Gary Blanchard and Marcos Dantus, with MSU’s Department of Chemistry, have invented a headband that records the severity and location of impacts on the head.

This inexpensive detector allows coaches, parents and doctors to quickly decide to initiate concussion protocols at sporting events, such as football or soccer.
