MIT Students Invent Gadget to Detect Concussions in Young Athletes

The Jolt Sensor, founded by Ben Harvatine and Seth Berg, was originally an engineering lab project at MIT that was inspired by a concussion suffered by Harvatine during wrestling practice. "Many athletes like myself continue to play without realising they’ve been concussed, so there needs to be a way to alert parents, coaches and athletes of dangerous impacts as soon as they happen." The Jolt Sensor is a tiny 1.37in smart wearable clip that can be attached to any type of athletic headgear.
