"The performance lab is really a stage, if you will, for us to look at a variety of safety issues as it relates to sports," said Dr. Edward C. Benzel, who chairs the department of neurosurgery at the Cleveland Clinic. "Obviously, Rawlings and the clinic are interested in ways in which we can help them make better and safer equipment by using science to look at better helmet design in football and baseball, and other ways to minimize spinal and head injuries."
"I believe the awareness is increasing," Benzel said. "It's a cultural thing and I see that culture changing with the emphasis on this area. There certainly is a great emphasis in the coaching community; I can only speak to the comments I have heard with coaches, and I'm hearing it more than I have heard it before and do believe it is in the conversation everywhere in regards to techniques and the use of the helmet. I believe it will continue to evolve."
