Safety Check: detect if your ball is over-inflated

We have added a new “Safety Check” mode to BallTune: detect if your soccer ball is safe or over-inflated in seconds.

Check with your phone if your soccer ball is safe to play with this new feature (already available on Android and iOS).

Having a soccer ball properly inflated – and not over inflated, will help to reduce the risk of injury from heading the ball.

  • With higher ball pressures (more inflated balls), the forces delivered to the head increase.
  • Make sure that the ball is inflated to the correct pressure and of a size that is appropriate for the age group.
