WILMINGTON, N.C., October 26, 2022 (Newswire.com) - SportGait, the brain wellness and medical technology company, proudly announced today a partnership with The Carrick Institute, world leader in clinical neuroscience education. The Carrick Institute will incorporate SportGait's platform into their premier Management of Concussion program.
"We have embedded SportGait directly into the coursework while developing one of the world's most comprehensive assessment programs," says Dr. Antonucci, Chiropractic Neurologist and Assistant Professor of Neurology. "When you start looking at concussion, you really can't avoid the fact that it changes individuals' gaits. Even after all symptoms are gone and patients are thinking clearer, the effects of the concussion are still pervasive and persistent, and we can only measure those things realistically by measuring gait."
SportGait, which offers a scalable platform for medical providers, coaches and parents, seeks to bridge the gap between brain wellness and medical technology using a best-in-class, research-backed application developed by a team of doctors and scientists focused in the field of concussion.
"The Carrick Institute is thrilled to welcome SportGait as a partner," commented Dr. Frederick Carrick, Chancellor and Founder of The Carrick Institute. Bringing their technology into our program will help to ensure we continue to offer the most comprehensive, effective and valuable training on the management of concussions around the world."
Participants of the Management of Concussion course will begin using the SportGait tools later this fall.
"We are enthusiastic by this partnership so that, collectively, our tools in the hands of Carrick-trained clinicians, should only mean better outcomes for patients," says SportGait CEO Chris Newton.
