Military shockwave sensor used for sports concussion detection

Early detection of concussion can enable more rapid treatment and better outcomes.

The Linx IAS  sensor detects head impact severity during sports training.  It was built upon military technology that measures the  impact of  explosion shockwaves on the brain.

The sensor is part of fabric headband.  Concussive forces are transmitted to an app that rates each blow from 1-99.  Each rating has an associated traffic light color code.  Green signals a low level “sub-concussive” blow, while red identifies a severe hit.
