Waterloo startup develops shirt to help protect against concussions

Waterloo — Rob Corrigan feels lucky to be alive.

A decade ago, the Kitchener native suffered a serious scare when he was rocked by an opponent while playing hockey for Ridley College, a private school in St. Catharines.

"I was hit in open ice," the 27-year-old said. "Apparently, I did a back flip in the air and was unconscious for about 30 seconds. It was a pretty big hit."

Older brother Charles had a similar experience.

The one-time Kitchener Jr. Rangers hockey player has suffered four sports-related concussions, including a whopper when he was just 17.
