  • Evaluation of Spot Light: A Concussion Injury Management App for Youth Sports
    Principal Investigators: Lara McKenzie, Ph.D., Center for Injury Research and Policy, The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio and Dawn Comstock, Ph.D., Colorado School of Public Health, University of Colorado, Denver

    Guidelines exist to help doctors diagnose and manage sports-related concussions, but guidelines are not fully supported by evidence-based research, are applied inconsistently, and those responsible for the care of injured athletes do not always fully communicate with each other. The goal of Drs. McKenzie and Comstock's project is to test the effectiveness of Spot Light, an easy-to-use mobile application (or app), developed by Inlightened, LLC. This app was designed to help doctors, coaches, athletic trainers and parents of young football players track the progress of a young athlete from the time of a concussion injury until they are cleared to return to play. The researchers want to know if the app will result in more concussions being reported, a greater number of referrals to doctors and better adherence to return-to-play guidelines. The goal is to improve diagnosis of concussions that are occurring among young athletes, and ensure that they are receiving appropriate care and are fully recovered before getting back on the field.

  • Eye Movement Dynamics: A Rapid Objective Involuntary Measure of Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
    Principal Investigators: Nicholas Port, Ph.D. and Steven Hitzeman, O.D., Indiana University School of Optometry, Bloomington

    People can choose where to look, but they do not have much control over some of the intricate eye muscle movements that are usually made without thinking. Studies have shown that eye movement problems are common in mild traumatic brain injury patients. Drs. Port and Hitzeman, in collaboration with team tra
