Football Impact, Stabilizing the Brain

Sub-Concussive ImpactsA new collar has been created that may have the potential to reduce the movement of the brain inside the skill during football impact.

“The idea behind such a collar, which was originally inspired by studies of animals that tolerate repeated blows to the head, is to slightly increase the amount of blood in the brain and thereby cushion it in a way no helmet can”, says Julian Bailes, a co-inventor of the technology, chairman of neurosurgery at NorthShore University HealthSystem, and co-director of the NorthShore Neurological Institute in Evanston, Illinois.
