  • Lacrosse Heart Protector

Young athletes in high sports with high impact projectiles are at risk for a rare, but possibly fatal condition known as commotio cordis. Commotio cordis causes sudden cardiac arrest due to high impact against the pliable chest walls of young athletes, and lacrosse players are historically those at highest risk. To help prevent commotio cordis, and other heart related impact injuries, XO Athletic has designed, tested, and manufactured a lacrosse heart protector - the XO HeartShield. The HeartShield works to protect the heart not by blocking the energy of a projectile impact, but by absorbing and dispersing the impact energy away from the heart area.
