Over half a million Canadian youth are registered in ice hockey leagues, and 10-20% of them get a concussion each year. The long-term effects of concussion and the best way to treat it are still unknown, especially in youth.

Traumatic brain injuries mainly afflict young healthy people and are a major public health issue. Damage extent is sometimes so important that victims who initially survive end up living with severe sequelae and significantly altered quality of life.
