The NFL, in association with Under Armour and General Electric awarded Dr. Gore, Co-Investigator with Emory University and Georgia Tech Research Team a $500,000 brain research grant in the Head Health Challenge II. Researchers and engineers from this research team developed a prototype medical device that can screen and assess concussions in near-real time. The portable device, known as iDETECT, can be used on the sidelines of sporting events. It consists of a headset and handheld device that rapidly assesses the player’s symptoms, including cognitive function, balance and eye movements. Dr. Gore is the Medical Director for Vestibular Neurology and Rehabilitation at SCI-Atlanta.
