Gaither had issue that was had been nagging him for years. Whenever he saw an injured player due to a concussion, he wondered if he could improve upon the performance of the equipment. Gaither was far from becoming an expert in brain injuries and had no background in engineering. Eventually he studied helmets and came up with a conclusion that focused on design and performance.
