Working with CogniSens will allow us to ensure that sports teams and institutes have the most advanced technology available to make accurate health decisions for their athletes, while simultaneously working to enhance their performance.
Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) March 12, 2015
Presagia Sports announced today a new partnership with neurotechnology provider CogniSens, in a move that unites cutting-edge technological solutions for enhancing athlete health, performance and concussion management.
As the leading provider of cloud-based Athlete Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, Presagia Sports is a trusted source for software that improves athlete health management and rehabilitation. The system comes complete with a mobile-accessible SCAT3 concussion assessment tool that athletic trainers can use anytime and anywhere with their smartphones or tablets.
CogniSens specializes in technologies that are proven to enhance performance and provide cognitive medical support for athletes. Their world-renowned NeuroTracker technology trains athletes to track multiple objects at high speeds in order to improve performance on the field. In addition, the data derived from NeuroTracker can be used in baseline measurements to guide concussion management and return-to-play decisions.
“Our shared focus on improving concussion management is a key facet of our partnership,” said Mitchell Slutsken, Director of Presagia Sports. “Working with CogniSens will allow us to ensure that sports teams and institutes have the most advanced technology available to make accurate health decisions for their athletes, while simultaneously working to enhance their performance.”
Sports organizations are increasingly recognizing the need to remain at the forefront of technological advances in order to promote athlete safety while retaining their competitive edge. With CogniSens and Presagia, organizations will be able to design programs with a dual focus on athlete health and performance -- for instance, concussion management programs can use Presagia’s SCAT3 assessment tool alongside NeuroTracker software for assessing and improving awareness and focus.
According to CogniSens CEO Jean Castonguay, the synergy between CogniSens and Presagia Sports made a partnership “too attractive to pass up.”
"We are thrilled to begin a partnership with Presagia,” he said. “Practitioners of sports medicine can benefit greatly from our technologies, and offering NeuroTracker alongside Presagia's EHR and concussion management system gives immense value to them.”
