New Orleans Saints tight end Coby Fleener joins the Athletic Advisory Board for SyncThink, creator of the FDA-cleared eye-tracking and brain health analytics platform EYE-SYNC.
As part of the board, Fleener will contribute to the continued SyncThink mission of bringing an objective brain health solution to the sidelines with EYE-SYNC, notes a media release from SyncThink.
Fleener, a player for Stanford University now the New Orleans Saints, has been part of the NFL since 2012. Throughout his football career, he has seen players struggle with concussion-related injuries.
His belief in the EYE-SYNC technology as a solution brought him to the board position, the release states.
“I am excited to work with SyncThink because I know firsthand the challenges they are facing and working to solve. The lack of objective measurement for concussions can be frustrating for us athletes, as well as the medical staff trying to keep them healthy,” says Fleener, in the release.
“SyncThink’s solution, EYE-SYNC, uses tested technology and proven methods, and is a tool that should be available to athletes at every level. Objective data provided by the EYE-SYNC platform can go a long way in helping athletes, coaches, and medical staff members make the right return-to-play decisions,” he adds.
“Having known and worked with Coby for almost a decade, I know him to be much more than a star football player,” SyncThink’s Chief Customer Officer Scott Anderson states. “I believe this union is the result of a shared vision in which the sidelines and clinics of the future are properly equipped with objective testing measures like ours everywhere you look.”
