MyACTome has partnered with , the leading head impact monitoring system to help players, parents, and coaches detect the risk of concussion following a head impact.
Each year, nearly 4 million sports related concussions occur and half of them go undetected and untreated.
Over time, repeated head injury can lead to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), an untreatable brain disease that can cause memory loss, depression, dementia, and more.
The system can measure and provide real-time "alerts" about possible concussion-strength impacts to players via the Bluetooth enabled system .
After detection of a head impact, MyACTome measures the players postural stability and gait physiology to help parents and coaches determine if the head impact affected the players balance and stability.
MyACTome puts the power of knowledge and real-time information in the hands of those most concerned for the safety of the young people playing sports.
Movement Interactive, Inc. has developed the HijiBand® using wearable technology that allows athletes to optimize performance with real time data on an impact both given and received during active play.
