About CAP Corporation
CAP (Concussion Active Prevention) Corporation is a science driven social enterprise that has developed a disruptive technology offering not only a new and complementary approach to concussion prevention in sports, but an important one. CAP’s novel and patented innovation offers the sports world the feasibility to dramatically reduce the severity of concussions before they occur by changing the athlete; beyond the technical advances currently implemented in sport.
The RAM Test and CAP technology is the only platform of its kind in the world; one that measures neck function relative to sport-specific performance to assess concussion risk, and mitigate that risk with scientifically designed, sport specific exercises, independently tailored for the specific nuances of the athlete, and on a case-by-case basis regardless of gender, age, sport, or physical morphology. We have developed a scientifically validated safety standard we believe all athletes in high risk sports should meet to lower the risk and mitigate concussions before they occur.
