Sports Brain will be a terrific partner for us so that we can continue to educate our clients about how to manage concussions. It will also allow us to deliver high quality care for our clients who have suffered concussions,” said Joe LaPorta, CEO.

Sports Brain is a national organization based in Chicago, fighting concussions at all levels or sports including youth, high school, college, and professional sports. Sports Brain fights concussions by implementing comprehensive baseline concussion testing programs which are convenient and affordable to help ensure that every athlete can have access to annual baseline testing.

Flexeon Rehabilitation is the Official Sports Medicine Provider for many high schools, colleges, universities, clubs, organizations and professional teams. Flexeon Rehabilitation certified athletic trainers and physical therapists frequently travel with affiliated teams to provide timely and precise orthopedic care on-site.

“We are very excited to launch this partnership with Flexeon,” said Roy Kessel, Founder of Sports Brain. “We believe that this partnership will allow us to expand the delivery of comprehensive baseline concussion testing in the community. We know from past experience that it is important to make baseline concussion tests convenient and affordable. This partnership with Flexeon will allow us to reach more young athletes to help ensure that they receive annual baseline concussion testing.”

“We are excited to partner with Sports Brain to help Flexeon expand our concussion services,” said Joe LaPorta, CEO of Flexeon Rehabilitation. “We know that many parents do not have enough information about baseline concussion testing or the importance of recognizing concussion related symptoms. Sports Brain will be a terrific partner for us so that we can continue to educate our clients about how to manage concussions. It will also allow us to deliver high quality care for our clients who have suffered concussions,” said LaPorta. “We are especially excited about the vision we share with Sports Brain to help us take care of the health and safety of the young athletes in the communities that we serve.”

“Flexeon has a strong customer base and is growing rapidly in this marketplace,” said Roy Kessel. “We want to help them provide proper education for parents, coaches and athletes so that each group understands the risks of concussions and can gain a better understanding of the necessary steps to better manage the concussion process such as implementing mandatory, annual baseline concussion testing, better concussion education and proper concussion treatment after the injury. Most organizations are not training their coaches and staff on all of the proper considerations for Return-to-Play and Return-to-Learn which are crucial to protecting the health and safety of the athletes after they have suffered concussions.”
