An American Company is Tackling Football's Concussion Problems

As concussion litigation is threatening the livelihood of football, America’s favorite sport, small companies around the country are taking it upon themselves to seek solutions. POC Ventures in Georgia has created The Guardian cap.  The device rests above the helmet and pops off after what is deemed a major collision, signalling to sideline doctors the player requires scanning for potential concussion. It is being sold to high schools for use in practice (where a majority of concussions occur at that level). Guardian sales rep Steve Cook did not invent the device but he’s made it his mission to put them in as many high schools as possible. Can it become the invention that re-instills confidence in the American parent and persuades them to allow their children to continue playing the game? Football fans everywhere are rooting for nothing less.
