LAS VEGAS — Football in America is under attack after the revelation that concussions cause serious brain damage rocked the NFL. Youth participation has plummeted in the last two years but the folks at Linx have a new solution that will help parents keep track of when their kids are getting pounded too hard on the field.


The Linx IAS sports monitor is a tiny Bluetooth sensor athletes can wear in a skull cap or headband to keep track of every impact on the field, no matter if they’re playing football, lacrosse, soccer, hockey or pretty much any other contact sport.
