USA Bobsled and Skeleton (USABS) has announced a new partnership with TeachAids to help provide concussion education.

TeachAids are an award-winning non-profit social enterprise, who developed the CrashCourse concussion education technology.

CrashCourse is a suite of interactive products focussed on the prevention and treatment of concussions and related mental health issues.

Their products are aimed at helping to teach athletes, parents and coaches about concussions, using the most up-to-date scientific knowledge.

The education technology aims to help to dispel myths and misconceptions about the concussion recovery process.

The technology is also aimed at being a resource for trainers, rehab specialists and physicians.

"Ensuring the best physical and mental health for our athletes is our top priority," said Aron McGuire, USABS chief executive officer.

"We have been impressed with the research-driven model by the TeachAids Team and are proud to integrate their CrashCourse concussion education into our product offerings."

USABS revealed it will include the CrashCourse content on its website to educate athletes currently competing in the sport, as well as athletes interested in trying out for the sports to help promote positive health and safety of an athletes career from day one through to retirement.

"We are honoured to work with USA Bobsled/Skeleton to help further the understanding of concussions for the athlete and coaching community," Dr. Piya Sorcar, Founder and chief executive of TeachAids, said.

"Our greatest hope is that this CrashCourse concussion education will serve as a complement to existing educational materials to help make this incredibly exciting sport safer for all."

TeachAids works with world-class academics, researchers, doctors, and athletes to help produce products to solve persistent problems in health education.

Stanford University and Harvard University are among the institutions TeachAids has collaborated with.
