Brain impacts and athlete participation
“I don’t usually post my falls or talk about them because I want people to see the fun in what I do,” Brown said. “But this was my worst fall, and I just want everyone to know that, it’s OK, don’t worry. I’m OK. It’s OK to fall sometimes. I’m just going to get back up and push even harder. I know there’s a lot of things going on in the world right now. I want everyone to know that whatever we do, we’ve just go to do it with love and happiness.”
Impacts and participation
The intelibean was specifically designed to monitor and alert for brain impacts.
Worn behind the ear and attached to the mastoid process, the intelibean alerts parents, trainers, and coaches should a significant impact take place.
The intelibean records all impacts, however only sends alerts that are over an individualized threshold.
Only alerts will initiate the Concussion protocol followed by a particular sport or club.
The system will store the responses to any questions asked, and send reminders when tests should be re administered.
In addition the alerts can be linked to a registered healthcare faculty to ensure the impacts of all players receive the same level of care, follow up and treatment.
Reports can be generated to monitor and track improvements based on rule changes, training, fitness levels.
