Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic Concussion Center believe they have the perfect tool for studying and possibly preventing concussions in athletes.

The “Intelligent Mouthguard” features a number of embedded sensors that can measure the magnitude, location and direction/orientation of impacts to the head. 

A page on the Cleveland Clinic’s website notes that the mouthguard was shaped by the design team’s early recognition that placement of impact sensors in a mouthpiece — as opposed to a helmet, skullcap, skin patch or other head gear — is the optimal way to achieve precision in head impact measurement, ensuring that sensor movement is reliably coupled with actual head movement.
