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.

Fruitful Technologies Launches Free Mobile Cricket Game, Tappy Cricket

Melbourne, Australia and Hanoi, Vietnam, November 20, 2014 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — Fruitful Technologies, a mobile development firm has just announced the official launch of its first mobile game, Tappy Cricket.

Tappy Cricket is a fun take on the popular sport of Cricket and is aimed primarily at the casual gamer. Gameplay involves tapping on the screen to keep Tappy the ball away from obstacles in typical social cricket settings, including the alleyway, beach and backyard. Runs are scored as the player progresses through the world and statistics kept that mirror the more formal game of cricket.

Tappy Cricket features both single player and multiplayer modes. In single player mode, players vie for the highest number of runs in the game’s international leaderboard. In multiplayer mode, players can challenge family and friends to a variety of Cricket matches such as Twenty 20, One Day International and Test Matches.

Other special features include:

Basic Features
– Multiple game worlds with unique obstacles
– Customizable game profiles
– Achievements that can be shared online through social networks

Leaderboards
Tappy Cricket keeps track of each player’s game statistics throughout the course of their careers. Logged statistics include:

– Total Games
– Total Runs
– Average Score
– Highest Score
– Number of scores above 50
– Number of scores above 100

Multiplayer Mode
Tappy Cricket allows players to hold matches against family and friends. Game modes include:

– Single inning-games
– Twenty20 games (5 games, total score wins)
– One-Day International (10 games, total score wins)
– Test Match (20 games, total score wins)

– Multilingual functionality to feature new language support

Allan Bennetto, Founder of Fruitful Technologies and Tappy Cricket said: “Cricket is the world’s second most popular sport behind football with an estimated 2.5 billion fans in the world. Many of these fans are located in Asia, where there is an perfect storm of cheap, powerful devices coinciding with new faster networks and data plans. And they love games.

With Tappy Cricket, we didn’t just want to create another simulation style game. We wanted to gamify the whole social cricket experience so the anyone could play regardless of age. We wanted the Grandparents to be challenging the Grandkids.

Se we ended up creating a game with a really simple games engine, but bolted on a sophisticated stats engine to record all player details, just like in professional cricket.

What you have now is a game that is really simple to play, but difficult to master. But like cricket, the longer you play, the better you get and the more 100s you score and the better your average is.”

Tran Cong Than, Chief Technical Architect of Fruitful Technologies said: “We’re thrilled to finally get Tappy Cricket out to the public. The game is the product of the many hours of hard-work from our development team here in Vietnam. Tappy Cricket may look simple to play, but a lot of work has gone into getting the stats engine right and syncing up scores from both iOS and Android so that players can seamlessly compete with each other. We’re just getting started too. We’ll be introducing new worlds and new game modes in the coming months. We hope the players enjoy the game as much as we did making it.”

Tappy Cricket is free to download and play. The game is available in the Apple App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices.

About Tappy Cricket
Tappy Cricket is a wacky and addictive take on the classic game of Cricket. Extremely easy to pick up and play, Tappy Cricket provides hours of fun for players of all genders and ages. Simply tap the screen and send Tappy the ball through various cricket worlds and obstacles and compare your runs, highest score and average against the best.

Five year print partnership for Balreed and global golf tournament

Balreed to provide all print technology and support to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championships for the fifth year running.

It may be known to many professional golfers as the ‘Home of Golf’ but to Balreed, St. Andrews Golf Course is a ‘home away from home’.

Once again Balreed has been chosen by the organisers of the world-renowned golf championship, played at St Andrews, as the official supplier of print and document technology.

This is the fifth year the event will rely on Balreed throughout the four-day tournament to provide and support print, copy and scan devices to media tents, European tour offices and tournament offices across all three courses that the event plays on.

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a magnet for golfers from every corner of the world. It has a unique format and incorporates two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world’s leading golfers with a US$5 million prize fund, and a team competition which features some of the most celebrated amateur golfers playing alongside the professionals.

Lee Westwood leads the British challenge for the title this year, and many of the world’s leading international players will be there to compete with him. In the amateur ranks the playing roster is sure to include some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment, sport and business. Michael Douglas, Samuel L Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid have all shared the fairways in previous years with sporting greats like Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Bobby Charlton, Boris Becker, Ian Botham, Ruud Gullit, Johan Cruyff and Nigel Mansell so expectations of the 2012 field are very high.

The tournament starts on Thursday 4th October and will play over three championship Scottish courses: The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

Balreed’s support extends to all three courses and staff will be on site throughout the build-up and the tournament itself to help organisers prepare and manage the event.

Balreed’s Managing Director Robin Stanton-Gleaves commented: “When we were first selected to provide print support to the event five years ago we were thrilled, and even more so to be invited back the following year, it was a testament to our hard work. So to still be the chosen print partner five years later is a sincere compliment to all the Balreed team and we will continue to do what we have been doing which is careful planning and precise execution, providing service to the highest standard to ensure the tournament runs smoothly.”

SportsMark selects WinMagic Encryption technology to protect critical data at London 2012 Olympic Games

WinMagic Inc., the global innovator in disk encryption, today announced SportsMark has chosen WinMagic’s SecureDoc data security and encryption software to protect sensitive corporate hospitality program data for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Of the many events SportsMark will be involved in this year, including Super Bowl, The Masters, and the America’s Cup World Series, the London 2012 Olympic Games will be a pinnacle event. SportsMark has been preparing for this momentous event for over four years, working side by side with its clients to create unparalleled guest experiences and optimize their brand building and sales objectives. SportsMark’s clients will host more than 45,000 guests throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games, working with a staff of over 1,000 and managing tens of thousands of Olympic event tickets on behalf of their 15 clients.

“We’ve been working with SportsMark for quite some time and we’re very pleased that they selected SecureDoc as their data encryption solution to protect the personal information of all the guests they’ll be hosting during the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said Mark Hickman, worldwide vice-president of sales at WinMagic Inc. “As an existing customer, SportsMark recognized the ease of use and flexibility of SecureDoc and we were more than happy to help ensure this continued for a project of this importance and profile.”

SportsMark’s information services team determined that they required a rapid OS and encryption deployment ready for a highly mobile and diverse workforce to securing log in onto any of their laptops at any of the locations.

“WinMagic SecureDoc was clearly the answer to our requirements,” said Scott Shuemake, systems engineer at SportsMark. “We needed an encryption solution that we could quickly and easily implement, manage centrally and provide all temporary staff with access to all the devices, so we had the flexibility to move staff around the hospitality venues across London, sometimes at short notice.”

SportsMark Group has contracted 1000 temporary hospitality event staff to work for the duration of Olympic and Paralympic Games in more than 15 pop-up offices around central London. These staff will be supplied with rented laptops that require the hard drive to be fully encrypted.

The technical solution consisted of 300 temporary licenses of WinMagic SecureDoc and SecureDoc Enterprise Server to install the SecureDoc packages and provide recovery. SportsMark also utilized WinMagic consultancy services to ensure the smoothest and quickest deployment in the fastest possible timeframe. At the end of the project, SportsMark will take advantage of SecureDoc’s Crypto erase feature to decommission the devices used for the event.
