The 2011 College Baseball World Series began on Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska. In attendance for the opening day of the final part of the NCAA baseball tournament was Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Suh was at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, which is the new baseball stadium playing host to the College World Series.
While at the stadium, Suh found a picture of himself in an advertisement for Battle Sports Science. The ad was on the back of what appears to be a motorhome, and it promoted Suh's use of the "Impact Indicator," a product that apparently indicates the probability of a concussion. Here is more info:
The Impact Indicator takes sports safety to an historic new level. Small in size but big in benefit, it measures the force and duration of a hit to a player’s helmet. Instantly, players and coaches can know when or if a possible head injury is detected. Once alerted, a coach can get the player to the sideline for evaluation maximizing treatment, recovery and preventing further injury.
On every play, in every game and in every practice, the Impact Indicator will be there to measure the force of a hit to help identify possible head injury.
With there being so much concern over concussions in football, something like this will probably become standard football equipment in the next five years.
