Guardian Caps are currently utilized by 200+ colleges, 1500+ high schools, and 500+ youth programs to reduce impact during practice. The Cap augments any existing helmet to make it flexible and soft, able to more effectively manage energy and mitigate repetitive, cumulative blows. As of 2020, NFL testing validates the benefit of Guardian Caps and the NFL and NFLPA have decided to permit the Guardian Cap to be used by lineman in NFL practices.
