St. X, Moeller aid in concussion prevention study
St. X’s and Moeller’s football teams participated in a study of an experimental collar to minimize concussions in contact sports. Greg Myer, PhD, FACSM, CSCS*D, director of research, Division of Sports Medicine, helped with the study and explains how the collar helps protect the brain from injury.
