How Can You Help Your Child Prevent a Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury?
To help prevent a concussion or head impact, make sure your child wears the proper protective gear for each activity, whether they are participating in sports or simply playing at home.
Wearing a helmet is a must in many sports activities. To aid in concussion prevention, be sure the helmet fits properly and is well maintained. Helmets help to prevent head injuries, but no helmet is concussion proof. Even with a helmet, children should avoid all hits to the head.
The Head Health Management System is the only multi-platform head health management system that is designed to measure hits and help identify concussion symptoms. The system uses the Head Case Impact Sensor, a small, affordable device that is inserted into a helmet, to monitor and measure head impacts.
By reviewing the athlete’s normal impact history and comparing to national averages based on impact data collected by other users, the Head Case Impact Sensor can detect head impacts of concern and alert coaches, trainers and parents when statistically significant thresholds are exceeded.
If your child has received an impact of concern, the Head Case Mobile App provides a step-by-step field-side test to help detect symptoms of a potential concussion.
Instruct your child on the importance of following safety rules. Whether taught by a coach, parent or teacher, ensure that your child follows the rules for safety and rules of the sport. Following safety rules is a fundamental component of good sportsmanship, and makes sports accessible to all.
Help your child understand that if they do sustain a head impact or potential sports concussion, they should let you know right away. Any suspected concussions should be evaluated with a concussion test and assessed by a medical professional.
