Checklight- an impact indicator

Checklight- an impact indicator




Alright, next four, next four!
JUSTIN STANLICK, HEAD COACH, JERSEY WILDCATS: We worry a lot about concussions. We have 20 players who we are responsible for and its two coaches and sometimes things happen behind the play.
GAGE MALINANOWSKI, PLAYER, JERSEY WILDCATS: My head kind of buckled and hit the boards.
We didn’t really see what happened at that time.
I saw the…saw the stars and everything. Five... five minutes later I started getting blurry.
The Jersey Wildcats, a Junior League team, will be the first hockey team to wear Reebok’s Checklight.
ROB RICH, DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH, REEBOK ADVANCED CONCEPTS: The Checklight is an impact indicator worn on the head during sports and fitness activities and when the device receives an impact above certain levels either a yellow light will start blinking to indicate a moderate impact or a red light will start blinking to indicate a more severe impact. I don’t know if I can do it, but I’ll try. So that’s integrated into a, um, a skullcap that’s worn underneath a helmet.
JUSTIN STANLICK, HEAD COACH, JERSEY WILDCATS: We’ll be behind the bench and as soon as a player comes back we can look right down and there will be a nice light, it will be light up right behind the player’s helmet and that way we know that player needs to see a trainer at that time to get cleared.
KYLE DAVEY, PLAYER, JERSEY WILDCATS: I know being a hockey player, playing for years; you want to keep playing no matter what. Sometimes you’ll take a hit and you’ll be like “Alright I want to get back out there.” Even though something doesn’t feel right.”
RYAN MUSCATELLA, PLAYER, JERSEY WILDCATS: Yeah, I had a concussion last year in lacrosse and at first I didn’t really feel anything and I was like “alright, that was a big hit...maybe nothing happened” but after a few days I was kind of dizzy and I’m like, you know, I should have probably gotten this checked out as soon as I got hit but I didn’t have any reference. I didn’t know what to look for.
JUSTIN STANLICK, HEAD COACH, JERSEY WILDCATS: You tend to see, sometimes, it’s a small hit that might seem insignificant and a day or two later, you know, the player starts to see symptoms and that’s one of the biggest challenges: how to recognize it as soon as it happens.
ROB RICH, DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH, REEBOK ADVANCED CONCEPTS: It’s not a diagnostic tool. It’s merely an impact indicator that gives the coach, parent, athletic trainer an extra set of eyes to make sure that athletes are assessed before they continue to play.
For us, as coaches, we want to see players long-term. We want to see them stay in the sport.
GAGE MALINANOWSKI, PLAYER, JERSEY WILDCATS: Watching interviews of professional football players that can barely function now, I mean it…it’s scary. I play a very physical sport and I don’t…I don’t want to be like that.
