Concussions, or mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI), can lead to life-altering forms of impairment. At stake is an individual’s ability to function physically, cognitively and psychologically. The data is astonishing. In 2003, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated more than 1.5 million people sustain TBI annually in the United States. The latest data now has that number at more than 2.87 million.
Team Wendy relentlessly pursues improvements to head protection for the benefit of men and women who risk their lives every day. Our engineers and researchers honor the memory of Wendy Moore by digging into causes and effects of traumatic brain injury with the sole purpose of discovering new prevention methods that can be adopted by the communities we serve. In addition to executing our mission and upholding our quality policy, there are several Team Wendy initiatives working toward this goal.
