Newcastle, Oklahoma High School Provides Football Team with Brain Sentry Impact Sensor, Helmet-Mounted Device Helps ID Players Who Need to be Evaluated for Concussion
Date:11/4/2013

Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

Brain Sentry Impact Sensors™, innovative helmet-mounted devices that alert when an athlete suffers a rapid – and potentially dangerous – acceleration of the head, are now being utilized by the Newcastle (OK) high school football team to help its coaches and trainers identify players who need to be evaluated for concussion. The Racers’ use of the sensor will continue for the rest of the season.

Brain Sentry Impact Sensor’s patent-pending sensor technology includes a micro-electromechanical, tri-axial accelerometer capable of measuring acceleration from any direction. Helmets provide varying levels of impact protection depending on the direction of the hit. Brain Sentry’s proprietary, DAS™ technology (Directionally Adaptive Sensing) provides a consistent alert level – independent of hit direction or helmet type.

Greg Merril, co-founder and CEO of Brain Sentry, said, “Our compact sensor system accurately measures impact forces, it’s affordable and it does not burden coaches. It is light (1-oz), waterproof, there is nothing to maintain, the batteries last all year without charging, and you don't even have to remember to turn it on or off.”

Tony O’Brien, Superintendent, Newcastle Public Schools, said, “The Brain Sentry sensor is like a hidden gem on the helmet. You barely notice it’s there, but what it is doing to protect our players is awesome.”
