Local Players Participate in Football Helmet Study

Local student athletes will participate in a study designed to measure head impact .  Sensors will be placed in football helmets worn by a pool of 240 players ages 6 to 18 years.  These results will help researchers at Virginia Tech -Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences understand child brain biomechanics and thus improve the design and protection of helmets.

Although numerous studies exist regarding football head injuries among professional or college level players, less information has been documented among younger players.  "We've got this whole group we don't know anything about, who are playing football through high school and college,"

said Joe Stizel, professor of biomedical engineering at Wake Forest University Medical Center.  He  cites recent studies at Virginia Tech documenting head impacts ten times the players' body weight.  More
