Challenge

Concussion has been linked to early onset dementia and is of increasing concern to players in a number of sports. Injury risk is one of the major reasons for parents stopping their children playing contact sports.

Solution

Our Vision - To speed recovery and set back the advance of early onset dementia for all sports people through the use of science and technology. Our mission - To drive the development of new products and processes that prevent, diagnose and treat concussion related issues including, but not limited to, early onset dementia for sports people.

Long-Term Impact

1. Education - Players, coaches, families educated on prevention, identification and treatment. 2. Diagnosis - Every pitch side team has an instant concussion diagnostic device. 3. Protection - Every player has access to technology that mitigates vascular damage. 4. Play - Our sports continue to be played as we know them, by all, young.
