New Video For 1001 Mitigator Uses- Shoe Insoles

Check out our new video for 1001 Mitigator Uses!  In this video we demonstrate how the Mitgator can be applied to shoe insoles, showing athletes the benefits of the Mitigator when used out on the field.  We pin it up against a generic shoe insole. After both demonstrations, you’ll find the Mitigator out performs the competition.

Colorado Rockies Pitcher Juan Nicasio Hit in Head

Over the weekend Colorado Rockies rookie pitcher Juan Nicasio was hit in the head with a line drive during a game against the Washington Nationals. The 24 year old pitcher was hospitalized after suffering  a C1 vertebrae fracture.

The incident is a grim example of how dangerous baseball can be.  Fans don’t realize the risk players take when they go out on the field every single game. This isn’t the first or last time a player will get hit with a line drive or fastball. It’s just the nature of the game. This incident should serve as a reminder of why it’s important to use quality equipment and cushioning systems to protect players not just in baseball but in other sports.

In Mr. Nicasio’s case it would have been difficult for any sort of equipment to have protected him since pitchers don’t wear helmets. That could change after Friday’s accident.  Using the MitiGator cushioning system on baseball equipment such as helmets would reduce the chance of a player receiving a serious injury like the one Juan Nicasio received Friday. Hitter’s are also exposed to the dangers of balls coming at them at 90 plus miles an hour.

A hit to the head can lead to serious injury, making it essential that the helmet absorb most of the impact protecting the player’s head in the process. Seas Group hopes that Mr. Micasio makes a speedy recover and that he may be back on the field in the not so distant future.

New 1001 MitiGator Uses Video: Batting Gloves

Here is our new video for 1001 MitiGator Uses! In this video I’m demonstrating how the MitiGator can be applied to batting gloves and baseball bats. You’ll notice I’m taking some swings at a local batting cage. I forgot to bring my helmet so I had the use an in-house helmet which had a face guard on it. It made it a little difficult to see the ball but I was able to get some solid contact while using the MitiGator! Visit our YouTube channel 1001 MitiGator Uses to watch all of our videos demonstrating the MitiGator.
