INDYCAR Details Use of I-PAS™ As Part of Concussion Evaluation Protocol

Oct 18, 2018

The IndyCar Series has posted a video that details recent improvements they have made in the diagnosis of concussion following accidents. During the video, which is part of a series called “IndyCar 101,” former racer Jon Beekhuis talks about an incident where driver Will Power was falsely diagnosed with a concussion. This incident led to a re-examination of concussion protocol at that time. As a result, I-PAS™ is now used frequently within INDYCAR and testing on the device is part of preseason physicals for all drivers. Link
