Summary:
About 400,000 high school and college athletes suffer a concussion each year. It’s not surprising to find out that football players are most at risk. In fact, at least one player sustains a mild concussion in each game, but did you know that you can get hit hard, not sustain a concussion, and still put your brain at risk? Now, there’s a new test that can show within seconds if a player should be pulled from the game even if they don’t have a concussion.
