Iowa State University and New Company Team up to Build Better Football Helmets

An Iowa State University student has teamed up with Cross Over, a new company started by two Iowa residents, a television producer and a financial adviser, two neighbors from Carroll.

The two are worried about the future of football if the safety of the sport is not improved. That’s why they started working on ideas and partnering with engineering students at ISU to design an effective and safe football helmet to prevent concussions. This movement came to fruition in June with the university’s new program, The Startup Factory. The Brain Injury Alliance of Iowa executive director said parents and athletic medical staff are increasingly worried because no one knows how many concussions one person can take. He noted that he “applauds anybody who tries to develop a better safety device.”
