If people put half the effort into designing equipment to prevent concussions as they do trying to show that more and more athletes suffer them.....we'd be much better off.
I saw on Hockey Night in Canada a helmet design that used small cylinders of padding instead of flat padding in helmets. They cushioned the blow more and did not lose their form like normal padding does.
That's the first and last time I heard of any idea to modify the equipment to limit the number of concussions. Instead there are just more and more studies done to try to show how many concussions are suffered.
Great....we're able to identify that a player has suffered a concussion after a slight bump against the glass. What are we doing to prevent those minor concussions?
