Three Long Island (N.Y.) high schools have invested in football helmet sensor technology designed to record the force of impacts to the head.

Oyster Bay became the first on Long Island to use the technology for the 2015 season in an effort to protect its players from the risk of a concussion. Central Islip and Hewlett added the sensor technology this season.

Oyster Bay and Central Islip are using Riddell’s Insite system, which sends an alert to a handheld device whenever a hit to the helmet registers above a certain threshold of force. Riddell declined to specify what that threshold is.
