HALO is a revolutionary step forward in the reduction of whiplash injury and concussion in contact sports. HALO is an advanced compression shirt, engineered to work in real time to instantly reduce whiplash motion of the neck and head during impact.
AEXOS has spent the last 3 years developing HALO, sourcing state of the art “smart” materials, and partnering with top medical professionals, engineers, and manufacturers across 5 countries to create a new era of protective equipment that enhances an athlete’s resistance to injury.
HALO works with the athlete to provide support to the head and neck in a way that no other product has done before, without compromising on mobility or performance.
Leading medical research links whiplash injury and concussions. During normal play, HALO remains soft and flexible, but “stiffens” during impact to slow the rate of whiplash motion of the head and neck, reducing major biomechanic factors of whiplash injury and concussion.
HALO provides postural support to the athlete, increasing the body’s kinaesthetic “awareness” to improve the body’s natural protective reaction time during impact.
AEXOS has partnered with the Government of Canada’s Build in Canadian Innovation Program (BCIP) to conduct field testing and validation with divisions of the Canadian Military, including the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), and Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM).
HALO is available in black and white colorways in both sleeveless and sleeved models. All materials and stitching have been tested for durability.

Risks and challenges
In a commitment to make sure that we are able to service all of our backers in a timely manner, AEXOS has taken the initiative to complete the manufacturing of molds for all sizes, and pre-ordered materials to be delivered to our assembly facility.
The proceeds of our campaign will allow us to initiate full-scale production and begin to stock our warehouse locations to ensure efficient shipping times. We have taken these measures to reduce our delivery timeline to your home to within 10 weeks of our campaign completion.
Although we have taken measures to prevent delays, we recognize that there may be shipping challenges that are beyond our control. You have our commitment to transparent communication until your HALO is delivered.
It is important to note that HALO is part of an overall preparation and safe play regimen to reduce concussion related injuries. There is no substitute for safe and fair play, in addition to the right equipment, to prevent injuries. We urge all of our backers to visit our friends at Safe4Sports for more information. http://safe4sports.com/Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
