Table 4. Impacts to the head greater than 10g in youth Australian Football players by magnitude groups and impact location for head impact telemetry severity profile and risk weighted exposure combined (linear and rotational) probability for number of impacts recorded, impact duration and impact magnitude. Data are presented as mean (± standard deviation) and median [25th to 75th interquartile range].
