Friday, May 25th 2012:On Tuesday May 29, 2012, nogginPro Inc, in association with Cosmos Sports, will be holding a press conference at 11 a.m. at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto to introduce a new piece of protective headgear to the media and sports world. Planned speakers include Wendel Clark (former Captain of the Toronto Maple Leaf), Dr. Glenn Copeland (Chief Medical Officer of nogginPro Inc. and Team Podiatrist of the Toronto Blue Jays), Nat Rea (President of the Toronto Nationals Hockey Club) and Kerry Goulet (Director of stopconcussions.com).
Endorsed by former Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Wendel Clark, and former Major League Baseball player, Shawn Green, a new advancement in headwear protection, the noggin™, is a fitted skull cap designed to provide additional protection against sports related Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries. While helmets are vital in contact sports, they do not stand alone to protect against concussions. The noggin™ is designed with strategically placed gel packs adhered to a stretchable, breathable fabric. With head injuries on the rise in hockey, football, baseball and other contact sports, the noggin™ proves to be the start of a new trend in safety.
The motivation for Armando Pagliari to create the noggin™ came from being a concerned parent, and was backed by having over 20 years of experience in sports therapy treating professional athletes in the National Hockey League, Canadian Football League and Major League Baseball.
The noggin™ is the new "standard of protection to be worn under a certified helmet to maximize protection against direct blows to the head."
Dr. Glenn Copeland
Chief Medical Office of nogginPro Inc. and Team Podiatrist of the Toronto Blue Jays
The event will take place at 11:00 a.m on Tuesday May 29th, 2012 at the ESSO Theatre in the Hockey Hall of Fame and will include a complimentary lunch. Speakers will be available for interviews following the conference.
