Undiagnosed concussions can place athletes in vulnerable positions to permanent neurological dysfunction. Research is showing brain injury can exist even in the absence of a clinically diagnosed concussion, proving the difficulty in relying on the observational method currently in use.

CTE is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain caused by the untreated and poor management of repetitive head trauma, including symptomatic concussions as well as the accumulation of asymptomatic subconcussive blows to the head.
Currently, there is no way to accurately quantify the head impacts that cause this disease.
(SIS) occurs when an athlete suffers a second concussion causing impact before symptoms from an earlier one have subsided. Without the appropriate diagnosis and management of the initial impact, exposure to both a severe or in many cases non-severe secondary impact can result in SIS.
Our Advanced Impact Recognition System aims to eliminate this risk of concussion going undiagnosed by identifying and alerting the first significant impact to caregivers who may never have identified a concussion causing impact to the naked eye.
