Latest Prevent Biometrics News

World Rugby co-authors head impact study using data from Prevent Biometrics

Nov 6, 2023

11.6.2023 World Rugby co-authored the largest study into head impact forces in community rugby, using data collected from Prevent Biometrics’ instrumented mouthguards. The research encompassed 328 New Zealand male rugby players between the ages of 10 and 30 and found that 94% of all head accelerations registered no higher than 20g of force, which is the upper end of what’s commonly experienced when jumping on a trampoline. Only 2% of all impacts were greater than 30g, which was identified as a threshold for higher risk of brain injuries such as a concussion. Many of those elevated accelerations were attributed to poor technique. The Sports Medicine journal published the full paper, which was researched by the Otago Community Head Impact Detection study (ORCHID) — a joint project between World Rugby, New Zealand Rugby, Otago Rugby, the University of Otago and Prevent Biometrics. World Rugby and Prevent Biometrics have been collaborators for years, with a recent announcement that all elite players would be required to wear the sensor-laden mouthguards beginning in 2024. Among the other conclusions from the paper were that training accounted for a larger share of total impacts among the younger players, matches had higher impact magnitudes than training at all levels and the Under-19 age group had the highest incident of accelerations above 30g while the Under-13 group had the lowest rate.
