Xtreme Performance Lab (XPL), which recently launched its neuro-physical based athlete training services, adds Injury Assessment and Recovery (IAR) via the NeuroPod PRO service delivery platform.
Using advanced brain mapping and analysis software, XPL technology is designed to compare an athlete’s brain activity against prior baseline measurements to look for signs of new brain trauma, concussions, and traumatic brain injury (TBI), as well as indicate its location and relative severity. This information can be shared with medical staff to target recovery protocols and improve treatment outcomes.
“XPL’s advanced brain mapping and qEEG technology is essential for baseline testing, accurate symptom identification, individualized treatment plans and quantifiable measurements regarding overall brain function,” states Michael Mark PsyD, JD, BCN, director of science and technology at Xtreme Performance Lab, in a media release.
“It provides us the ability to measure network dynamics that are simply ‘invisible’ to current diagnostic tools. We can now measure where the generators are in the brain that produce patterns that are significantly correlated with the severity of traumatic brain injury. This provides anatomical information about the regions in the brain that are deviant from baseline, enabling us to create recovery training protocols that target specific brain regions, symptoms and neural networks for improvement.”
The NeuroPod PRO features a patent-pending combination of biofeedback and neurofeedback techniques, combined with real-time, 3-dimensional brain monitoring and imaging software, engineered to deliver mental training and assessment services directly to athletes.
These services include a comprehensive Performance Capabilities Assessment (like a “combine for the mind”), mental performance ZONE training sessions, “Game Day” prep and recovery sessions, as well as the IAR protocols, the release continues.
“Whatever the reason, too many athletes are continuing to play with brain trauma. This is a significant cause of further injury,” states David A. Clarke, founder and CEO of Xtreme Performance Lab, based in Los Angeles.
“XPL’s next-generation technology greatly improves trauma assessments, leading to highly effective individualized recovery protocols. Athletes are now able to get back to optimal performance sooner and at much less risk of future injury.”
