Concussion Research Opportunity for Middle School and High School ATs
The Spot Light RIO™ team is enrolling middle school and high school football teams to participate in the 2015-2016 Spot Light RIO™ Study. This study will test the effectiveness of an easy-to-use mobile app that assesses concussions on the sidelines and helps to manage an athlete’s return to play.
To be eligible, your team must have a designated reporter willing to report concussions during the 2015-2016 football season for middle school (ages 9-14 years) and/or high school football teams. The reporter is required to have an iOS mobile device such as an iPhone or iPad and will be compensated for their participation.
To enroll in the study, please take the 2015-2016 Spot Light RIO™ Enrollment Survey. If you have additional questions about this study, please contact the Spot Light RIO™ team via email at SpotLightRIO@NationwideChildrens.org or by phone at 614-355-5880.
