The nonprofit TeachAids.org , which was spun out of Stanford University, has been working to create “concussion education reimagined for today’s generation.” Their first product is CrashCourse, a 10-minute video which was filmed in Virtual Reality and HD. The viewer is set on the field during a football game and must choose whether to leave the game after a significant hit.
The goal is to teach athletes to recognize concussion symptoms and to understand the health implications of staying in the game after a concussion. All-American Bryce Love and his Stanford football teammates are featured in the video.
A Symptoms Simulator is coming soon, making use of Virtual Reality technology.
TeachAids.org plans to distribute their suite of concussion education products to 10,000 schools and youth organizations.
