The chinstrap that was initially tested on the field during the Army All-Star High School Football game will be on a team in the Indoor Football League next year.
The Indoor Football League has announced that the Omaha Beef will begin testing the Battle Sports Science’s concussion monitor chip. The device will be available nationwide in 2011.
It is important to note that this device is a good TOOL for medical staff’s to use. There is no way this can detect if there is an actual concussion, but having the ability to see, in real time, that there was a force great enough to possibly disrupt brain function is an exciting development. This device is also cost-effective compared to current models out there.
We will continue to follow this development. Remember this is a tool!
