Concussion ManagementResearch & Development

The KONKUSSION Institute

Our team of clinicians and scientists at The KONKUSSION Institute are developing and testing innovative technology to revolutionize the management of concussions.

Our scientists have developed advanced imaging technology utilising Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) to aid in the diagnosis and management of concussions. Our prototype device is currently undergoing rigorous clinical testing and validation. Athletes part of the KONKUSSION program already have access to this cutting edge technology.

Our team of clinicians and scientists have collaborated from the disciplines of surgery, medicine, physics and biomedical engineering.

The KONKUSSION Institute has ongoing research and trials in the following areas:

  • The role of Near Infrared Spectroscopy in the diagnosis and management of concussions
  • The role of high dose fish oils, antioxidants and creatine in the management of concussions

Faculty from the KONKUSSION Institute are Alumni, Professors and Researchers from the following institutions:

DID YOU KNOW?'A second concussion before recovering from the first may lead to a 'Second-impact syndrome' which may result in permanent brain damage and death.'
