Clockwork Technology Innovations, LLC (http://www.ctiinventions.com/) announces an important contribution to the effort to reduce the severity of head injuries and, ideally, help prevent them. The company has developed new technology (HTx10) that augments and improves the design of helmets used by athletes and military personnel. This innovative and unique shock avoidance technology is available today; CTI anticipates this same technology soon being adapted for automobile airbags.
CTI’s new technology is in fact a set of 10 inter-related innovations that work independently or in any combination to reduce the forces of heavy impacts. Of particular concern is the rotational concussion, which involves a twisting of the head and neck – it’s these types of injures that spurred the National Football League to ban deliberate helmet-to-helmet contact.
In addition to being potentially lifesaving, this technology is both practical and economical. It can readily be incorporated into existing helmet designs. The technology does not interfere with sights, hearing or maneuverability – an important consideration on the playing field as well as the battle field.
The significant reduction of concussions and other brain injuries is just one of many ways that CTI intends to fulfill its mission of improving human health and safety around the world. The company is continuing to forge a strong, international organization of dedicated researchers, marketers and business professionals who believe in this mission.
“Our goal is to be a positive and disruptive force across several industries,” says CTI’s Director of Product Development Leonard Lasko. The intellectual property we’re introducing is ready for development now.
Having earned his credentials as an innovative thinker during a 17-year academic career, Lasko is the straw that stirs the drink at CTI. His list of accomplishments includes hundreds of actual, buildable inventions all designed to make life better. However, Lasko is just one member of a diverse team of experts – a team breaking ground today on some truly revolutionary ideas for tomorrow. Other members of this forward-looking team include “The Sports Doctor” Dr. Robert A. Weil, a sports podiatrist and Internet radio host; Paul Rode, retired CEO of Motorola, Rich Mattas, retired nuclear engineer from Argonne National Laboratory and John Harmata, award-winning author and leading authority on figure skating equipment related injuries.
While some of CTI’s forthcoming products may seem like science fiction, Lasko assures everyone that they’re based fully in reality. The company is simply taking proven concepts and advancing them to their next logical step, all as part of creating future-ready technologies that can be manufactured right now. Among the first wave of patentable inventions from CTI will be medical and surgical devices, shock avoidance technology, industrial tools and hardware and cosmetology products.
