Every year in the US, over half of the 4M sports related concussions go undetected. Undetected concussions aren’t treated, which greatly increases the risk that an athlete will suffer permanent neurological damage from the injury. Armed with an exclusive, global license agreement for patented technology developed at Cleveland Clinic, Prevent is developing a mouthguard and mobile app that monitors athletes in real time for concussion causing impacts. Their product ensures that athletes who may have sustained a concussion are identified immediately and pulled to the sidelines for assessment, greatly increasing the likelihood that the athlete receives proper treatment and experiences a full recovery.
