  • Heart Guard for Hockey

Like other sports with high impact projectiles, baseball, softball, and lacrosse, hockey players are too at risk for a rare but fatal condition from impact injury known as commotio cordis. This condition is caused when a puck hits the pliable chest wall of young athletes with such impact and timing to cause the heart to go into sudden cardiac arrest. To prevent this possibly fatal condition, XO Athletic encourages all young hockey players to wear heart protectors while playing hockey. XO Athletic's own heart protector for hockey, the XO HeartShield, as been designed to absorb and disperse energy, not simply block it like competing heart protectors.
