In recent years, brain health has become one of the most critical and talked about areas of sport research and innovation. Making sure that athletes’ brains are safe during play and remain healthy throughout their lives is crucial to look into. Research and innovation in this field is far reaching, but some of the topics include brain injuries, long term effects of different sports on the brain, and different types of equipment for different sports.
