Patented Concussion Prevention Testing Device Validated for Neck Strength Evaluation for Sub-concussive Impacts
First 5-Year Concussion Prevention Study Conducted by CAP Corporation, Auckland University of Technology, & Higher Level Sports Academy
The Research will Analyze CAP Data from the Kinematic Response to Impulsive Loading
Calgary, Alberta and Auckland, New Zealand - October 3rd, 2017 - CAP (Concussion Active Prevention) Corporation expands their research and partners with Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand (AUT). AUT is a five-star University ranked in the top 30 in the world for Sports Science.
In sports medicine there is a gap in quantifying the levels of strength to be protective against concussions. The CAP technology gathers head movements in response to a low amplitude force and demonstrates the capability of the athlete to resist concussions when exposed to higher forces. The research project will analyze the data gathered from over 1000 male and female athletes. Until now there has never been a technology available to test the correlation between strength and angular head acceleration on a live subject...
