THE EFFORTS TO KEEP FOOTBALL PLAYERS WITH A FILE ON THE FIELD AT ONE HIGH SCHOOL IS GOING HIGH-TECH. EARLIER TODAY, THE HEAD COACH SHOWED US A NEW MOUTHGUARD THEY SAY HELP THEM BETTER UNDERSTAND THE ANATOMY OF A FOOTBALL HIT. CARMEL HIGH SCHOOL, THE HOME OF THE COWBOYS AND RECENTLY, ONE OF TWO TESTING GROUNDS IN THE COUNTRY WHEN IT COMES TO THESE. THEY GRAB A MOUTHPIECE. IT POPS OUT. THEY ARE KNOWN AS IMPACT MONITORING MOUTHGUARD MADE BY BIOMETRICS. ARE JUST LIKE ANY OTHER EXCEPT THEY HAVE DIGITAL CENTERS AND BLUETOOTH TECHNOLOGY, WHICH IS USED TO COLLECT DATA ON HOW FREQUENTLY A PLAYER GETS HIT, THE TYPE OF HIT AND EVEN THE GEFORCE ASSOCIATED WITH CONTACT. THIS IS REAL DATA YOU GET. WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION CAN YOU SEE IMMEDIATELY? YOU CAN SEE THE IMPACTS RIGHT AS THEY HAPPEN. COACH MIKE SAYS THEIR NEW HIGH-TECH MOUTHGUARD WERE PAID FOR BY THE SCHOOL’S BOOSTERS AND THEY HAVE COMPLETELY CHANGED THE WAY THEY MONITOR ATHLETE COLLISIONS ON THE GRIDIRON. THEY WANT TO DO THINGS TO CREATE THE SAFEST POSSIBLE SCENARIO FOR YOUR KIDS. YOU WANT TO MAKE THE GAME SAFER. WITH THIS DATA, COACHES CAN TAILOR PRACTICES OR KNOW WHEN A PLAYER HAS HAD TOO MUCH. FOR STUDENT ATHLETES, IT IS ANOTHER LEVEL OF SECURITY TO KEEP THEM SAFE AND HEALTHY. INJURIES CAN HAVE LONG-TERM EFFECTS. IT IS SUPER IMPORTANT TO ME AND THE PLAYERS THAT WE LIVE LONG AND HAPPY LIVES. THIS HELPS ENSURE THAT WILL HAPPEN. TECHNOLOGY IS A GREAT RESOURCE.
