With the protxx wearable sensor platform, real-time athlete biometrics that lead to early intervention, safer play, reduced injury incidence and severity, and higher levels of performance are now available right on the field.
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 viability of many youth and collegiate 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, visual, 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.
The Protxx mobile app, coupled with a powerful analytics engine, allows sports professionals on the ground to implement more comprehensive “flag-for-assessment” and return-to-activity protocols, significantly reducing the risks of neurological and orthopedic damage, and enhancing recovery from those injuries that do occur.
Leveraging support from the growing number of healthcare insurers who are reimbursing wearables for their members, the Protxx app monitors the onset and progression of changes to both neurovestibular and musculoskeletal physiology triggered by impact exposure, and automates referrals to the appropriate healthcare provider for any required follow-up assessments.
