A new web site has been launched to share information about sports concussions and traumatic brain injury.
The Sport Concussion Library features a collection of scientific studies, documentaries pertaining to brain injuries. General information is tailored to parents, coaches, players, teachers and first responders, while education modules allow users to gauge and improve their knowledge of concussions. The site explains how to use important sports concussion tests and first responders and health workers can register to use it online.
Perhaps most interesting of all on the website are the various lengthy and candid testimonials from individuals who have experienced concussion firsthand, including hockey and football players, cyclists, and a wrestler, plus parents of injured athletes.
