St. Xavier HS football squad tests first-of-its-kind concussion collar

Cincinnati Children’s is partnering with St. Xavier High School and Moeller High School’s football teams to conduct a study on a collar-like device to prevent concussions.

It puts light pressure on the jugular vein to increase the cranial blood volume, keeping the brain from sloshing around inside the skull, according to Michael Gordon, St. X’s head athletic trainer.
