Some even offer financial benefits to athletes who sustain traumatic brain injuries.

Unfortunately, however, many people affected by these injuries do not have the financial means to receive these benefits.The FIT Clinic in Brampton, Canada, wants to make sure that all people involved with sports-related activities are adequately informed about the risks involved in these activities.

Concussion Treatment Brampton Program aims to help people suffering from TBI (traumatic brain injury) receive the benefits they need.

One of the most decisive and also quite obvious facts is the reduction in future risk of suffering from a TBI.

These medical professionals will also make referrals to therapists, or other specialists should an athlete require it.Aside from reducing the future risk of suffering from a TBI, the Concussion Treatment Brampton clinic can also reduce the current costs related to TBI.

This includes ensuring that the injured person takes proper nutrition and sleeps on a suitable bed.Many people who have had an injury at work know how stressful it can be to have a TBI.

Today, during a World Cup game between Morocco and Iran, Moroccan winger Nordin Amrabat suffered a wicked head injury when he collided with an opponent.

“It’s not normal to wear them,” says Steve Rowson, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Virginia Tech who just completed tests of 22 commercially available models.

To mitigate the risk, padded headbands have been on the market for nearly two decades, and FIFA, the sport’s international governing organization, allowed them for play in 2004.

His team slammed the two dummy heads together, with and without headgear, and the embedded sensors measured linear and rotational acceleration at three different speeds and two locations on the heads.

Those values were used to calculate value representing how much the headband reduced a player’s risk of concussion for a given impact, according to Rowson.

A few goalkeepers, like former Czech Republic captain Petr Čech, wear them religiously.

Thankfully, awareness of concussion-related trauma has increased in recent years.

Although diagnosing a concussion can still be a guessing game — thereby potentially exposing patients to additional risks.

Researchers at Penn State College of Medicine think they have a new diagnostic tool for the job, however: By analyzing folks’ saliva.

The results are 85 percent accurate not just at predicting whether a person is suffering from a concussion, but whether or not the symptoms will last longer than four weeks.

“Currently, doctors mainly rely on reports of symptom and medical history to make educated guesses about how long symptoms may last after a concussion,” Steven Hicks, an assistant professor of pediatrics, told Digital Trends.

“In this study of 52 children with concussions, we showed that epigenetic signaling molecules in saliva, called microRNAs, can potentially predict symptom duration with greater accuracy than standard concussion survey methods.”

BETHESDA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 25, 2019–

BrainScope announced today that it has successfully completed a nearly five year, $9.9 million U.S. Department of Defense research contract supporting the development and validation of an objective marker of the presence and severity of concussion.

In a large blinded validation study, the system demonstrated its ability to help clinicians assess concussion at the time of injury, reflect severity of injury, and aid in their assessment of readiness to return to activity.

Through the research contract, the BrainScope “Concussion Index”, an EEG-based, multimodal marker for concussion, was developed and then validated in a blinded clinical study.

All pre-specified performance targets were achieved or exceeded.

These clinical studies were conducted from 2015 through 2019 at 52 clinical sites, and included nearly 1,700 patients and healthy controls with over 4,000 evaluations conducted at high schools, colleges and concussion clinics.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that between 1.6 and 3.8 million concussions occur each year in the US.

In addition, research indicates that nearly a quarter of annual traumatic brain injuries among children are sustained during high-contact/collision recreational activities or sports.

Medical professionals and field-side staff must base concussion-related decisions on overt symptom assessments (e.g., balance, neurocognition) and self-reports that often provide incomplete, misleading or conflicting information.

"Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury and we know it's under-reported because, so often, it goes unnoticed or undiagnosed.

When a concussion or suspected concussion occurred, participants were re-tested within one to 48 hours after the event to collect post-event blink reflex measurements and standard concussion evaluation protocol results.

Control athlete data revealed significant differences in specific blink reflex parameters between baseline and active play.

Whether some American football players suffer from concussion after a hit on the head may depend on the number and severity of head impacts that they sustain in the days, weeks, and months leading up to the concussion, rather than a single large head impact.

Stemper is lead author of a study on concussion in college football in the Springer-branded journal Annals of Biomedical Engineering.

The findings provide further support for policies that try to limit head impact exposure during football training and games.

Many studies have already shown how the structure and function of American football players brains change throughout the course of their careers.

The findings of these studies suggest that damage to the brain following successive head impacts reaches a certain tipping point, by which an athlete's chances of suffering concussion increases.

To investigate whether repetitive head impacts play a role in the onset of concussion in college football players, Stemper and his colleagues turned to Division 1 of America's National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

New Concussion-Specific FDA Labeling Adds to Existing BrainScope Claims

Complements Multi-Modal Technology Platform and Extensive Intellectual Property Portfolio To Address New Brain and Behavioral Health Conditions

BETHESDA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–January 2, 2019–

BrainScope , a medical neuro-technology company focused on concussion and mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) assessment, announced today that it has received FDA clearance to include additional language in its product’s Indications for Use (IFU), adding key terminology related to “multi-modal, multi-parameter assessment” of “concussion” and “mild Traumatic Brain Injury”, as well as an expanded and clarified overall IFU.

All capabilities are summarized on a panel of multimodal, multi-parameter results, greatly facilitating clinical concussion assessment.

Researchers are only now starting to unravel the potential long-term ramifications of a seemingly minor traumatic brain injury (mTBI), or concussion, to our health.

Part of the difficulty has been in even figuring out when someone has a concussion in the first place, leading to lots of unnecessary and not entirely risk-free brain imaging tests.

But a new blood test, approved by the US Food Drug and Administration (the FDA) on Thursday, is poised to make that task much easier.

The test, known as the Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator, tests for two proteins, called UCH-L1 and GFAP, that are released into the bloodstream by the brain following a head blow that causes visible lesions to form.

In its largest trial, which involved blood samples taken from nearly 2,000 people suspected of having a concussion, the test was compared against computed tomography (CT) scans.

CT scans are considered the gold standard of concussion detection, but the majority of people who are suspected of having a concussion—via a diagnostic questionnaire—fail to show any visible brain lesions.

Jamshid Ghajar once asked a NFL football “spotter”—a person who watches games for possible brain injuries—how he recognized a player with a concussion.

The spotter replied, “Well, if he kneels down and shakes his head, he may have a concussion.”

As a neurosurgeon and director of the Stanford Concussion and Brain Performance Center, Ghajar was more than a little dismayed with that answer.

In search of a more accurate, yet speedy way to diagnose concussions, Ghajar and a team at SyncThink, a Palo Alto, California-based company, have developed a mobile eye tracking technology to diagnose concussions based on clinical research.

Their goal is to transform concussion diagnoses from guesswork into an objective test.

The EYE-SYNC technology—a VR headset platform that tracks eye movements and reports signs of impairment within 60 seconds—was approved by the FDA last year and is now being rolled out to Pac-12 football schools and hospitals around the nation.

Any athlete can benefit from the new Cue Sport Sensor, which reduces the risk of concussion across a variety of activities.

Contact sports carry a risk of brain injury from both one-time collisions and long-term exposure to repeated impacts.

To lessen the risk of serious injury, companies like Athlete Intelligence, formerly i1 Biometrics, are pouring a significant amount of time and effort into developing technology that can monitor an athlete for signs of a concussion.

This company already produces a helmet-sensor and a high-tech mouth guard for high-impact sports, and now it has unveiled the Cue Sport Sensor, a sensor small enough to fit on a headband or skullcap, and versatile enough to be used in almost any athletic endeavor.

Existing concussion detection technology is focused on helmeted sports like football and hockey, which uses head impact sensors to monitor an athlete’s movements.

These sensors, usually mounted on a helmet, send the collected data to a computer platform which parses this information and assess the probability of a concussion.

Concussion from high-impact sports like football have gathered a great deal of attention over the past decade as studies have emerged detailing some of the long-term impact of repeated head trauma.

SyncThink, which was founded by Dr. Jamshid Ghajar who heads the Stanford Concussion and Brain Performance center, is aiming to discover concussions earlier and with more accuracy than existing solutions, by utilizing virtual reality.

A clear advantage of the company s EYE-SYNC system is that it s highly portable, another is that its very private.

Numerous instances regarding how concussion tests are being gamed by players so that they can stay in the game have been disclosed over the years.

Those problems are far less common for SyncThink s VR headset solution which effectively cuts the person taking the test off from the rest of their environment.

The company uses a DK2 Oculus Rift developer kit outfitted with eye-tracking sensors to give athletes and other concussion-prone individuals access to a quick and effective method of detecting whether a person is suffering from brain trauma.

The FDA has announced approval of a blood test that helps determine the severity of a concussion.

The blood test isn’t a substitution for existing diagnostic methods, such as giving the patient a CT scan, but can help determine whether a concussion has happened and whether a CT scan is necessary.

The test can be used to reduce radiation exposure to patients.

The blood test helps fill a need when it comes to diagnosing concussions.

According to the FDA, many patients who suffer a concussion, also known as mild traumatic brain injury, don’t have any detected intracranial brain lesions, which makes a CT scan uncessary.

Doctors also traditionally use the 15-point Glasgow Coma Scale for diagnosing concussions.

What they do: Their app seeks to keep young athletes safer by helping coaches and trainers report and properly treat concussions and other injuries and medical conditions.

Why it’s cool: There’s been plenty of buzz recently about the dangers of concussions in impact sports — including the link between playing in the N.F.L.

and the degenerative brain disease C.T.E.

Those hits to the head can have long-term impacts on young athletes, affecting their health, memory and learning — and can even be lethal, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

PRIVIT is trying to help protect kids’ heads — and other body parts too — with an app called Sideline.

For example, if a young player suffers his or her second concussion in a short period of time, Sideline would know and alert the coach, who then won’t be at risk of accidentally putting the child back in the game too soon.
