ZAM Helmets Inc. is a startup creating better hockey helmets to reduce concussions among youth players. The ZAM clinic team is building an Internet of Things impact-monitoring system for use in these helmets. The system consists of an in-helmet impact sensor array, an iPhone app for displaying data about potential concussion risk, and cloud data storage for future analysis to aid concussion research.
