Headgear To Monitor Brain Injuries

Wow, the future of brain injury care across Tampa, Clearwater and Sarasota is going to look wildly different than what’s in place now.

We often touch on research advancements at the Tampa Bay Brain Injury blog, and today is one of those days. There’s exciting research out of Colorado regarding an inexpensive helmet of sorts to monitor the brain and detect injuries, the Times of India reports.

The compact, portable sensors decipher neural activity by measuring changes in the brain’s tiny magnetic field. These small magnetometres – still in the laboratory and in prototype – have yet to be tried on athletes. But their potential is enormous for brain imaging and for inexpensive monitoring of brain diseases, as well as for many other applications like the control of prosthetics, said Dr Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Houston.

Brain injury lawyers and medical professionals have so much to keep track of in order to offer their clients the very best of care. That won’t change soon, so choose wisely.
