Why our headguards?

Excellent performance and full head coverage

Hedkayse Headguards contain Enkayse® which offers excellent, repeatable performance at body temperature.

The unique design has 3 large pieces of Enkayse® foam covering the whole head meaning no lacing or weakspots.

Innovation & science

Our revolutionary material Enkayse®

After 4 years and 6,000 tests and iterations, we formulated our revolutionary Enkayse® material.

Scientifically and independently proven to offer an unparalleled level of performance no matter how many impacts it receives.

Enkayse® has a unique ability to load spread. Specifically this material has optimal performance at body temperature.

The importance of protection

The issue - ‘concussions & sub-concussions’ and total lifetime head injury debt

The cumulative number of total concussive and sub-concussive injuries sustained by an individual - think ‘compound interest’.

Minimising total lifetime debt is the cornerstone of potential CTE mitigation. Anything that can be done to lower head impacts to a level below sub-concussive threshold is to be applauded.

design and testing

Developed with the best

Independent research and testing has been carried out with both The British College of Osteopathic Medicine and Imperial College London.

We developed the product with an independent and unpaid 'design council' made up from former & current players, coaches, referees, doctors & surgeons, designers and engineers.

No headguard can claim to prevent all concussions

"If in doubt, sit them out"

Hedkayse headguard is not THE solution to head impact concerns. It is, however, PART of the solution...along with education, awareness, tackle technique, neck strength and recovery protocols.

Our aim is to mitigate against multiple subconcussive impacts.

Reducing impacts to below 90g mitigates the potential of brain injuries.

“Whilst Hedkayse’s new material will not prevent all head injuries or stop all concussions occurring, it is a huge step forward in mitigation of risk for those participating in contact sports and is to be applauded.”
