UVA Researchers Finding Ways to Make Football Safer

Fri, 09/11/2015 - 8:52pm -- WCVE

Researchers at UVA say some football collisions are like a car crash. 88.9 WCVE’s Charles Fishburne has this Science Matters report.

Richard Kent, a Biomechanical Engineer at the University of Virginia, and his colleagues are experts in protecting the body. Their lab is examining everything in football protective gear, head to toe. Better helmets have reduced concussions 35% in two years, but Kent says that is not enough.
