sway-medicals-app-compares-suspicious-injury-event-tests_epr_sports_news

TULSA, OK, 08-Sep-2016 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — Sway Medical LLC (Sway) would like to announce its official availability in all European Union Countries. Sway was issued its CE Mark after being marketed in the United States and Canada for two years. This is significant because European sports organizations ranging from youth through pro level now have an affordable and convenient sideline assessment tool supporting concussion related medical decision making. Medical professionals and trained coaches can obtain a concussion assessment via an Apple mobile device (iPhone or iPad) and the Sway Balance™ System web-portal. Acute objective measurements are obtained by performing a 1.5 minute balance and reaction time test protocol. Licensed athletic trainers, physical therapists and athletic therapists are able to join physicians in acutely managing the underserved market of youth sports, ages six and older.

Concussion injuries are very common in sports, often going un-reported or ignored until the obvious symptoms have incapacitated the athlete or draws the attention of a parent or coach. Second Impact Syndrome (SIS) is a serious medical condition with published mortality rates of up to 50%. SIS occurs when an athlete returns to play while still recovering from an initial concussion injury. During this time, the brain is highly susceptible to additional injury and complications. The Sway Balance™ System is able to accurately assess and track the acute and chronic outcome related to an athlete’s balance, motion reaction time and concussion symptoms. The Sway Balance™ System provides a graphical representation comparing suspicious injury event tests against a pre-injury “normative” or baseline score. The comparison of event tests against an established baseline is a common measurement for traumatic brain injury diagnosis and recovery tracking.

The Sway Balance™ System is available for purchase by licensed medical professionals involved in school, occupational or sports medicine through www.swaymedical.com. Additional protocols are available to assess an individual’s “Fall Risk” or “Functional Status”.

Sway is very excited to introduce this technology to the European Union. The product’s utilization in sports alone will reduce the unintentional misdiagnosis often made when relying on subjective testing protocols such as BESS & SCAT. Rapidly obtained objective data improves outcomes and medical decision making when assessing acute concussion injury, whether in the clinic or on the playing field. The Sway Balance™ System offers referral physicians immediate, remote access to test results once a test is performed. Baseline and event testing is performed via a free app downloaded to any Apple mobile device by a licensed user. Sway invoices an annual fee, which allows the organization to perform unlimited testing for a 12 month license period. The average annual cost per althlete is less than $4.50 USD, while a system user may be added for additional $50.00 annually.

Reflex Nutrition Has Announced That Amateur Boxer Jake Towse Is The Latest Member Of It Sponsorship Scheme, Which Supports Talented Athletes F r o m A Number Of Sports

Jake, who has only been boxing since 2006, is being tipped by pundits as having a huge future in boxing. A member of Hastings West Hill Boxing Club, Towse is already a multi Southern Counties champion and has also enjoyed a year’s placement at the prestigious Hopwood Hall boxing Academy near Manchester. He now shares his time between his studies at Hastings College of Further Education and training. Jake’s goal is to become the first Senior Amateur Boxing Association champion the south coast club has produced in their 70 year history and ultimately force his way into the Great Britain Squad to compete at the Olympics.

Julian Wright, spokesperson for Reflex Nutrition commented: “Jake Towse approached us in a very professional manner with a very clear focus on his short term goal, which is to win gold in the 2012 Olympics.”

Speaking on the Reflex Nutrition sponsorship scheme Julian said: “We select people to provide us with a broad coverage across a diverse range of sports. So f r o m a strategic perspective, we will often support people where there is a necessary fit with a particular sport. We also favour people who reflect the Reflex brand values, with many of our high profile sports people combining unquestionable talent and success in their chosen field with modesty and complete professionalism.

“Jake not only presented himself particularly professionally but I felt very comfortable with how he talked about what he wanted to achieve and how he wanted to achieve it.”

Jake is presently enjoying a month’s complete rest and recuperation after a busy season that saw him box 14 times. He narrowly missed out on 3 potential national titles, one of which was the ABA Senior Novice championship. During this competition he beat a 25 year Royal Marine combined services champion – no small feat for a 17 year old.
