Reebok has developed Checklight, an impact sensor for the head which can be worn under a helmet and records the number of hits at different intensities. It has a flashing indicator that will indicate a level of impact sufficient to warrant removal from competition for assessment.

While football is the sport getting the most attention regarding concussions and other head injuries, hockey is another logical sport for this.
