College Lacrosse Featured in Key Concussion Study

0 - Published March 31, 2014 by in College, The Life

College lacrosse and accelerometers are finally coming together on a large scale. A study launched at Sacred Heart University is monitoring head impacts with accelerometers for the entire season.
