And hopefully one that in the future will not only be taken more seriously in ice hockey becomes.
If you break your leg or arm, you can see that. It's different with concussion. Sure, as an athlete you always want to play. Today, however, awareness is higher and this is also specified by the clubs.

Then you already have a result. Certain parameters are used as a basis.
The test app for concussions
“The app is not a diagnostic app. Aim is that a doctor at least knows that there could be something, “says Dr. Axel Gänsslen, the campaign “Protect your head!” initiated. As a team doctor at Grizzlys Wolfsburg, he naturally knows what is important in ice hockey. And now the app is presented live. Natalie Kühn is the test object.
What does the insurance company say?
Natalie Kühn from the statutory accident insurance (VBG) names interesting ones Numbers. On average, every player from the four major leagues (football, ice hockey, handball, basketball) is injured two and a half times per season. The risk is significantly higher for athletes with previous illnesses.
In the past, students were simply taken out of the class and athletes from training , Today, people are trying to reintegrate those affected more quickly, says Vajkoczy. Jörg von Ameln, DEL game manager, talks about his experiences. A few years ago, you would not have known exactly how to deal with it. Much more is being done today, and neurological testing is carried out in advance of a season. The disciplinary system has also changed. “The penalties have been significantly tightened. We also talked to the players about this and the new generation has also increased mutual respect. But: There will still be injuries of this kind.”
Concussion: “Not a nice thing”
Now André Rankel speaks. “I also had a concussion. It is important that you have people afterwards who tell you to take three steps less.” Officially, however, only cases are reported after which there have been neurological findings. The number of unreported cases is therefore much higher. Prof. Dr. Peter Vajkoczy speaks of the fact that in ice hockey “after 1000 athletes' lessons give an average of two concussions . That's an astonishingly high number. “
Protect your head!
An increasingly important topic in sport and that's what it's about here , Sven Felski starts and tells that before 20 Years was completely different: “You took a tablet and after three days you had to go again.” Today there is much greater awareness of concussions. “The smallest symptoms have to be recognized and medical treatment is necessary immediately after a critical situation.”
Welli goes on today
Concussions are a big topic, especially in ice hockey , There is something new today, more precisely a new app that should make it easier to diagnose head injuries. And that will be presented in the old Vip room of the Corrugated Iron Palace.
What the polar bear trainer says before the DEG game
Great support today for the polar bear training in the Corrugated Iron Palace.
DEG in top form
After victories in Mannheim and Munich, the chest is wide with the coming one Polar Bear opponents. Perhaps that's why, from a Berlin perspective, it wouldn't be so bad to avoid Düsseldorf in the quarter-finals. A win on Friday would be very helpful, because it could keep the chances for third place alive and DEG also runs the risk of still being swallowed from behind. If a polar bear is defeated, a quarter-final duel between Berlin and Düsseldorf is very likely. It would then only be possible to play the home advantage in the remaining games.
Thriller in Cologne! We're going to WOB!
Is there today the 18. Defeat in a row, or does Uwe manage the curve? More from 19. 30 clock on Magenta Sports. From a Berlin perspective, the game – apart from the big Uwe – is not entirely unimportant. Because: Cologne continues like this, then Wolfsburg 76 points and comes 5th and closer to the quarterfinals against the polar bears and the Wolfsburg players will play again on Thursday – then in Schwenningen and then they could play DEG, Friday Losers in Berlin, almost catching up.
In the office they are already singing with us: “We're going to Wolfsburg! Jupeidi, jupeida.” And the “When the ICE stops” joke is already making the rounds. I brake my colleagues and say: people, first of all the Uwe is in front of it.
And this is coming:
