Tackling Undiagnosed Concussion in Sport

Low-cost, simple impact indicators.

Bringing peace of mind to contact sports, for players and loved ones alike

The Issue

Concussion detection is a critical issue in contact sport, particularly at a grassroots level where medical professionals are often absent.

Despite growing awareness of head injury risks, over half of concussions go unreported or unnoticed, posing serious long-term consequences, especially for young players.

Untreated concussions can result in cognitive impairments and permanent brain damage. Given contact sport's physical nature, it's vital for coaches, parents, and players to actively identify and address concussions to safeguard player well-being
