Ratings for Football Helmets Help Improve Player Safety

 In News

Over the last decade or so, researchers have worked tirelessly to zero in on just what happens to a player’s brain when it is subjected to multiple collisions each with the force of a car crash. One important advance has been the Head Impact Telemetry (HIT) System from Simbex of Lebanon, N.H. Six MEMS accelerometers, a temperature sensor, a wireless transceiver, nonvolatile onboard memory, and a battery pack—all mounted inside a helmet—allows researchers to measure the movement of the player’s skull with a high degree of sensitivity.
