I came across an article by Thomas Adams of the Rochester Business Journal that discusses the big strides being made in baseline testing for concussions.   An innovative new product, The Equilibriate System, once designed to help the elderly is now showing it’s benefits in the sports world testing for concussions.

Concussions account for nearly 10% of all high school athletic injuries. “Any movement forward [to protect against concussions] is positive,” said Dr. Welsh, an alternate delegate for the Indiana State Medical Assn. “What I don’t want to see is someone have a concussion that’s missed, and the next one is the bad one.”
