FYE | Popular Science – MIPS – Helmets & the NFL

helmet2For this installment of “For Your Entertainment”, we look to Popular Science Magazine.

They recently published a great article detailing the state of the NFL’s precarious situation concerning brain injuries. The topic is much deserved considering the staggering number of concussions suffered each year from the sport and the long list of former NFL athletes who are dealing with the issues that these injuries bring about. The hard part is trying to come up with a way that still preserves the tenacity of the sport but still provides the necessary precautions that will help reduce the frequency of these unfortunate and devastating occurrences.

Not surprisingly, measures are being taken to develop a helmet that seeks to accomplish those goals. There is some fantastic innovation to be seen within this article. See for yourself!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    1. Hi,
      I’m sorry to hear that!
      I am assuming you clicked subscribe to comments for the whole site in general? or was it a particular post. I haven’t seen just yet if/where I can fix that for you, but I am looking into it.
      Thanks for notifying me!
