iPad App Concussion: NFL Hoping to Benefit from use of Apple iPad Concussion App

iPad App Concussion: Most people understand that the NFL is a dangerous league. Every year, there are gruesome injuries to go along with multiple concussions. Fortunately, the league and its players are doing whatever it takes to improve the overall level of safety. This includes using an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad app that will help team doctors diagnose whether or not a player has suffered a concussion.

In other words, NFL teams are going even more high tech in the near future.

Apple is one of the hedge fund industry’s most popular stock picks, and it’s always important to pay attention to the smart money (see just why here).

ESPN first reported this story, sharing information on how it will work at the league’s annual scouting combine.

Here is what the article had to say:

“League officials demonstrated how the new system will work at the annual scouting combine Friday in Indianapolis. The move comes after a recommendation from the NFL’s Head, Neck & Spine Committee.”

A Leading Company Cheaper Than 90% Of Blue Chips... And It Recently Bounced 12%It is important to note that the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) app is not going to change the questions players are asked after a head injury or the treatment received. That being said, the app is used primarily to “create a scoring system to determine if there are large discrepancies between a player’s baseline score and his gameday score.”

A large discrepancy between the two would go a long way in helping to pinpoint a concussion.

There is no denying the fact that this Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad app is going to come in handy during the next NFL season. That being said, technology can never completely takeover for the work of a qualified doctor.

The article goes on to add:

“Seahawks team doctor Stanley Herring, a committee member, says that while it will help diagnose head trauma, team doctors still need to trust their observations and instincts, too.”

It will be interesting to see how much publicity the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad concussion app will receive next season. And of course, it will be even more interesting to see if it helps improve player safety, which is most important.
