Company Summary

The biggest challenge in concussion management (particularly in youth sports) is to figure out when a player needs to be evaluated — players want to play and coaches, too often, don’t know (or want) to pull their players. Brain Sentry provides objective assessment of impacts so coaches, trainers, and parents can take the appropriate steps. Sports leagues, schools, parents, players, and helmet manufacturers are target customers.
