An estimated 3.8 million sports- and recreation-related traumatic brain injuries occur each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And WAY too often, the injury is overlooked: A 2013 study from the National Academy of Sciences found that high school athletes had a “culture of resistance” to reporting concussions and following treatment plans.
This wearable solution has been created to detect and report Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in youth sports. Not only do they have a cool, customizable wearable technology, but they have also developed a mobile app that integrates with the Hiji Band to report on brain injury-related activity to ensure parents, coaches, and athletes are aware of any damage caused during practice or games.
The Hiji Band consists of an impact-detecting sensors that fit comfortably inside our custom headband, coupled with computer software that automatically collects and stores impact data, and sends real-time alerts to key personnel via our mobile app when a player suffers a strong head impact. The software wirelessly integrates with the Hiji Band, and facilitates long-term data collection that allows teams to compile a “lifetime” record of all notable head impacts that the player has received. The software will also render impact data in easy-to-understand images, graphs, and text.
