Spectrum News: Mouthguards and More Help Middletown Zero In On Concussions

posted by Athlete Intelligence — on  ,  , 


MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. — Middletown High School’s football team has for two years now used a mouthguard called Vector while looking at ways to decrease concussions. The device tracks information like how many hits a Middie Bears player has had on the field, so players and coaches can come up with a strategy to minimize injury.

In the fall, the high school will utilize another tracking device called Cue Sport Sensor. It attaches to headbands and skull caps so that players can use it whether or not they have a helmet. This will allow athletes at the school in sports other than football to use the technology.
