About the solution
Brenda's son Connor plays rugby. There was no solution on the market to protect his ears. "Connor played rugby from mini rugby. From when he was wee he was always having to have head gear on and gloves and mouth guards to protect him. I always worried about him getting injured", she explained.
Brenda's invention consists of a silicon ear guard to prevent injury and protect cartilage. Her innovation is already being used by rugby players, judo professionals and wrestlers. Brenda hopes to roll it out to all contact sports internationally.
This custom made device protects the ear from impact, which helps reducing the risk of ear trauma and damage to the cartilage, without impairing the hearing.
The mother owns a dental laboratory, where she produces this product (the price starts at £80.00).
