The company has also been busy, producing its impact sensing mouth guards, called the X-Guard, and its latest addition, the X-Patch, a skin patch worn behind the ear that is about the size of a nickel.

Both have sensors that record what happens inside a player's head when it gets smacked around. They can show whether the impact was above a certain magnitude or threshold.
