A helmet sensor and data retrieval system measures impact and pressure events continuously. This device is placed into the helmet, weighing only 2 ounces, to analyze the correlation between experienced head forces and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury. This will aid in determining whether a Soldier should seek immediate medical attention and aid in the long-term care of the Soldier. Using low power, the battery can last up to 12 months. The National Football League is interested in an exchange of information that could aid in development of future systems capable of targeting and measuring affects to specific parts of the human body.
