The Gray Matter Mouthguard transmits impact data to a mobile device over Bluetooth Low Energy™ within seconds.
Data is compared to a lifetime of impact data stored in our proprietary cloud database.
An authorized coach, player, or trainer is sent an alert within seconds of an athlete receiving an impact past a pre-set threshhold, or an unusual number of smaller impacts.
Our easy to use mobile application allows parents and athletes to log and time-stamp symptoms during recovery.
The Center for Disease Control defines as concussion as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump or jolt to the head that can alter the way the brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly. What is sometimes described as a "ding" or "getting your bell rung" is actually a very serious brain injury, and is the result of a collision between the brain and the surrounding skull.
No number can yet be read off of a screen to diagnose a concussion. Coaches, trainers and medical professionals can use our product as a tool to help highlight athletes that have sustained impacts past a pre-determined threshold, for example at which a previous concussion was reported, or numerous high-g impacts compared to their peers, but even these metrics are not a guaranteed indicator of injury. Concussions can occur under a number of different conditions. If concussion symptoms are present, please consult a medical professional or trainer who has experience with traumatic brain injuries, even if our mouthguard does not indicate a significant impact has occurred recently.
