During a recent practice, we were talking with some of the other parents and we missed a hit that he took. His shockbox sent an alert, otherwise, even though we know what to look for, we may not have put all of the pieces together later on. Since we didn't see the hit we probably wouldn't have asked him how he felt, and since he only had a brief mild headache after practice, he may not have mentioned it to us. Later that evening, he asked us to turn the lights off, without the alert we wouldn't have thought to ask him why and he probably wouldn't have told us "they are bothering me and giving me a headache". When he decided he wanted to go to bed 2 1/2 hours before his bedtime, which he NEVER does....we may have just thought he was tired from a long hard practice, or that he was coming down with some type of illness. But, since we were alerted, we put the pieces together and took him to the doctor, who confirmed he had a mild concussion. He was put on complete brain rest (no TV, Xbox, school) until he was symptom free for 24 hours. We followed our own strick return-to-play concussion policy (since our organization and state do not currently have one). After a week of no symptoms, we slowly allowed him to return to his normal level of physical activity. We partnered with his teachers and coaches and continued to watch for any lingering affects for the next few weeks. Thankfully, he is back to his normal awesome self and is back to getting great grades in school and back to playing the sport he loves.
Without the alert from his ShockBox, he would not have gotten the brain and physical rest his brain needed for recovery. He would have been back on the ice at full pace just 2 days later, and would have been at risk of causing further and/or permanent damage to his brain. We will not allow our son to play hockey without a ShockBox on his helmet....his brain health is much too important for us to miss a hit that could cause an invisible disability such as a concussion.
I really think the device should be adopted by an entire team, with each helmet connected to the head coach's phone, so the coaching staff can get a better handle on the risk of injury during the course of an entire season. I know my son's lacrosse coach was extremely interested in my thoughts.
The bad--nothing too bad--the adhesive might not last an entire season, especially on the hockey/lacrosse version, which is attached to the outside of the helmet. For the football version, which is attached inside the helmet, I can't imagine the adhesive would be stressed enough (mostly by weather) to give. I've suggested to the Company that they reconfigure the hockey/lacrosse version to work inside the helmet and have been told they are working on it.
All in all, an excellent product whose time has come. I surely would never want my son to get hurt, but I also don't believe in wrapping him in bubble wrap for life--I want him to play hard. I love seeing him pop up off the ground after taking a hit, shaking it off and getting back in the action. Knowing I can monitor any real damage in real-time gives even a dad like me peace of mind.
