WEARABLE NEURO-TECHNOLOGY FOR CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT

Many concussion injuries are mismanaged in emergency departments, sports medicine clinics, and athletic facilities because there is a lack of portable imaging methods to monitor the injury. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), a non-invasive optical imaging system that measures changes in blood oxygenation in the brain, has shown promise as a concussion monitoring tool. Can you build a sleek, wireless, wearable device that uses NIRS technology to monitor concussion patients?
