Concussions and related head injuries are currently a major safety concern for athletes who have experienced CTE, or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. This progressive degenerative disease of the brain is often found in athletes (and others) with a history of repetitive brain trauma. This type of brain trauma has not only led to a record number of lawsuits, but has triggered a wave of newly developed baseline testing programs intended as proactive measures to prevent concussions not only at the college and pro levels, but in grades K-12 also.
