The G-Force data from mouth guard sensors can tell us about what happens to different structures of the brain during impact and the transmission of shock from the impact through the corpus callosum. The impact of a single hit is comparable to hitting a wall in a car at 30 miles per hour. For the average player in a football game this may occur as many as 62 times.
