Former NFL Players Promote Upcoming TBI Detection Cap
Last year I wrote about a product designed by Reebok and Massachusetts based company MC10 which was intended to help diagnose brain injuries in football players through a skullcap laced with sensors and strategically placed LED lights which indicate if there has been a possibly injury causing collision.
Well according to SB Nation that product is being released this spring and it has a well known spokesman thanks to former Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and former linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski. The CheckLight is intended to be worn under helmets, and would be able to be used for any other contact sport, though the focus on football is clear.
Both players suffered brain injury through their careers, Kecyvenski endured an average of one concussion a year through his seven years in the NFL, which he credits as his inspiration to promote the CheckLight.
