Pat Bishop comments on preventing concussions in hockey Winnipeg Free Press

Sunday, May 9, 2010

Retired Waterloo kinesiology professor, Patrick Bishop’s research to improve protective equipment, especially helmets and faceguards, has saved countless players from serious injury. However, he now suggests a new attitude is needed more than a new helmet.

"I really think this is a behaviour issue for which there needs to be a real attitude adjustment on the part of everyone involved... Helmets are very effective against head injury such as skull fractures, but they have very limited capability with respect to brain injury."
