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

Safer, a documentary produced by Brooke de Lench, founder and publisher of MomsTEAM.com. This one-hour program premiered on Oklahoma Educational Television in August and has been airing on PBS in other U.S. markets throughout this fall. The goal of the documentary is to help football programs play smarter and safer.

Brain Sentry sensors are made in the U.S. and easily affix to the outside of the helmet (on the back). The product senses head impact and acceleration and serves as an early warning signal for coaches and trainers.

Unlike a structural injury that involves a ligament or limb, brain injuries are not always apparent or detectable, so athletes sometimes continue playing without knowing they are at risk for further debilitating outcomes.

Among the 135 million participants in team sports in the U.S., concussions are one of the most commonly reported injuries. According to The American Journal of Sports Medicine, 39% of the high school and collegiate football players that suffered catastrophic head injuries were found to have been playing with concussion symptoms at the time of the catastrophic event. Under-reporting of concussion is a significant problem that sensors can help address.

Brain Sentry’s initial focus is to provide sensors for the three most popular helmeted contact sports: football, hockey and lacrosse. Brain Sentry is also developing sensors for biking, alpine, and other helmeted activities.

About Brain Sentry: Brain Sentry is privately held and headquartered in Bethesda, MD. The company was founded by a team of award-winning health-related product developers. Brain Sentry has a simple goal: to stop lives from being devastated by sports-related brain injuries. Learn more at http://www.brainsentry.com.
