In a previous article we discussed, at some length, the results of a variety of studies that show female athletes are at different risks than men because their bodies are different.
It is now shown that women, while playing basketball, may face risks that their male counterparts do not. This is considered to be further evidence that female athletes have to be concerned in ways that the men do not, and that when considering manufacture of sports safety equipment, manufacturers would be well served to consider the biological makeup of the athlete they are protecting. Even when it comes to headgear.
In short, anyone involved in athletics needs to understand their body, and the risks associated with their sport.
