Northern Arizona football team to test drive 'concussion robot'

While not every school can afford to have a neurologist on the sideline, the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., might have found a way to provide easy access to such specialists during football games.

The Mayo Clinic on Friday will test a "concussion robot" at Northern Arizona University football games with a direct connection to a neurologist, the Arizona Daily Sun reported.

USA Today wrote about it as well, focusing on more details about the robot.

Vargas will be in Tucson for the game to make sure VGo's first voyage goes well. His partner in developing the robot is excited about the project.
