Technology on the Sidelines
Much in the same way "virtual" technologies are used in telemedicine,
teleconcussion allows a neurologist to assess athletes suspected of sustaining
concussions during sporting events via "robot."
The sophisticated teleconcussion technology used to successfully mimic
a real-time consultation uses a specialized camera system that is remote
controlled. The neurological specialist has the ability to see a patient
immediately, whether around the block or miles away.
In maneuvering the robot, the neurologist is able to do the following:
- Assess a player for symptoms and signs of a concussion
- Simultaneously consulting with the sideline physician or athletic trainer
who is available
Sideline neurologists aren't available at every athletic event, but
a teleconcussion robot can offer the next best thing - at a time when
the player in question may need it most. Because we know that timely intervention
is required when a concussion or other traumatic brain injury is suspected,
teleconcussion technology offers sports organizations the next best thing
to having an actual neurological expert with them on the sidelines.
