With the Protxx wearable sensor and data platform, real-time athlete biometrics that enable early intervention, safer play, reduced injury incidence and severity, improved recovery outcomes, and higher levels of performance are now available during every game and practice.
Unreliable identification of concussions puts athletes at significant risk
No assessment of sub-concussive head impact injuries, or related orthopedic injuries
Athletes are only removed from play when symptoms are so severe that injury is immediately obvious
Neurological and orthopedic trauma are allowed to build up over time, leading to long-term degenerative effects
Growing awareness of long-term brain injury risks is driving up medical and legal costs in sports
Declining participation is threatening the viability of many youth, collegiate, and professional sports.
Real-time monitoring of cumulative impact exposure enables more comprehensive "flag-for-assessment" protocols
Neurological and orthopedic fitness snapshot through precision balance testing
Real-time data empowers early intervention and targeted treatment
Analysis of injury severity and progression ensures athletes don't return to play until it is safe
Monitoring onset and progression of impact-induced changes in neural, vestibular, and musculoskeletal physiology.
Unlike neurocognitive testing tools that diagnose symptom severity after a concussion has already occurred, or concussion sensors in helmets and mouth guards that are plagued by helmet motion problems and mouthguard chewing damage, the dual-function Protxx head-mounted sensor provides actionable real-time data in a form factor suitable for athletes of any age or skill level and in any sport.
The Protxx sensor functions as a very sensitive "seismometer for the brain", and it has two functions. As a head impact dosimeter, it warns when cumulative impact exposures approach levels that could lead to permanent damage. As a precision balance monitor, it quantifies the severity and duration of balance impairments that result from impact-induced changes in neurovestibular and musculoskeletal physiology.
Protxx Team app
The Protxx mobile app, coupled with a powerful data analytics engine, helps monitor athlete performance and track the onset and progression of changes to both neurovestibular and musculoskeletal physiology triggered by impact exposure.
The Protxx Team app integrates impact monitoring and balance testing, and allows athletic trainers and sports medicine professionals to monitor and test an entire sensor-equipped team in parallel. These quick and thorough daily assessments allow cumulative impact exposure to be limited and athletes at risk to be proactively identified, flagged for evaluation, triaged, and referred to the appropriate healthcare provider for any required further assessments and treatment.
Protxx Clinic app
The Protxx Clinic app is designed to enhance coordination with and support from clinical specialists and rehabilitation professionals when an athlete requires follow-up balance assessments during treatment or recovery, providing a powerful new tool to help improve rehabilitation outcomes when injuries do occur.
The Protxx solution is universally applicable to any athletic, military, or industrial environment, and is leveraging support from the growing number of healthcare insurers who are reimbursing wearables for their members.
