Episode #7: Brain Sentry

Brain Sentry

Football is a killer game. But should it be killing our kids? One entrepreneur is trying to prevent that. Brain Sentry measures football impacts and helps manage concussions.

According to a 2010 study by the American Academy of Pediatrics, 40% of all sports related concussions happen to children ages 8 to 13. That represents roughly half a million visits to the emergency room every year. And no – the numbers haven’t always been that high – they’ve doubled in the past decade. This inspired health care entrepreneur Greg Merril to develop a helmet sensor for kids’ helmets that would let parents and coaches know when a child has a potential concussion.

Bob Smith interviews Brain Sentry inventor and founder Greg Merril on this week’s episode of Why Didn’t I Think of That? – The Podcast.
