Stanford Children’s Health is a healthcare network exclusively dedicated to pediatric and obstetric care.
Enrollment of high school-age participants has already begun in the multi-year study. It is anticipated that as many as 10 local high schools will participate during the course of the study.
“As part of the Stanford pediatric initiatives supported by the Taube’s generous grant, we have been fortunate to partner with SyncThink to incorporate their novel technology into our studies as we seek to better understand the neurological impairments in high school athletes in our local community,” says Stanford Neurosurgeon and Principal Investigator, Gerald Grant, MD, FACS, in a media release.
“We see eye tracking assessment as a key metric alongside other advanced technologies, which is also being implemented at all Pac-12 schools.”
The SyncThink technology is already in use in more than 30 research and clinical care settings across North America including Massachusetts General Hospital and Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. In addition, the Pac-12 conference, University of Texas, University of Georgia, and the Golden State Warriors have also acquired the technology to improve athlete monitoring and care.
“We are thrilled to partner with an esteemed researcher such as Dr Grant at a leading pediatric institution. Stanford clearly recognizes the importance of bringing objective measurement to brain health research to give high school athletes the best care possible,” notes Laura Yecies, CEO of Palo Alto, Calif-based SyncThink, in the release.
