Dr. Steven D. Novicky is pleased to announce the issuance of US Patent No. 8,707,470 which covers the company’s Shockstrip® specialized exterior helmet pads.
The invention of the Shockstrip® concept dates back to 2010 and was created in response to the alarming number of young athletes he treated each football season at his chiropractic offices for problems associated with helmet-to-helmet impact. As a result of his extensive research and testing, the device Novicky developed has the potential to help protect youth from the looming problems often caused from participation in full contact sports.
“I’m both excited and proud,” said Dr. Steven Novicky, inventor of the Shockstrip®. "This is a key patent for the company that not only establishes Shockstrip® exterior helmet pads as the industry standard, but also establishes Shockstrip, Inc. as a leader in external helmet devices."
