1. Michalik, Maegan Renae. Effects of soccer headgear on cognitive function immediately following heading.

Degree: 2012, James Madison University

Concussion awareness and knowledge has increased and, as a consequence, protective equipment has been developed in an attempt to protect the athletes from sustaining a concussion. The manufacturers market the equipment as a tool to prevent concussions, yet few studies have systematically tested this hypothesis. This study investigated the Full90 Headgear to determine if performance on the Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 2 (SCAT 2) is impacted by the presence of headgear. Subjects performed two trials, each consisting of four different heading drills both with and without the Full90 Headgear. Subjects were evaluated prior to the heading drills with the SCAT 2 concussion assessment and immediately following each trial to determine if cognitive function, concussion symptoms, or balance performance changed with heading, and if the Full90 Headgear attenuated any of these changes. There were no changes in cognitive function, symptoms or balance performance from baseline to either of the post heading testing points. Therefore, the data indicated that purposeful heading does not change cognitive function; consequently there is no need for the Full90 Headgear to protect the athlete from a concussion during heading. In conclusion, the SCAT 2 scores did not change from baseline in either trial (with or without headgear). As supported by others, purposeful soccer heading is not a mechanism for concussion and consequently the Full90 Headgear does not add extra protection to an athlete during heading.

2. Posey, Ryan. Soccer Headgear Effects on Impact Profiles During a Heading Scenario.

Degree: MS, Bioengineering, 2006, Clemson University

The risk of head injuries in the sport of soccer has recently become a topic of concern, particularly with youth players whom may suffer long-lasting or even permanent effects from a severe head injury. In response to these worries, headguards have been developed specifically for use in soccer. These headguards have been studied using crash test dummy heads mounted with various electronic instruments - accelerometers, gyroscopes, etc. The headgear-mounted dummy heads have been struck with various objects (soccer ball, another dummy head, pole, etc) to test for changes in head acceleration response. Testing of soccer headgear has previously been limited to dummy head models. The current study was designed to complement the dummy head tests by using soccer players to conduct testing in game-like scenarios. Players were fitted with a soccer headguard (brand: Full90 Performance Headguard) and asked to head soccer balls. To measure the effectiveness of the headguard, it was wrapped in pressure-sensitive film. After heading, the film could be removed and scanned into a computer for image analysis. The changes in pressure recorded by the film would reveal the effectiveness of the headgear during these heading scenarios. Advisors/Committee Members: Benson, Lisa.
