Impact Sensors: Brain Sentry


"Safety of our players is a priority. Over the past two seasons the AFL has worked with a world-class brain injury task force to develop League-wide protocols for identification of players who need to be assessed for possible concussions. We had been looking at sensor technology for several years, but until we saw the Brain Sentry Impact Counter and tested it, we did not feel there was a solution that was practical and deployable for the AFL. Brain Sentry head impact sensor technology is clearly part of the solution."

Jerry Kurz, Commissioner Arena Football League (AFL)


"There are things we are changing based on what we have learned from using the Brain Sentry sensors. We are trying to be smarter with our contact drills and our practice habits. We think it's making a difference -- we minimized concussions in the last year and we will do it again this year."

Les Miles, Head Coach, LSU Tigers


"For me personally, I think the era of dumb helmets, in which you have no clue how many impacts that brain inside that helmet has sustained, is quickly coming to an end. I think sensors are a big part of the solution for football. The Brain Sentry solution is the best I have seen."

Julian Bailes, MD, Neurosurgeon & Medical Director, Pop Warner Football


"Sensors can help identify potentially at-risk players, preventing the dangerous problems associated with under-reporting of concussions and second impact syndrome. What I really like is that the Brain Sentry sensor is calibrated to alert when the helmet in use experiences rapid acceleration or deceleration."

Jake Gilbert, Head Football Coach, Westfield (IN) High School


"The number one priority for all of our events is the safety of our players, and preventing and diagnosing head injury is critical to achieving success. The Brain Sentry Impact Counter is a practical and easily deployable solution."

Rich McGuinness, President, All American Games


"We are strongly recommending that each of our parents purchase a Brain Sentry Impact Counter Plus to help identify players taking too many head impacts, using incorrect tackle techniques or who need to be assessed for a concussion."
