Azalea’s Dr. “Bones” Jones talks to KETK NBC about concussions and the latest tech used to combat them on the field.
From KETK NBC:
Tyler, TX (KETK) Concussions continue to be a huge problem among athletes. Scientists all around the country are working on different ways to detect concussions. Some of that innovation includes apps, mouth guards and padding. The Texas A & M football team among other universities agreed to wear a mouth guard made by I-1 Biometrics. The “Vector Mouthguard” monitors location impact and force of impacts. It measures the brain’s linear and rotational accelerations from impacts. That information is sent to a smart phone device, so trainers and sideline staff can monitor athletes.
