Marshall University Upgrades Athlete Monitoring Technology
Marshall University Football Upgrades Athlete Monitoring Technology to the Athlete Intelligence CUE+ Helmet Sensor
Marshall University’s football team has taken a significant step forward in player safety by upgrading their head impact monitoring technology. The team has recently adopted the Athlete Intelligence CUE+ helmet sensor, which provides real-time data on the severity and frequency of impacts to players’ heads. This new technology is a major step forward in the ongoing efforts to improve player safety in football.
The Athlete Intelligence CUE+ helmet sensor is a small device that fits inside a player’s helmet. It uses advanced sensors to measure the frequency and severity of impacts to a player’s head during games and practices. The data collected by the sensor is then analyzed, which provides coaches and medical staff with real-time insights.
The University has been an Athlete Intelligence partner since 2018. Over the years, the program has used the VECTOR MouthGuard and CUE Sport Sensor.
“We decided to upgrade to the CUE+ helmet sensor to monitor repeated and high-level impacts,” said Biomechanics Program Director, Dr. Suzanne Konz. “We are in the process of forming a new collation between Marshall Biomechanics and Marshall University Athletic Training Services that allows us to use the sensors as an objective check on possible concussive events,” Dr. Konz added. “We will use the insights to intervene sooner and to improve the return-to-play and return-to-learn protocols.”
By collecting real-time data on head impacts, the CUE+ helmet sensor allows coaches and medical staff to make more informed decisions about a player’s safety. For example, if a player sustains a particularly severe impact, the sensor can alert medical staff to the need for a concussion evaluation. In addition, the data collected by the sensor can be used to identify patterns of head impacts that may be putting players at risk. Coaches can then use this information to modify practice drills and game strategies to reduce the risk of injury.
“We are thrilled to see Marshall University renew their agreement and upgrade to our most advanced technology,” said Andrew Golden, Director of Business Operations. “I’ve had the privilege of building a strong relationship with Marshall University and working with them extensively over the years. It is rewarding to know that we continue to fill a critical gap when it comes to their focus on player head safety,” Golden adds.
Adopting the Athlete Intelligence CUE+ helmet sensor by the Marshall University football team is a major step forward in player safety. By collecting real-time data on head impacts, the sensor provides coaches and medical staff with valuable insights into the health and safety of their players. This technology is an important tool in the ongoing efforts to improve player safety in football and reduce the risk of head injuries.
