    Now if only there was a device for helping to detect the right section of the board to post this in!

    Just giving you a hard time, btw.

    They should probably get that device to high schools immediately.

    If they fall off the board, I think that is also an indicator

    Seems like a nice simple screening device. The problem I see with relying on it is that concussion symptoms, including the effects on balance, in a significant percent of persons do not present for hours after a suspected event. Still sounds like a helpful tool to assess one common symptom of concussion.
