Unequal HALO Now Available at T&B Sports Stores in Time for Baseball Season

T&B first California retailer to carry acceleration-reducing head protection

GLEN MILLS, Pa., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unequal® Technologies, the leading provider of personalized, concealed sports protection, announced today that the Unequal HALO, supplemental head protection specifically designed for use in baseball hats, is now available at T&B Sports. Unequal protection is already trusted by professional athletes in the MLB, NFL, NHL and X Games, as well as at colleges, universities and youth leagues across the country.

Stephanie Camara, T&B Sports manager, said, "We believe that while no safety gear is infallible, the Unequal HALO offers baseball players the best supplemental head protection currently available. The HALO is lightweight and comfortable, and it provides excellent protection when added to a player's hat."

The HALO is one of a suite of supplemental head padding products manufactured by Unequal using a patented military-grade composite fortified with Kevlar® and Acceleron. Easily placed into baseball hats, the HALO uses ART (Acceleration Reduction Technology) to help reduce acceleration upon impact.

Gunnar Sandberg, who took a line drive to the head in 2010, attended the sixth annual T&B Sports youth league sign-up event Jan. 4, 2014, to talk to parents and players about the importance of Unequal's protective products. He said, "Unequal is the real deal. I think if I had had Unequal, it would have saved what I went through. Lots of companies have tried to make things like this but always had something missing. But not Unequal; it can make the game safer."

"Partnering with T&B Sports is an important step for Unequal as we expand our distribution of protective products for athletes of all ages," said Rob Vito, CEO of Unequal Technologies. "We believe that anytime you're on the diamond, you should be protected and comfortable. The more that baseball teams and organizations adopt the HALO, the more parents, coaches and players can enjoy the game with greater peace of mind."

The Unequal HALO is available at T&B locations in Santa Rosa and San Rafael, Calif.  

Unequal also manufactures other protective sports gear for the head, body and custom use. To learn more about Unequal products or Unequal Technologies, visit unequal.com.

T&B Sports will host a second weekend of youth baseball sign-ups on Jan. 11 and 12, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at their Santa Rosa location for the following youth leagues: Santa Rosa American LL, Rincon Valley LL, Mark West LL, Westside LL and Challenger LL.

About Unequal Technologies

Unequal Technologies' mission is to protect people in the military, sports, work and life. Unequal Technologies is the leading provider of supplemental protection technology. Its patented fusion of a military-grade composite fortified with Kevlar®, Accelleron and optional ImpacShield is engineered for personalized, concealed protection.  Unequal is committed to help reduce blunt force trauma generated by sports and military impacts. Professionals in the NFL, NHL, MLB and X Games, as well as college and youth athletes in football, baseball, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, action sports, contact sports and other activities, wear Unequal's protective head and body gear.

Remember, head and body protection are the second line of defense. Being careful and responsible is the first priority. Helmet and body pads do have limitations. No helmet pad can prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports. Scientists have also not reached agreement on how the results of impact-absorption tests relate to concussions. No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact-absorption tests. Unequal products are not bulletproof, bullet-resistant, stab-resistant or stab-proof. Obey the rules and code of conduct of each sport, game or activity. Use common sense and practice safe sports.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
