Heading Out Today for Impromptu IFS Review of New VICIS Football Helmet

Screen-Shot-2016-01-11-at-9.43.19-AMA unique opportunity presented itself last week.  Today the SMC IFS team is heading out to visit with the athletic training staff of the Buffalo Bills to conduct a review of the new VICIS football helmet that is all the talk of the town.  Unlike other reviews, the IFS segment will look solely at how the VICIS responds during traditional on-field emergency response protocols.   As this was not on our IFS schedule, we will sneak this review in and push the regularly scheduled review of the Combo-Tool Approach back a week.
