Football Head Impacts
What type of collisions cause concussions on the playing field? This has been at the crux of our center’s scientific studies on head impact biomechanics with the UNC Athletics football program in a partnership rooted in 17 years of collaboration dedicated to improving the health and safety of our student-athletes at Carolina and across the world. We have studied this in several ways and across many sports. We are happy to partner with the National Football League on advancing this research area.
