McNeese State University football team will receive new smart helmets

(KPLC) - The McNeese State University football team will be receiving new "smart" helmets today.

The helmets donated by the Lake Charles Memorial Foundation, contain technology that will alert people on the sidelines to significant hits during practice or games.

That data can then be used to identify different training exercises that could be used to reduce head impacts.

The foundation also donated "smart helmets" to the Calcasieu Parish School Board.
