ASU football program is first collegiate partner in TGen-Riddell concussion detection study
Date:9/12/2013

n enables us to be proactive in helping to advance the game and enrich the lives of our student-athletes," said Steve Patterson, Vice President for Sun Devil Athletics. "Involvement in this study is consistent with our long-term goals, and also increases awareness and understanding of this important topic, as well as furthers the Pac-12's Student-Athlete Health and Well-Being Initiative."

The Sun Devils' medical team, consisting of athletic trainers and physicians, will not see the data or interpret any results until the end of the season, and the student-athletes wearing the Riddell SRS sensors in their helmets volunteered to partake in the study.

At the heart of the study is merging a player's molecular information with real-time head impact information captured by Riddell's exclusive SRS technology. Riddell, in partnership with Simbex, LLC, was the first to introduce a helmet-based player monitoring and response system to the sport of football. The data output provides researchers, athletic staff and players with a wide range of valuable information transmitted directly to the sidelines via wireless communication on the frequency and severity of head impacts a player receives during games and practices. Riddell SRS has captured over 1.8 million impacts from youth to elite football competition since instituted in 2003 by several well-respected research institutions, leading to important rule changes and informing new helmet designs.

With the high expectations for the Sun Devil football team this year, Arizona State's implementation of Riddell SRS reinforces the school's commitment to their student athletes' well-being and helps to ensure they're performing at the optimal level.

"Together with Arizona State University, TGen and our other important research partners, we at Riddell hope to answer a number of key questions that will lead to improved player protection, inform our continued development of new helmet innovations
