WHO WE ARE
APEX Tri-M Innovations, Inc. was established in 2010 when forward-thinking founder, Lenard Harris, resolved to make American Football safer and to also provide a better quality of life following a career on the field.
Drawing on his experience as a city police officer, Mr. Harris developed an innovative design that has now been perfected, patented and proven to protect the lives and well-being of athletes in collision sports, employees in hazardous occupations, and our heroes in military and police services.
WHAT WE DO
APEX Tri-M Innovations, Inc. researches, designs and develops technology that integrates into safety equipment for collision sports, hazardous vocational occupations and military-grade operations including body armor, equipment and select means of transportation.
We partner with industry experts at the university, government, and private sector levels with a diverse board of directors who input evidence-based information vital to the refinement process needed for the ever-evolving changes in technology and impact consequence.
APEX invests in diverse entities, including finance and community development, with a focus on providing opportunities in individual upward mobility, small business development and sustained cultural diversity.
Head Health Injuries
An increasing rate of chronic and traumatic brain injuries in athletes due to a lack of innovative, protective helmet design
Declining Youth Participation
Fewer young athletes are participating in sports, which assists with the development of important life skills
Mental Health Disorders
Increasing prevalence of long-term mental health disorders that are induced by CTE and intracranial trauma
Introduce a helmet that is 37% safer than our toughest competitor at top impact
The APEX design changes the gross physics of impact and reduces the shockwave energy that reaches the head and brain
APEX will introduce and continually improve its technology which has been tested and proven to better protect against sports- and military-related head injuries
OF 143 APPLICATIONS
TO BE IMPLEMENTED
Composed of triangular sections, the APEX R90 Helmet changes the gross physics of impact by absorbing shock at a precise point and distributing it along a wide base. The geometric design reduces the shockwave energy that reaches the head and brain resulting in a decreased chance of injury, trauma and concussion.
The APEX R90 Helmet has been proven through NTS testing to be 37% safer than the leading competitor's product at top impact.
