Sports medicine: Sway Medical’s app compares suspicious injury event tests against a pre-injury “normative” or baseline score

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.

Win Basketball Games By Unleashing Your True Potential

Over the past 2 decades studies to mimic Basketball Legend Michael Jordan’s ‘Natural Jumping Prowess’ has now become an Exact Science. However, marketing gurus and commission-greedy affiliates pollute the market with ineffective training programs.

The ability to do a really high vertical jump has always been one of the greatest advantages that few athletes truly enjoy in sports such as basketball, tennis, football and volleyball. Back in the day, how high one could jump was usually associated with the height of the athlete, which is only partially true. This is probably the main reason behind extremely tall athletes being favored in professional sports such as basketball, but this does not mean that shorter athletes do not stand a chance. Height will certainly affect how high you can reach, but it does not dictate how high your vertical explosion is.

This ability is innate in most athletes. Some discover it by accident, and are capable of astonishing feats, but aren’t really aware of how they do it. You could say this is natural talent. In others this ability lies dormant and needs to be ‘awakened’, and this is why we are here today.

A lot of athletes find themselves failing and giving up, and partly to blame in this is the media and false advertising. A lot of marketers and affiliates choose to promote products developed by coaches who simply aren’t experts, but are most profitable for them. Failure to deliver the results promised can lead to disheartenment on the part of dedicated athletes, thinking that they simply do not have what it takes. This ends here and now!

The guys at WinBasketball.com understand the dilemma from which far too many of the world’s devoted athletes now suffer, and have made it their mission-in-life to provide truthful, and scientifically proven methods to improve their overall competitiveness. It is of the utmost importance that athletes stay on top of their game, both physically and mentally. Wrongful marketing can not only harm the physical aspect of an athlete’s training, but can also have serious ramifications on morale, hampering an individual’s true potential, and destroying careers before they have had their chance to prove their worth!

This is why WinBasketball.com supports the men and women who have dedicated their lives to giving athletes a truly safe and effective chance to be competitive, absolutely no BS – backed by results and proven scientific methods!

B2G Sports Has Record Breaking Year With 40 Alumni Signing To Major Universities

B2G (Beyond 2000) is a premiere training program that is contracted directly by a number of BCS universities to scout college prospects. As one of the leading training programs in the country, it remains a pioneer of high school football’s invitation only camp format. Established over 10 years ago by co-founders Ron Allen and Henry Bell, the program is celebrating its most rewarding year yet with 40 of this session’s alumnus signing college scholarships on Feb 4, 16 of those being Pac 10 schools. In addition to the signings, over 200 alumni will be on major BCS rosters come fall 2010. B2G has also yielded 51 high school All-Americans, 11 alum currently on NFL rosters (i.e. Steve Smith-NY Giants, Dennis Dixon-Pittsburgh Steelers & Sean Smith-Miami Dolphins to name a few), and 5 more will also be in this upcoming draft, and11 more in the 2011 draft.

B2G Sports Has Record Breaking Year With 40 Alumni Signing To Major Universities

Allen and Bell, alumni of the University of California, Los Angeles and Purdue University, respectfully, used their long-standing friendship, camaraderie, and shared experiences as student-athletes, as the foundation to create a unique and highly effective training method; one that levels the playing field between high school and college skill sets and competition. “Too many highly recruited prep stars grow complacent from dominating their peers. Without facing like talent or players that are better then them, it’s difficult to find out what areas they need improvement in and that’s why top players are attracted to our program.” co-founder Ron Allen added.

With three active locations in Los Angeles, the Inland Empire and Ventura County, the program easily ushers through close to 100 youth & high school athletes during any given session. One of three programs they provide for student athletes is Instinct Training™. This 15-week program is open to any player willing and ready to reach their full potential. This specialized training focuses on quick, explosive movements. Footwork, agility, and competition are always incorporated, as they are needed to play at an optimal level.

B2G alum and participant of Instinct Training, DJ Morgan, a senior at Taft high school in Los Angeles, was one of the 40 alum from the class of 2010 that recently accepted a Division 1 scholarship, and he will be attending USC. His father attributes the accomplishment to the skills acquired through the program, “Because DJ is a gifted athlete,” explains his father Dale Morgan, “He hadn’t in his normal teen setting had to face a lot of challenges, or keep his level of focus really high on a daily basis, so going to B2G put him in an environment with guys that were as good as him; and in order for him to continue at that top level it provided him the motivation to put forth a superb effort at all times. The attention they (B2G) give to advance level techniques and the understanding that you really have to compete to stand out and be noticed is what helped DJ maintain a certain level of excellence.”

The next two events coming from B2G during the year is the Instinct Showcase during the month of May, & the B2G Elite Camp in June. The Instinct Showcase is a one-day event that gives student athletes an opportunity to be seen by various scouts and the media. The Showcases also give these athletes a chance to be invited to arguably the most prestigious camp in the country, The B2G Elite Camp. The B2G Elite Camp is an invitation only overnight camp that simulates the first week of college football, and consists of three days and three nights on a college campus with the nation’s top prospects. It also includes collegiate-styled schedules consisting of practice, meetings, and workshops, as well as featuring character building activities, aggressive training regiments & film study and much more. This is the longest running Elite Camp in the country and the success of the program has started a wave of new Invite Only camps across the country. Over the last 10 years, over 30% of the Elite Camp alum has started as a true freshman & 95% have graduated from college.

For more information on the program, schedules, locations and fees please visit www.b2gsports.com. For interviews please contact Octavia Bostick at 714-808-2840.

The Secrets of Shooting DVD is now available for purchase and is the perfect holiday present for basketball players and coaches alike

Developed by high school basketball coach Bob Fisher, The Secrets of Shooting covers hand placement, wrist action, correct ball release, and the four proven ways to shoot a basketball. It also teaches launch speed, launch angle and how to incorporate these aspects of shooting to perfect a basketball player’s shooter’s touch.

Coach Fisher dispels the notion that one size fits all and repetition is the key to becoming a better basketball shooter. His DVD is the result of years of careful research and incorporates a studied physics approach to aiding players in developing their shooter’s touch.

“I am convinced that different player body types require a different approach to shooting a basketball effectively,” said Fisher.

This is a one of a kind DVD that clearly explains and demonstrates the techniques players need to become better and more accurate shooters. It also includes basketball tips on shooting, dribbling and passing and is perfect for both player and coach of any age or competition level.

The Secrets of Shooting “I wanted to help kids succeed. Specifically helping them to learn how they can make shots,” said Fisher. “I believe that one size does not fit all when it comes to shooting a basketball.”

Fisher’s product was years in the making and included his own attempts as a high school basketball player and then later coach to help all of his players develop an accurate shooting touch.

It takes into account that body types have changed from the tall, thin ectomorph-type of body more commonly seen on the basketball court some 30 years ago.

Fisher believes that a player’s shot is similar to a puzzle with the goal of putting together all the pieces for the puzzle to make sense. For players, if one piece of the shooting puzzle is missing, it causes the player to become inconsistent. When all the pieces are in place, basketball players become consistent shooters and learn to wear out the net.

The Secrets of Shooting was produced by CVP Productions and features easy to follow narration, by 13 year old Jacob Hays of Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader fame, as well as the demonstration of each shooting style by the Fisher Sharp Shooters, a group of local high school basketball players.

It’s available online at secretsofshooting.com. Visitors to the website can also read testimonials from players and coaches, watch a short clip of the DVD and learn more about Coach Bob and the physics of shooting.
