Young boys and girls learning to curl and playing in the Little Rocks Division need head protection on the ice. It's not always possible to make them keep on a helmet, so coaches are making the Ice Halo mandatory.
The Ice Halo comes in three sizes, including small, for children. It has been tested and proven to reduce impact force by over 250G. http://www.icehalo.com
"The kids love to curl - there's just something about sliding on the ice with big heavy stones! But they also have a very carefree attitude and this can lead to some pretty nasty falls. We can't risk these kids heads any longer. Most of the boys toss their helmets as soon as they get on the ice and generally, at least one of them falls over the course of the game. It's just not worth the risk any more, not when there is a product like the Ice Halo available."
Serious concussion ranks as a number one injury during curling games. The curlers feet slip out from under them so fast there is no way to stop from falling down very hard. Unfortunately, the slip continues past just a had landing on the behind, and generally stops with a solid crack of the head impacting on the ice.
The violent jarring of the head impacting on the ice causes concussion. Concussions can lead to serious complications at the outset - blurred vision, nausea, dizziness, headaches to name a few. These symptoms can continue for a very long time, or they may even be signs of hemoraging, clots, or even stroke.
The Ice Halo fits snugly around the head providing protection for the entire skull, against head trauma due to falls on the ice. It can be easily slipped on and off between games, it's light, comfortable and it comes in a wide variety of colours making it appealing to all age groups.
As they're saying goes ... The Ice Halo - the Best Thing to Hit the Ice - Before You Do!
