New concussion technology at use in All-American Bowl

The best high school players in the country will be participating in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Saturday, set to kick off at 1 p.m. ET on NBC.    Many of them will be using an innovative technology that could help change the way concussions are treated.

John Taylor of CFT has all the details on the device which helps to diagnose concussions.  The device will be inserted into the chinstrap of many players, and measures the g-force of a collision.

Depending on the force of the hit, a light indicator will alert sideline personnel on three levels of a possible concussion.   The player can then be evaluated quickly on the sideline to determine whether it’s a serious problem.

While we’re here, we may as well mention Florio and Peter King will be appearing at halftime of the game before our Saturday wild card double header.
