Frequently
Asked
Questions

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Short Answer: We don’t know yet.

Long Answer: We know that you can’t get a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) from not moving and we know that you will have brain damage if you hit your head hard enough to cause bleeding, brain swelling, or even a skull fracture.

By themselves, cameras cannot detect a concussion. However, correlating impact location and magnitude data with behavioral data from sideline concussion evaluations performed after an injury could give us insight into what causes a concussion.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is the term used to describe brain degeneration likely caused by repeated head traumas. CTE is a diagnosis made only at autopsy by studying sections of the brain.

CTE is a rare disorder that is not yet well understood. CTE is not related to the immediate consequences of a late-life episode of head trauma. CTE has a complex relationship with head traumas such as persistent post-concussive symptoms and second impact syndrome that occur earlier in life.

We don’t know yet. At Alpha Fiber, we believe that it is likely a combination of the two, as well as the time before significant impacts.
