How It Works
An Added Layer of Protection
According to research, in a single season of play, athletes who were not wearing a Q-Collar were 3x more likely to have significant changes in their brain tissue.
of athletes not wearing a Q-Collar showed significant changes in brain tissue after a season of play versus 27% of those who were wearing a Q-Collar.
Repetitive Sub-Concussive Impacts
Repeated impacts caused by headers, jostling, and collisions may alter the deep tissue of the brain. Damage from these smaller events, called repetitive sub-concussive impacts, accumulates over time. This poses long-term health risks including decreased mental acuity, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), dementia, and Alzheimer’s.

Q-Collar in Play
“The Q-Collar makes me feel like I have an advantage on the field, like I have an upper hand. It makes me feel like I have an extra layer of defense that most guys don’t have and mentally it makes me feel like I’m safer and have more protection on the field.”
“I have taken a lot of repetitive hits. Unfortunately, it naturally just builds up over time. To have something that combats that is really key. The Q-Collar is just an absolute game changer. I have confidence in the fact that me wearing the Q-Collar will protect me and more importantly, will help protect my brain.”
“If there is one thing I could say to youth athletes is that I wish I had this opportunity to wear the Q-Collar when I was your age. I’ve done a lot of headers and had a lot of elbows to the head. I wasn’t protected…I think that the Q-Collar is a game changer for youth sports.”

“I think wearing a Q-Collar is a no brainer for me. As I said, when I get out into the field, if I forget to wear a collar, I can sense it immediately because I just feel like something’s missing. I feel naked almost. I feel somewhat exposed.”

“Wearing the Q-Collar is really easy. Once I get playing, I don’t even really notice it’s on. It’s something that is like an invisible shield almost that I put on. Similar to my goggles and mouthguard, once you’re playing, you never notice it.”
