Concussion platform returns to the Overground, tech transfer podcast to take holiday breaks


OMAHA, Neb. (November 19, 2018)—UNeMed’s tech transfer podcast, “Innovation Overground,” is taking a one-week hiatus for the holiday, and are re-broadcasting a popular episode relevant for the season: How biomechanics can save football.

In the episode, Overground hosts Joe Runge, Tyler Scherr and Charlie Litton, discuss a new concussion detection platform that began at the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s biomechanics program. The crew also talk about how good ideas become great inventions through better collaborations.

The episode featured the startup company Avert.

New episodes will return Monday, Nov. 26. The Overground is also planning a two-week break during the Christmas holiday season, and will re-air previous episodes on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31. New episodes will again resume on Monday, Jan. 7, 2019.

Innovation Overground was created to help promote academic innovation and the technology transfer and commercialization efforts at the University of Nebraska and beyond. The podcast intends to examine what it takes to advance academic inventions and discoveries beyond the research bench and into people’s lives as “actual things on a shelf.”

New episodes are published on Mondays, and are available on most podcast channels, including Google Play Music, iTunes, iHeartMusic, Podomatic, Spotify and Spreaker.
