High school footballers wearing special helmets to monitor brain injuries
Date:9/27/2007

helmet for high school athletes.

We may find theyre getting hit in different places and need more padding in those areas of the helmet, for example.

In Tolono, the systems ability to monitor where athletes are incurring hits has already led to another discovery, just a couple of weeks into the season.

The system picked up one athlete who was hitting with the top of his head, a practice that could result in spinal-cord injury, Broglio said. Because they were able to identify the pattern, the teams coaches were able to work with the athlete to correct the habit.

As weve gone through this first few weeks using the system, for the most part its been very good, said Scott Hamilton, the Rockets head coach. As this revolutionizing (of the sport) gets better and better, it will be great. Anything to protect our kids is a wonderful concept.

As is often the case with most innovative technologies when theyre first developed, however, the initial cost of the system is likely to prohibit widespread use especially at the high school level. Broglio said the system being tested at Unity has a price tag of about $60,000; each helmet costs an additional $1,000.

Nonetheless, he and Hamilton remain hopeful that as more companies compete and additional systems enter the marketplace, the cost eventually will become more affordable for more schools.

Anytime you talk about money, its a fine line between how much money do you spend, and how much is it worth to protect the kids.
