HitCheck announces its collaboration with TeachAids to give its users free of charge concussion education program with CrashCourse.
FREMONT, CA: HitCheck, a mobile app that enables clinicians and trainers to baseline and screen for cognitive evaluation, recently announced its collaboration with TeachAids to give its users free of charge concussion education program with the help of CrashCourse. By taking the course, users can receive a completion certificate that shows their understanding of concussion prevention and care.
"We created CrashCourse in collaboration with more than 100 medical, science and sport industry experts to improve understanding and awareness of concussions among athletes, parents and coaches," says Dr. Piya Sorcar, Founder and CEO of TeachAids.
In order to attract and engage athletes, the program incorporates state-of-the-art technologies and interactive features as they learn how to diagnose and respond to concussion injuries. The product is unique not only in its visual technology but also in the way it talks about the significance of reporting a concussion to a coach, athletic instructor, or parent from the athlete's perspective.
HitCheck uses structured cognitive test techniques based on decades of medical studies and converts them into short, simple mobile examination exercises that users can take immediately, anytime, and anywhere an injury is detected. A particular feature of brain function is evaluated by each test, like coordination, memory, reaction time, and many more. HitCheck collects, tracks, and compares these objective, quantitative results with previous performance when the test is complete and highlights transformation in brain functions that might need more medical treatment.
"We are excited to offer HitCheck users' access to CrashCourse--a free education and certification program that will provide an amazing experience for athletes, coaches and parents to learn what a concussion is and how to identify and respond. Providing the ability to educate athletes and coaches on early detection of a concussion will help them understand the importance of a healthy brain," said CEO of HitCheck, Mike Piha.
