UT Arlington In The News

Making sports safer

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Cindy Trowbridge, a UT Arlington kinesiology professor, was featured in a story by the NBC News program, Today, about new football helmet concussion sensors for youth athletes. “In particular, this young population has immature brains. They have smaller brains and bigger skulls, and so there’s more room for a brain that’s surrounded by fluid to knock around in that skull,” said Trowbridge, who is one of six certified athletic trainers chosen for a national safety pilot program from the MomsTEAM Institute, a leading youth health and safety think tank and watchdog group.
