Clarence Center Teen’s Invention Could Change Contact Sports
A Clarence Center teen named Abby Bishara has an invention that could change the sports world entirely, and she's only 13 years old.
Abby is a soccer player. She's played the sport for what seems like forever to her and she's discovered that it's a dangerous sport to play. As a matter of fact, concussions happen for female soccer players at double the rate of male players.
So she has decided to do what she can to help prevent it. According to WKBW, she developed a sensor that can monitor when a hit to the head occurs, then it sends a signal to an app that can be read by a parent or a coach to show not only how hard the hit was, but also how many hits have been taken.
The invention is part of a project with ProjectCSGIRLS and she hopes one day to patent it and continue with computer coding.
