Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Injured Athletes
Athletes tested for mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) after injury using the I-PAS goggles
Device: I-PAS Goggles
Portable, head-mounted display goggle system with integrated eye capture technology

Active Comparator: Non-Injured Athletes
Athletes tested for mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) with no injury using the I-PAS goggles
Device: I-PAS Goggles
Portable, head-mounted display goggle system with integrated eye capture technology




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with mTBI [ Time Frame: 45 months ]
    How many participants were detected to have mTBI following a sports-related injury


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to recover [ Time Frame: 45 months ]
    Measuring the time (days) it takes for readiness to return to sports activity after sports-related injury for participants with a detected mTBI
