Concussion and Protective Equipment in Contact Sports

Concussion is a form of mild traumatic brain injury, commonly associated with impacts to the head while participating in contact sports. In such instances, a diagnosis is often made using subjective screening tools, this does not always provide a diagnosis but helps in identifying a suspected concussion. Research shows that concussion can be identified more reliably through analysis of biomarkers present in cerebrospinal fluid, blood, as well as in saliva following concussion. We feel that this technology could be potentially incorporated into  the mouthguard of players to better identify and treat concussion.
