FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why should I use the SG360™?
Women's Lacrosse has rules in place to try and minimize the impacts that are common in Men's Lacrosse. However, as much as the players try to adhere to these rules, incidental impacts will and do occur. The SG360™ is designed to cut down the odds of potential injuries caused by these unfortunate impacts from sticks and collisions without changing the culture and traditions of this unique Women's sport.
Why is the top of the head of the SG360™ open?
The crown area of the the on the SG360™ is open for venting and to prevent the players from leading with their heads. Most incidental impacts are not on the top of the head. Players are less apt to drop their heads and spear opposing players when they don't have protection in that area. We don't want women to feel invincible and to ram or butt their heads like men have been known to do. Most serious injuries in the boy's game come from the spearing or head butting cause by a false sense of protection on the top of the head, which leads to broken necks and MBI. Players should never lead with their heads.
Why does the SG360™cover part of the ear?
The SG360™is designed to protect the most vulnerable areas of the head. Coverage over part of the ear is necessary to protect the temple area and soft region directly in front of the ear which is susceptible to injury from impacts
Why does the SG360™ extend over the front of the crown?
When a girl is going forward and looks down to get a ball, the front of her head in vulnerable to impacts from sticks and other players. So the front crown coverage is extended to protect that part of the head.
Why the goggle attached to the SG360?
We designed the SG360™ to be used as one unit with goggles that are currently on the market. We had two basic goals: First, we wanted to be sure the headgear did not interfere with the proper fit of the goggles and for it to stay in the correct location, as defined by the goggle manufacturers; our second goal was to make sure there was no gap between the goggle and the headgear, so a blow from a stick to the forehead would be protected.
Has the SG360™ been tested?
The SG360™ has been tested and the results have shown that the SG360™ affords protection for a player being struck in the head with a stick. The severity index results for the head forms impacts were decreased to below 300 SI. 300 SI is the estimated nominal tolerance level for Mild Traumatic Injury (concussion) due to peak linear acceleration according to NOCSAE standards.
What percentage of Women's Lacrosse concussions are caused from incidental impacts from sticks?
According to US Lacrosse, 49% of women's lacrosse high school girls that received concussive injury, received them from impacts caused by sticks. (US Lacrosse Webinar: Head Protection in Women's Lacrosse, May 2, 2012)
Does the SG360™ have a break-in period?
The SG360™ will become formed to the player's head and more comfortable with use. Usually 10-15 hours, of use, is sufficient break-in time.
