WHAT WE


LEARNED BY PAUL OHANIAN


The Center for Sport Science at US Lacrosse serves as a national hub for the study and improvement of health in lacrosse, and funds numerous research studies annually to learn more about the safety and wellness of lacrosse players. In 2016, the Center for Sport Science partially or fully funded six research studies, and produced a year-end report to summarize the fi ndings. Research areas included impact sensors, injury surveillance, lower extremity injury risk reduction, head impacts and playing time. Among fi ndings:


1


Impact sensors have high numbers of false positives and should be confi rmed via video.


2


Knee/lower leg injuries account for 16% of high school injuries among boys, 26% among girls.

6
