Alabama Football Lands Patent For Sideline Medical Tents


The Alabama football program has been an innovator for sideline medical attention.

This week, the Crimson Tide secured a patent for their sideline medical tents which have allowed trainers to attend to athletes immediately after they suffer an injury.

I think it has unbelievable potential,” Alabama sports medicine director Jeff Allen told AL.com. “Certainly, I knew it had potential within the sports world. But, now, to think where this could evolve to based on calls that we’ve gotten and interest that we’ve had from paramedic groups, EMS groups, the military, groups that we never envisioned getting interest from, I think there’s endless potential.”

Alabama first introduced the medical tents during the 2015 season.

It is currently believed that up to 70 high schools, colleges and NFL teams have adopted Alabama’s trend of using medical tents on the sidelines during games.
