ABQ startup takes 3rd place in national competition

Albuquerque startup Pressure Analysis Co. won third place in Mobile Future’s annual technology competition for its’ SmackCAP skullcap, which monitors hits to the head suffered by players in rough sports such as football and soccer.

The company won $2,500 and a trip to Washington, D.C., where organizers of the competition will arrange for company CEO Michelle Urban to meet with policymakers and innovators. Pressure Analysis will use its winnings to continue developing software that receives real-time data on head blows from sensors in the SmackCAP for storage and analysis throughout a player’s career.

“This Mobileys win will allow us to develop a mobile app that provides parents peace of mind with respect to their children who play football,” Urban said. “We believe our system will contribute to increased participation in youth football and help parents make better, more objective decisions by means of data we deliver.”

The national competition aims to boost new mobile apps, products and services with potential for lasting social benefit.
