Concussion is becoming increasingly common in motorsport, where concussed competitors may remain in control of a potentially-lethal vehicle.
SMMC are pleased to be supporting the RESCUE-RACER study, which investigates concussed motorsports participants by assessing symptoms, tests of vision, thinking/memory and brain imaging, as well as analysis of saliva. The long-term results of the research will be used to predict the recovery rate from concussion, to create guidelines for return to race decisions and to translate findings to general road use and sport.
Our Motorsport Rescue Crews and medics will be giving information about this study to any competitors aged 16 and above who have been involved in a motorsport incident with the potential for concussion.
