Head injuries are common while playing. It is harmful to continue playing football or other contact sports after enduring a severe blow to the head. However, it is not always possible for athletes to know when they should move out of a game. With new devices, players can be informed about the extent of their injury.
Force Impact Technologies unveiled one such product at the CES 2015 which is called the Fitguard. It is a mouth guard which finds out the rate of acceleration. If the head’s acceleration reaches to a certain level, the LED lights which are attached to the mouth guard change color. It will turn blue from green and then finally red. The blue represents medium force impacts whereas red represents high force. Players with more severe impact should be evaluated before they join back the game.
The company plans to release the product on September.
