Checking for concussions

The Michigan High School Athletic Association will begin a pilot program this fall using a new test to check for concussions in athletes. Executive Director Jack Roberts told WOOD-TV that anyone suspected of “getting their bell rung” will be asked to look at cards, or an iPad and read some numbers. The time to answer will be compared to a “test time” run on each player before the season begins.  A slower time would indicate a problem and that player would come out of the game and probably make a trip to the hospital. The test was created in association with the Mayo Clinic.  Roberts says the MHSAA hasn’t yet decided which schools will receive the test kits first.  (MRN)
