Team Wendy

Founded in 1997 by Dan T. Moore after his daughter, Wendy, passed away from a snow skiing-related traumatic brain injury (TBI). Team Wendy specializes in impact-mitigating products and technologies including helmets, liners, and retention systems for military, law enforcement, and search and rescue personnel. Their mission is to research, develop, design, and deliver the most innovative, protective, and impact-mitigating products and technologies on the market as well as researching the causes and prevention of TBI.


Working in conjunction with the US Military and the National Industries for the Blind (NIB), Team Wendy has supplied military personnel with over 6 million Zorbium® Action Pad (ZAP™) helmet pads since 2005. In 2012 they launched the EXFIL® helmet platform, marking their return to producing complete helmet systems. Team Wendy’s state-of-the-art testing, engineering, and chemistry labs and 62,000 sq ft manufacturing facility are located in Cleveland, Ohio.
