WNPR (August 21): “Changing the Science of Concussion" [AUDIO]

A new device developed in Connecticut aims to provide real time data about what kind of head impacts are involved in sport. This season UNH's football and men's and women's soccer teams will be wearing a new sensor developed by Connecticut entrepreneur Dale Hollingsworth. "And it's only about six millimeters thick, it's very tiny and it slips into a small little string band, a head band, or it slips into a skull cap that you see football players wearing today. And it sits just in the back of your head -- you don't even know you're wearing it, and yet it's communicating all the time," he says.
