SyncThink announces its partnership with the sports medicine department at the Georgia Tech Athletic Association.
Medical staff among Georgia Tech’s 19 athletic programs, both on the field and in sports medicine facilities, will employ SyncThin’s EYE-SYNC eye tracking technology as part of its institutional concussion management protocol to support the medical care and proactive monitoring of student athletes.
“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to work with Scott Anderson and his team with EYE-SYNC, but even more excited about the opportunity to improve our student-athlete outcomes as it relates to understanding the complexities of mTBI care,” says Georgia Tech Associate Director of Sports Medicine Carla Gilson, in a media release.
“Having a more objective means to assessment may offer a clearer path to recovery and healing for our student-athletes and sports medicine staff.”
The SyncThink platform incorporates a multi-modal assessment inventory featuring the FDA-cleared EYE-SYNC technology, which uses a modified virtual reality goggle to objectively measure and detect visual impairments in less than a minute. The technology was developed through extensive research over a 10-year period by Stanford neurosurgeon Dr Jamshid Ghajar, per the release.
SyncThink CCO Scott Anderson worked closely with the Georgia Tech sports medicine department staff to incorporate the technology into their program in numerous ways.
“As we continue to gain traction in the sports and medical arenas, many are realizing the added value of our technology and the critical importance of objective measurements,” he states.
“Georgia Tech is the latest example of a department that is always looking to advance the way they care for their student athletes, and by offering our technology the medical staff takes another stride to demonstrate their commitment to cutting-edge care.”
