Interesting Study from the Ice Hockey world

"The study analyzed 528 recorded injuries from 2006 to 2013 that occurred in all divisions of the men’s World Championship program, the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and the qualification tournaments for the Vancouver 2010 and the Sochi 2014 Games. 

Among the notable findings made by the study was that the number of injuries sustained during international ice hockey competitions is relatively high, but that certain arena characteristics, such as flexible boards and glass, appeared to reduce the risk of injury. "

We like this with flexible boards and glass... This seems to be a very good study - but why are players with concussion symptoms back in the same game at an 11% rate? - odd hmm.

Could someone now tell us how Floorball would have looked like with fully fixed boards and nets bolted to the floor?
Just think about it for a while..
No no no we do not say that Ice Hockey has nets bolted to the Floor - but the rink or board systems used are often rather unforgiving compared to Floorball 
and a whee bit more expensive too ;-D

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
