SyncThink has partnered with NeuroSport, a concussion management clinic founded by former NFL All-Pro running back Fred Willis, to supply its signature EYE-SYNC tool, the company announces.
The EYE-SYNC technology will be used to assist NeuroSport clinicians in evaluating visual impairments, monitoring recovery, supporting the rehabilitation of ocular-motor and ocular-vestibular deficits, and in the optimization of brain performance.
NeuroSport has a mission to reduce the long-term impacts of brain injuries on athletes and promote the awareness and education of prevention and management among athletes, parents, coaches, athletic trainers, other medical professionals, and schools nationwide.
This premier NeuroSport specialty clinic will utilize EYE-SYNC as one of its integrated baseline protocols to assess, rehabilitate, and address performance metrics in brain health for athletes of all ages and levels of play, the release explains.
“NeuroSport intends to achieve its objectives by building and disseminating knowledge about concussion and partnering with youth sports and high school athletic programs to strengthen communities by integrating protection from concussion into the fabric of community life. We are excited to onboard groundbreaking technologies, like EYE-SYNC from SyncThink in the brain health space,”Willis says.
“The NeuroSport Concussion Foundation is actively involved in leading scientific research to better understand concussions in young people. Our mission is to develop better approaches to assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and return to play, and EYE-SYNC is a piece of that puzzle.”
“Management and prevention of head injury, as well as the potential long-term consequences, is of tremendous importance to athletes at all levels. Given his expertise and leadership in the field, we are thrilled to partner with Fred Willis, Chief Medical Director Daniel Kantor, MD, FAAN, FANA, and the team at NeuroSport Concussion in their cutting-edge work,” adds SyncThink CEO Laura Yecies, in the release.
