The Kurt Caselli Foundation traveled to the East Coast for the first time to take part in the Ironman GNCC, in hopes of bringing new ideas to the Foundation and to bring awareness to the issue of concussion and mild traumatic brain injury. The study was funded entirely by the Kurt Caselli Foundation, but various volunteers from youth to females and even top professional athletes took part in the initiative. This would be the second set of intensive brain injury studies and it focused on collecting head acceleration data in hopes of gaining a better understanding of the forces that GNCC racers deal with during the grueling endurance races. The ultimate goal of the research is to offer the results to various helmet and protective gear manufacturers. Check out this video that was filmed at the Ironman GNCC to get a better explanation of the study and the Kurt Caselli Foundation.
