hit each other every play with tremendous force. We want to keep our competitive edge in the sports equipment injury, so with constant research and testing we came out with a product that can help players remain safe on the field. The Kerr Football Neck Collar does just that, as it’s been proven to help make football players safer. Our Football Neck Collar has been shown to reduce, on average, up to 58% of force transmission to the neck. Also, it can also contribute to reducing head and neck movement during a collision by up to 38%.
