A novel soccer headgear design to reduce concussion risk in head-to-head collisions
In a concussion research project, Minhong Kim — the founder of Concussions in Youth Soccer — utilizes finite element analysis to design and evaluate a headgear design to reduce concussion risk in soccer. This project was accepted as a poster presentation to the 10th Annual Concussion Research Symposium. It also passed extended abstract screening to the Samsung Humantech Paper Award.
Predicting Post-Concussion Syndrome Outcomes With Machine Learning
In a concussion research project, Minhong Kim — the founder of Concussions in Youth Soccer — utilizes machine learning models to predict outcomes for patients with persistent post-concussion syndrome. This project received a silver medal from the Korea Science & Engineering Fair International, ranking #19th. It was also published as a pre-print to arXiv (an open-access research paper repository).
In a series of research articles, Minhong Kim — the founder of Concussions in Youth Soccer — examines the issue of concussions within youth, collegiate, and professional sports. These articles are published in Concussion Alliance, a concussion education and advocacy nonprofit organization.
