The purpose of this study is to determine early detection of concussion for those at risk of developing symptoms and to be able to detect subconcussive cerebral impairment, and thus gaining a better understanding of the injury patterns for concussions in Men's and Women's Collegiate sports.
Changes in cognition secondary to impact [ Time Frame: 5 months ]
A mouthguard with built in sensors to collect data above the predetermined acceleration thresholds. The predetermined threshold for acceleration will be set to 5G in order to collect more data about subconcussive impacts, in addition to concussive impacts
Secondary Outcome Measures :
ImPACT Testing [ Time Frame: 5 months ]
Tool to help detect and assess the severity of concussion in athletes by establishing a baseline of memory and cognitive function
King-Devick Test [ Time Frame: 5 months ]
Objectively measures visual tracking and saccadic eye movements
C3 Logix [ Time Frame: 5 months ]
Concussion Assessment application with the ability to track a patient's dynamic vision reflexes and ability to focus on moving objects
