    Seventeen peer-reviewed papers examine the science of the mechanism of concussion that occurs in sports. This new research could lead to the development of techniques and methods that would help decrease the risk, as well as prevent sports related concussions.

    Topics cover:

    Understanding Concussive Forces—measuring direct head impacts by using electromechanically activated force switches; comparison of large and small impact striker on dynamic response of Hybrid III headform; effects of impactor mass on the dynamic impact response and brain tissue deformation; Head Impact Technology severity profile (HIPsp)

    Techniques to Decrease Concussive Forces—need for sport helmet intended specifically for children; development of a helmet to minimize head injury risk in head impacts in football; need to change the current threshold of the Gmax; evaluation of ice hockey helmets; and more.

    Injury Field Data and Coaching/Training Techniques—determination of the most common types of ice hockey injuries and discussion of “Fair Play”.
