U HITIQ Charging Case

Implementing a HITIQ Nexus system will:

  • Provide objective head impact data
  • Improve quality of care provided to your athletes
  • Create a longitudinal head impact profile for each athlete
  • Provide additional metrics used to optimise performance
  • Improve decision-making for medical staff

The process

Athlete wears a custom-fit, custom-calibrated Nexus A9 impact sensor.

Athlete experiences a head impact, and the Nexus A9 sensor registers the data.

Independently validated machine learning algorithms classify the data as a true impact event.

All data collected from athletes syncs to their Nexus portal; a secure cloud storage for easy access.

Administrations, doctors, and teams assess the data, which enables strategy based on patterns and trends.


Crusaders and HITIQ

“Using the Nexus portal, it's easy to see impact loads and therefore what members of the squad need in terms of training or rest. We can relay these messages to the performance team after a game and create a plan for athletes to implement.”
