Teenagers And Head Related Injuries

Professional football players are rewarded substantial amounts of money for playing the entertaining yet violent game of football. For many high school and college players, the risk is worth the reward, the reward being the potential millions a player can earn in the NFL.

The real risk of playing football can manifest itself not at the professional level,but at the high school level where young teenage players are subjected to violent hits that can hamper their physical and mental development. According to the Center for Disease Control, almost 2 million adolescent players suffer from brain injuries every year. Another scary statistic by the CDC points out that as much as 80% of concussion related injuries are undiagnosed, meaning that it is likely there is a silent epidemic among current and former players.

A concussion, according to Jonah Lehrer of Wired,”is not a bruise. It is not a sprain. There is no bodily metaphor for what happens when the Jell-O of cortex accelerates into the skull. Although the brain is surrounded by a cushion of cerebrospinal fluid, a severe impact or abrupt change in head speed can push those three pounds of meat straight through the fluid, so that it crashes into the cranium.”

Just imagine how it would feel if you got hit by a vehicle moving at a speed of 20 mph. That’s the level of impact a player can receive when hit by an opposing player(s). High School football is at the epicenter of the concussion epidemic because these brain injuries can interfere with the mental development of teenage players. Depression, headaches, memory loss, and blurred vision, are just some of the effects of head trauma that can impeded a players mental and physical growth.

The MitiGator And Skeletoes

Have you ever wanted to workout barefoot without actually being barefoot? Skeletoes, a five toe shoe combines the feel of being barefoot with the comfort of a running shoe. The soles of skeletoes are made of a thick rubber material that gives ample support and protection when running on hard trails or surfaces. The rest of the shoe is made out of Polyurethane material that makes the shoe light weight, durable, and water resistant.

The MitiGator Cushioning System, designed by Sea Systems Group  is a light weight cushioning material that provides protection from intense impacts and vibrations caused by external events. The MitiGator would be a great subsitute for the rubber sole beneath the skeltetoes since the MitiGator can replicate and improve the performance of the current rubber material used on the shoe.

Sea Systems Group already is developing shoe insoles that provide much needed protection for long distance runners who are subjected to constant pressure from running on hard surfaces. The MitiGator can provide the same protection for skeletoes and similar shoes. If you have any questions or would like to place an order, please click on the media link below.

The Concussion Epidemic

Head injuries in football are in the spot light as concussions and other head related injuries are becoming more prevalent. In October, a high school football player in upstate New York died after receiving a violent hit during play. ” An ambulance took the player to a hospital, and he was being transferred to a large medical center in Syracuse when his condition deteriorated. The ambulance turned around, but doctors were unable to save the the student’s life.”

A Purdue study on high school football players show that head related injuries are difficult to detect and aren’t as obvious until a brain scan is done on the athlete- meaning that many players may have suffered injury without even knowing it.  Severe head injuries can alter brain function leading to memory loss, headaches, and other symptoms. Purdue researcher Eric Nauman believes that football helmets are good at protecting against head fractures, however there not as good in protecting against concussions, according to Slate.com.

Severe injuries like concussions are difficult to diagnose increasing the chance that players can suffer long-term effects of their injuries well after the end of their careers. The equipment used in high school, college, and professional levels need to be fitted with the most advanced materials and cushioning systems that can reduce the risk of severe injury during play.  The right equipment can make a big impact when combating the concussion epidemic in organized football
