Suffered a concussion? You might be able to help with a medical study

posted in: Club noticeboard, News

Male footballers who have suffered a concussion within the past 14 days are invited to take part in a research study being conducted by AUT University.

The researchers are looking for males aged 16-35 who have suffered a concussion during a sports even within the past 14 days.

In return for their help, participants will receive $70 of vouchers, and a free MRI (a scan that will produce a detailed image of the brain).

As well as having the MRI, participants will also need to provide small saliva samples and wear a special watch (like a Fitbit) during the study period.

The research project has been approached by AUT’s Health and Disciplinary Ethics Committee.
