FOX 4: Coppell High School invests in high-tech mouthguards for football players

New technology may be able to help coaches keep North Texas high school football players safer when it comes to head injuries. Our sports medicine expert, Dr. Shane Miller weighed in on the topic with FOX 4 News.

He says there is still a lot to learn about using sensor technology in high-tech mouthguards to monitor players, but believes it is a step in the right direction.

“I don't want parents to have a false sense of security,” he said. “This is not a concussion detection device. You still need to rely on trainers and medical personnel to help identify this. But the technology does have the potential to impact player safety if used correctly.”
