Concussion Prevention App Launched For Blackberry Smartphones, Hockey Canada Promotes Safety

Concussions can be a big problem, especially in a sport like hockey. Hockey Canada has made an app aimed to help prevent concussions but also help when you do get one.

Hockey Canada had to say:

“You can have your phone on the bench — it’s that close,” said Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson. “It’s right in the (coach or trainer’s) hands.”

It is made clear that they want everyone to know about the app:

“There are two different targets here,” he said. “We’re hopeful that coaches will have it on the bench and players will watch it in dressing rooms. With that, we’re really trying to make sure that we get to everyone involved in the game in Canada.”
