With an estimated 3.8 million sport and recreation-related concussions occurring annually, targeted prevention and diagnostic methods are needed. The goal of this project was to decrease the likelihood of repeated concussions in contact sports by designing a concussion sensing system for high impact sports. The team aimed to not just develop a device that measures impacts but to create an easy to use and inexpensive option so a larger portion of the stakeholders would have access to the device.
