San Rafael High School football players testing concussion-monitoring technology

 

SAN RAFAEL (KRON) — San Rafael High School football players are testing out concussion-monitoring technology used to hopefully curb concussions.

They are paving a new way to monitor concussion symptoms in real-time. The school tested the equipment in the spring.

Now, the entire football program is wearing what are essentially brain sensors. These high school athletes are the first in the Bay Area to wear the devices that monitor head impact.

The high school’s JV and varsity lacrosse team, and the girl’s soccer team, were the first to wear the headbands during¬†the spring.

KRON4’s Philippe Djegal went to the high school to take a look at the new technology.
