RSK Medical Inc. is pleased to announce a partnership with TOZUDA Inc. to distribute their HEAD IMPACT SENSOR across Canada.

May 26th, 2022

“TOZUDA came to my attention on LinkedIn as I have suffered a few concussions myself while playing football, hockey and downhill skiing in my past, said President, Scott Kadwell of RSK Medical Inc.. “I was also touched by the movie called “Concussion” depicting the findings of pathologist Dr. Bennett Omahu who brought the issue of brain damage to the forefront amongst NFL football players and the public domain. He discovered “Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy” (CTE) in Pittsburgh Steeler players who had experienced repeated head blows which had terrible effects on their medical conditions and lifespan.

“It is easy for parents or coaches to assume players will not incur head injuries and some associations are afraid to acknowledge even the best protocols will not pick up all the head injuries due to the nature of the support and how hits impact people differently”. “Intentional or accidental hits are going to happen”. “It is important to have the “peace of mind” that the high impact hits will get checked out”. It is scientifically documented that 50% of head injuries go under diagnosed or undetected. In addition, 90% of diagnosed head injuries do not involve a loss of consciousness. Each additional hit is accumulative to causing further damage to the injured brain.

The TOZUDA Head Impact Sensor can be easily attached to hockey, snowboarding, snow-skiing, football, cycling and construction helmets to name a few. Please check out the website for further information or contact RSK Medical Inc. at

Please take note we also represent electroCore which manufactures a non-invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulator (nVNS) called the Sapphire for treatment of migraine and cluster headaches.
