    Why not provide football helmets with impact sensing accelerometers? This will help to analyze how blows to the head relate to brain injuries.
    Three types of accelerometers will be placed in the mouthpieces, earpieces, and helmets to see if real time neuroanalysis can occur during the games, allowing for the isolation and diagnosis of the concussions within minutes.
    By the way, long-term data could provide information on how players become injured and help engineers design a better football helmet.
