The Only Thing We Know For Sure
Here's what we know right now: The science of concussions is governed by Newton’s laws on force, inertia, and accelerations. Engineering and modern high-tech solutions are available to manipulate and manage impact forces and their dissipation.
Our own initial test data from laboratory dummies indicate that it is feasible to reduce the impact force experienced at the head of a child by about a factor of two and thereby reduce the risk of concussion by a factor of five or more. It is a known fact that people don’t want concussions. Yet we are working hard because there are still unknowns out there.
Will our story satisfy the critical review of parents, athletes, and other story reviewers? I have no such doubts.
