R2Play: A simulated sports environment to support return-to-play decision-making following youth concussion


The research team at Holland Bloorview is developing a simulated environment system to help youth with concussion return to their sport life (return-to-play). The system, R2Play,  will be designed using your thoughts and feedback. This study involves participating in a one hour online interview session.
