About this class

Posts on Newsactivist will be used to help you connect with the students from Champlain College in Canada. Your goal is to inform them about the nature of social enterprises and how business models can be used to address social problems. You will connect with the students to identify a social idea they have highlighted and generate a business model specified for that problem.

Concussions is a big issue in sports, every now and then, we hear someone suffering from a concussion. There is a need to find the solution for this, it is important to prevent concussions because if this goes on parents will be afraid of sending their children to the field, which will discourage athletes.

Although full contact is dangerous, it is up to the athletes how to play and what to do on the ice/field. As serious as concussions are, I bet 99 out of 100 guys would refuse to take the contact element out of the game they know and love. Players will often say, if you can't take the hit, stay on the sideline as a spectator. It is not easy to avoid these hits, and won't get any easier in the future. Instead of try to eliminate a part of the game that has been around for hundreds of years, instead just try to reduce the risk. For example, use high-tech equipment for the head, to monitor impact. This way team doctors can decide whether it is safe or not for a specific player. In my opinion, it will save time on rule changes and effort convincing veteran athletes, while still promoting safety. It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks, especially if it means telling 250-pound athletes to play nice.

I agree with Olaberge because not only professional athletes face the risk of head injury. Student athletes and kids are also at great risk in full contact sports. Especially young kids because their brains are not always fully developed yet, which could mean damage to the brain that one cannot come back from. Our product, the SmartHelmet will reduce injuries, by monitoring collisions of athletes. Starting with the professionals, and college athletes, and kids will soon follow these safety precautions.
