Bishop Union Football Adds Smart Helmet Technology

Bishop Broncos Football Team Implements the Athlete Intelligence CUE+ Helmet Sensor for Real-Time Head Impact Monitoring and Workload Management

The Bishop Union Bronco High School Football program (CA) has signed a 3-year agreement with Athlete Intelligence.  The Broncos Football team, led by Head Coach Arnie Palu , has selected the CUE+ helmet impact monitoring system.  For the next 3 years, each football player will utilize the CUE+ sensor for game and practice sessions so the Football Coaching and Athletic Training Staff can monitor player technique, impact workloads, and hard hits as they occur.

The CUE+ helmet sensor is the newest head impact monitoring product released by Athlete Intelligence.  Combining system automation with real-time head impact data collection, football teams select the CUE+ system because it has proven to be the easiest head impact monitoring system to use.  The CUE+ helmet sensor tracks the total head impact workload for each session, along with where each head impact takes place on the head and how hard it is.  Football staff members will be notified instantly when a head impact occurs at or above a pre-set G-Force threshold when used in live mode.  Following a session, Staff Members can review the Athlete Intelligence Web Dashboard or receive automated e-mail reports that provide a summarized overview of impact workloads by each player.  Impact time-stamps are also recorded so teams can pair the reports with their practice or game film.

Bishop Union High School has always had a cutting-edge football program. In fact, the football team has tried other head impact sensing technologies in the past but found Athlete Intelligence to be the best and easiest to use.

Athlete Intelligence has quickly become the head impact monitoring system of choice by youth, high school, and college-level football teams.  Teams who use the Athlete Intelligence system gain the most value by identifying players with a high crown of head impact counts and high head impact workloads.  When these trends are identified, Coaches can work closely with those players to improve their technique to the proper form of removing the head from unnecessary contact.  Teams that use the Athlete Intelligence head impact monitoring system have reduced impact workloads by more than 29%.

Funding for the system came from the Superintendent of Schools who was a dual sport athlete in high school.
