Head impact monitoring system now available commerciallyPrevent Biometrics, the Cleveland Clinic spinoff that created the first monitoring technology to detect potential concussion‐causing head impacts in real time, announced the commercial release of its newest innovation, the Gen 1.2 Head Impact Monitor System.The system alerts trainers and sideline personnel in real time when a student‐athlete receives a potential concussion‐causing impact and should be assessed for a possible concussion. The system includes a mouthguard with technology that measures linear and rotational acceleration and impact location and direction, and counts impacts received. Impacts are displayed in real time in the accompanying team app, which provides notification when an individual impact exceeds a preset threshold, along with access to concussion symptom checklists, and tools to manage student‐athletes through the stages of concussion protocol. The web portal provides schools with advanced analytics and reporting functionality to review head impacts by characteristics or for any subset of student‐athletes.For information, visit PreventBiometrics.com.Bill would boost oversight of endorsements, sponsorshipsA state representative in Kentucky filed a bill that would increase oversight of multimillion‐dollar endorsement and sponsorship contracts between private companies and college athletics departments.The bill comes on the heels of an investigation by the FBI and federal prosecutors into whether corporate money was used to illegally recruit college student‐athletes. If the bill becomes law, it would require boards of trustees at the state's public universities to review sports‐related contracts, reports WKYT.com. Such reviews would help protect each university's financial security and reputation, according to Rep. Kelly Flood, who filed the bill.Eating disorders significantly impact female college student‐athletesFemale college student‐athletes are more than twice as likely to develop an eating disorder than their peers, according to data from the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders. And one‐third to one‐half of those suffering from anorexia or bulimia also have comorbid disorders, such as depression or anxiety. But only about a third of those with eating disorders ever receive treatment.The organization's website (www.anad.org) offers resources for learning the symptoms and verbal cues of eating disorders; steps for helping a student whom you think might have an eating disorder, including whom to notify and when; and educational partnerships with companies offering app‐based support programs.
