Winthrop company wins $250,000 grant for technology to prevent head injuries

James Ferguson, a native of Scotland with a background in engineering, became interested in head injury prevention because of his six children and their love of soccer.

“A lot of kids were very afraid of heading the ball, so I made a honeycomb device called the ‘Clash Band,’” Ferguson said. “It took the sting out of heading the ball and gave them confidence so they can develop the muscles in the neck and teach them how to not hurt themselves. But I never intended to do anything with it or make it.”
