23 Apr Heads UP – Episode 93: Q-Collar and the Prevention of TBI
Have you ever noticed how woodpeckers can peck away at hard surfaces all day and never get a concussion? This is the inspiration behind a device newly approved by the FDA for the prevention of mild traumatic brain injury. It is called the Q-Collar. In this week’s episode of Heads Up, Dr. Lindsay Weitzel discusses the Q-Collar with Dr. Tim Smith. Is it approved for athletes under the age of 18? Does it cause headaches? Will we need a prescription to get it? Drs. Weitzel and Smith cover all these questions.
