Guardian Athletics’ Kato Collar provides better protection to the head and neck of athletes by slowing their movement after impact by up to 30% and allowing football players a lightweight, discreet design that doesn’t get in the way of a safer way to play football.

The Kato Collar’s unique patented design:
• Has shown through independent biomechanical testing to decelerate the head after impact by up to 30% and reduces the forces known to cause a concussion. We do this by absorbing the energy elicited to the brain caused by movement of the head.
• Slows down the head and neck, too, which prevents excruciatingly painful burners and stingers from occurring.
• Does not inhibit the player’s motion in any way, allowing for full active range of motion.
