There may be a new way to diagnose concussions, and it could be a game changer for the health of athletes and other people across the country.

The breakthrough is a machine that can analyze a small amount of blood to diagnose a concussion in minutes. Developers hope to have these tests ready as soon as next year. The report by ABC News below describes the research, which is supported by the National Football League’s Head Health Challenge.

Early concussion diagnosis is extremely important, as it can help prevent life-threatening conditions such as second-impact syndrome, which occurs when a person sustains another concussion before the first has completely gone away.

For decades, Anapol Weiss has successfully advocated for individuals suffering from traumatic brain injury, ranging from victims of faulty helmets to National Football League players.
