VR Helping NFL Players

Football season is officially underway! So is the discussion surrounding concussions, and analytic methods to making the game safer for players.

Crosswater is an advocate for using eye tracking in VR to capture analytics and gain quantitative insights. New developments in Virtual Reality eye-tracking technology provide team doctors with fast and accurate measurements of brain health to give players a greater understanding of the risks associated with entering back into play too quickly after a head injury.

Hall of Fame San Francisco 49ers QB, Steve Young, whose career was cut short by a concussion, advocates for this new method, calling it “empowering” to players who can now make informed, game-time decisions regarding their brain health.
