When more than 900 Omaha Public Schools football players hit the gridiron this fall, they’ll have a new piece of equipment: a high-tech helmet that officials hope will be another line of defense in the battle against head injuries. Every OPS high school player — from freshmen to varsity starters — will be outfitted with new Riddell Speedflex helmets that could help coaches and athletic trainers monitor the severity of the hits suffered by student-athletes.

The fall of one size fits all

I'm sitting on a stool in the middle of an office, wearing a football helmet shell while a guy is pointing a gadget at me that looks a bit like an iPad with handles. "Keep looking straight ahead," he says as he circles around me, waving the gadget like a magic wand. "Try not to move too much." After about 30 seconds of this, I remove the helmet and replace it with a thick, uncomfortable hood, sort of like an industrial-strength ski mask, and the whole process repeats, with the guy once again circling around me with his gadget. The guy is Patrick Friel, a product manager for the football helmet manufacturer Riddell. The gadget -- one of only nine currently in existence -- is a scanner, and Friel is using it to create 3-D images of my head. After the second round of scans, we look at some digital images of me that the scanner captured.
