I was listening to a piece on radio where rugby is introducing gumshields with sensors measuring shock, impact etc, only a matter of time before they are adapted for use in footy, has to be a move in the right direction in my view. Data has to drive decision making in the future

there was an interesting study years ago on gumshields and what they actually do with regards to concussions. annoyingly i can't find it but the outcomes weren't as supportive of them in terms of stopping/slowing the symptoms.

would be interesting to see the data on this however, although with all things data you can use sample sizes to prove one thing and another sample to prove something else.
