THE DATA
BEHIND THE DATA.

ONE CONCUSSION IS BAD ENOUGH. MULTIPLE CONCUSSIONS CAN BE DEADLY.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that is caused by a blow to the head or body, a fall or another injury that jars or shakes the brain inside the skull. Although there may be cuts or bruises on the head or face, there may be no other visible signs of a brain injury.

 

Typical symptoms of concussion as reported by SportsMD.com include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Delayed verbal/motor response
  • Confusion/difficulty concentrating
  • Disorientation
  • Slurred or incoherent speech
  • Incoordination
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Inability to remember recent or past events
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Photophobia (sensitivity to light)
  • Sensitivity to loud noises
  • Fogginess
Several studies in the 1970s and ’80s documented the cases of three athletes who died after suffering more than one concussion. Now, more than ever before, medical professionals and athletic trainers understand the catastrophic impact that repeated concussions can have on an athlete. Second Impact Syndrome is a rare condition that occurs when a second concussion occurs before a first concussion has properly healed causing rapid and severe brain swelling that could lead to permanent disability or death (BrainandSpinalcord.org). Even with all of this modern knowledge, there still isn’t a concrete platform that coaches and athletic trainers could use to evaluate an athlete’s injury and recovery from a concussion.

Until Now.

A REVOLUTION IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HEAD INJURIES

Vector™ MouthGuard: A revolution in the fight against head injuries. We’re tackling the growing epidemic of undiagnosed Sports Brain Injuries head on.

At its core, our state-of-the-art mouth guard transmits real-time information, allowing immediate assessments of a player’s ability to remain on the field. It’s the first solution of its kind, with precision accuracy that only intracranial detection can provide.
 
Hit Detection Our ESP™ Chip Technology utilizes embedded microscopic technologies that accurately measure the hits and accelerations a player’s brain experiences during play.
Data Transmission Data is transmitted in real-time to a laptop on the sideline and is stored on a secure internet database.

Notifications & Alerts Sideline personnel can view alerts and notifications about a player’s status with a mobile notification device or computer from the sideline. The system provides tools that help assess an athlete’s ability to return to play or establish recovery protocols.
