In-Helmet Sensor Technology to Detect Brain Trauma

The National Football League (NFL) abides by a regulated concussion protocol, which involves the presence of medical professionals to constantly monitor players’ symptoms throughout the game, however, the repercussions of repetitive concussions, such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)2, remain a prevalent problem in this industry.

To further understand and diagnose athletes with concussions at the immediate moment in which the injury occurs, athletic equipment manufacturer, Riddell, has developed an in-helmet sensor known as Riddell Insite, to detect such traumatic injuries. Originally founded in 1922 by inventor John T. Riddell, who created the company by his initial interest to develop removable cleats, Riddell has been a leading manufacturer of protective and enhanced sports equipment.
