Sensing strips slide into a moisture-whicking ROSH Headband or Skullcap, worn during event. ROSH Sensors Do Not Prevent Concussions And Are Not Diagnostic.">

The ROSH Sensors register the blunt force based on the g-force on impact. BY having this instant record of the instance, a coach or player can willfully identify with their status and the avoidance of second impact syndrome (SIS).

Second impact syndrome or SIS is a very rare condition in which a second concussion occurs before a first concussion has properly healed. This causes a rapid and severe brain swelling and often catastrophic results. Second impact syndrome can result from even a very mild concussion that occurs days or weeks after the initial concussion.


Concussion

  • Concussion, or Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) can occur as a result of a blow to the head
  • Concussions are difficult to diagnose because some symptoms may take days to appear
  • Diagnosis of concussion can only be made by a medical professional

Second Impact SYNDROME

  • SIS occurs when a person suffers a second concussion before symptoms from an earlier one have subsided
  • This second blow may occur minutes, days or weeks after an initial concussion
