Shawn Springs originally founded Windpact to minimize sports-related concussive head trauma

CEO Shawn Springs, a recently retired NFL player acutely aware of the damage caused by collisions, initially studied the technology behind football helmets. He was shocked to discover that helmet technology across industries had not changed much in 30 years.

Springs excelled at football in high school and was recruited to play at The Ohio State University, as his father, Ron Springs had. It was challenging to follow in his father’s footsteps, an All-American running back who went on to have a successful NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys.
