Researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill have designed an application for smart phones that helps identify whether a person has suffered a concussion. The app is available through iTunes and the Android Market. Developed by UNC-Chapel Hill assistant professor Jason Mihalik and Gerry Gioia of Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC, the app is nominated for a national 'Appy' award by MediaPost.

The app is intended for coaches and parents. Here is some background information on the developers, Jason Mihalik and Gerry Gioia.
