Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 12, 2015
Wimbledon Health Partners, the leading on-site diagnostic testing organization which provides vascular, echocardiogram and NCV testing, is proud to recognize the role athletic trainers have in the lives of athletes this National Athletic Training Month. Wimbledon Health Partners has been honored to partner with athletic trainers around the country to reduce the incidences of sudden cardiac death in athletes.
“We Prepare – You Perform” is the theme of this year’s National Athletic Training Month, which is sponsored by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), a not-for-profit organization based in Dallas, Texas. Wimbledon Health Partners athletic division, Wimbledon U recognizes athletic trainers and what they stand for: the health and safety of athletes everywhere. Wimbledon U is privileged to work with athletic trainers who strive for excellence and raise the bar along the way.
The diagnostic tests performed by the Wimbledon U collegiate division, include a non-invasive vascular ultrasound and echocardiogram, testing for underlying symptoms of Marfan syndrome and sudden cardiac arrest – the leading cause of death among young athletes. The tests also eliminate false positives that can deem athletes ineligible to play.
"I have had the privilege of working with athletic trainers all over the country and I have great admiration for their unrelenting work ethic and dedication to the athletes in their care. Behind every player and coach there is an athletic trainer, enthusiastically devoted to their chosen occupation working endless hours to ensure the safety of athletes,” states Tara Woodruff, director of Wimbledon U.
On-site diagnostic testing is convenient for athletes because appointments are booked around class and training schedules, and testing is performed in familiar surroundings – minimizing stress and anxiety. Most importantly, athletes (and their coaches) know exactly where they stand health-wise, getting back in the game healthy and ready to compete.
Wimbledon U has expanded their reach to additional NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA colleges/universities across the country and are quickly becoming the provider of choice.
