Concussions per Sport

The numbers below indicate the range of sports concussions taking place per 100,000 athletic “Exposures” which means practices and games. A team of 80 members would have 80 exposures with every practice.   Practice 5 times a week for 12 weeks and each athelete will have 60 exposures.   This is what Whitcomb Technologies aims to tackle, an unacceptably high rate of concussions in sports.
