(7/30/19) A new study finds that items linked to traumatic brain injuries might be closer than you think.
A study from The Brain Injury Journal finds that roughly 72 percent of traumatic brain injury-related emergency room visits in kids are tied to common activities and consumer products, like floors, chairs and bicycles.
About 29 percent of activities that contribute to non-fatal brain trauma involve recreational activities with football, basketball and soccer all in the top ten.
Injuries tied to these activities are most common in those ages 5 to 19 but brain trauma isn’t just linked to athletic gear and activities.
Infants and toddlers are most at risk for head injuries tied to furniture and fixtures.
