DENVER (PRWEB) June 08, 2018
In its May 2018 issue, notable publication CIO Review highlighted 20 of the most promising sports technology solution providers of the year. From enhancing data collection and analysis to providing athletes with the most advanced mobility technologies, the companies selected have the potential to improve the sports arena beyond recognition.
Among those featured was Avexia, an athlete recovery management startup that puts an emphasis on personalized healthcare in every phase of recovery, thus providing solutions for improved physical and mental health, as well as taking preventative measures against drug and opioid abuse.
Throughout its spotlight on Avexia, editors at CIO Review gleaned further insight on the company’s mission and purpose from its CEO, Steve Moye, who is a sports injury survivor himself.
Because of his own experiences, it was simple for Moye to identify the areas in which sports recovery programs needed improvement. For instance, many healthcare professionals take a physical approach to recovery, rather than considering the patient’s mental and emotional needs in conjunction. While such strategies may work to solve the apparent issue, it could be detrimental to an athlete’s long-term progress — namely, to their ability to return to their pre-injury performance levels.
Therefore, the need for a more holistic approach to athletic recovery became all the more apparent to Steve Moye, and the first ideas for a personalized, athlete-focused recovery platform came into being. From its very inception, Avexia’s mission has been to provide care to individuals on every side of the spectrum, from dedicated and competing athletes to those who enjoy going on a run from time to time.
With that in mind, Steve Moye and his innovative team opted to include a number of self-help tools on the application, including a Self-Help Digital Library, Recovery Tools Hub, and even a Peer Support Community. That way, each athlete has the opportunity to take their health into their own hands, fully comprehend every step of their recovery journey, and find sources of emotional support and encouragement from those enduring similar trials.
Avexia also offers a broad range of physical support tools as well, ranging from self-management activities that support individual recovery needs, to pain and medication management. The latter feature was designed to prevent long-term dependence and addiction to a number of strong medications, namely opioids.
Following the completion of assessments and the frequent use of various data-gathering tools across the platform, Avexia utilizes artificial intelligence to provide its users with personalized, logic-driven feedback on their scores, daily practices, and even suggestions for alternative physical and medicinal practices.
As the platform’s following continues to grow and solutions improve, Steve Moye and his partners see the company expanding far beyond an application. Instead, it is their hope to expand first into university athletic departments, then into larger organizations like orthopedic centers.
