Specifically the U of A team studied the contribution of individual neck muscles on the reduction of angular head acceleration in simulated sports contact. The goal was to identify the optimal ratio of strength between muscle groups that strength training should strive to achieve which reduces angular acceleration in common scenarios of impact.
“A Novel Concussion Active Prevention Testing Device for Neck Strength Evaluation During Sub-concussive Impacts” paper was presented at The Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME) International Congress 2018 in Toronto, ON, Canada. The RAM technology was clinically validated by the CSME.
