Football Head Injury Research needs major funding for crystal technology and researchers are appealing to philanthropists to provide these funds. The crystal technology is patented. The knowledge that would be developed from this research has far reaching advantages in many walks of life, such as helmets for bike riders and other sports. Hopefully the NFL will be involved with crystal technology despite biases. New football helmet designs will become passé in the future without this patented technology. The advantage to using the helmets with crystal technology will be the provision of measurable and quantitative data for athletes that take blows to the head during collision sports. What would be gained without it? Maybe the NFL can answer that question for the general public, its players and young athletes that trust the sports organization after consulting with its lawyers.
