Head impact exposure in popular contact sports is not well understood, especially in the youth population, despite recent advances in impact-sensing technology which has allowed widespread collection of real-time head impact data. Head kinematics have been measured in previous studies using instrumented helmets, skin patches, skull caps, and instrumented mouthpieces. A limitation of instrumented helmets is that they cannot be used in contact sports where the athletes do not wear helmets, such as soccer and women's lacrosse...
