How Head Impact Sensors Avoid Long Term Unnoticed Brain Damage
While ROSH Sensors do not prevent concussions and are not diagnostic.They can record the magnitude and location of a blow to the head. This information can be of importance as an extension of the clinical evaluation.
The CDC estimates that 1.6-3.8 Million sports and recreation related concussions occur each year in the U.S.It is believed that up to as many as 20% of HS Football players experience a concussion in a given year.
Recently, impact sensors measuring the forces which, when transmitted to the brain, cause sports-related concussions were only used by scientists in conducting research. However, in the the last several years, there have been a growing number of companies to introduce to the consumer market the first generation of impact sensors intended for real time monitoring of impacts to the heads of athletes in actual games and practices.
