Stanford Athletes Use High-Tech Mouthpiece to Record Head Impact
from Stanford University School of Medicine
Stanford University football players this season are wearing mouthpieces equipped with tiny sensors to measure the force of head impacts during games and practices. The goal is to help medical scientists better understand what sorts of football collisions cause concussions, as well as whether there are any positions or particular plays associated with a greater risk of these traumatic brain injuries. The mouthpieces contain accelerometers and gyrometers that measure the linear and rotational force of head impacts.
