With players, coaches, and the public becoming more aware of the risk of traumatic brain injuries, many are scrambling to find ways to improve player safety. A new cheap and effective way to monitor players for traumatic brain injuries may not come from a multi-million dollar sporting equipment manufacturer though. Instead, the new technology may come from a teenage football and Lacrosse player.
MSNBC highlighted how the teen created a small pad that fits on the outside of a player’s helmet. When the player sustains a hit that could have potentially caused a traumatic brain injury, the pad changes color, showing coaches and those in the stands the player may be hurt.
Similar devices have been marketed before at a cost of $150 to $1,000; however, the teen’s device could sell for as little as $20 per unit, making it affordable for high school and recreational league use.
The proof was in the pudding though when the young man tested his design at his high school’s recent homecoming football game. During the game, the sensors showed two players had taken hits that left them suffering from brain injuries.
The Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy understand the risks and dangers traumatic brain injuries can pose and are hopeful that this young man finds success in keeping others safe from harm through the use of his device.
