Mouth guards are often the last line of defense in preventing a concussion after a heavy impact in sports, and so Prevent Biometrics is working to make that final piece of protection more effective. The company's smart mouth guard has sensors built into it to let it detect when an impact might have been strong enough to lead to a concussion, thus giving coaches and team doctors a better opportunity to prevent extra impacts and damage.

Prevent Biometrics' mouth guard contains a flexible chip that can precisely sense and gather information. It can identify the direction, force, and location of an impact, for example. The mouth guard connects wirelessly to an app and transfers this information in real time for an immediate reaction from trainers or caregivers.
