OrthoArizona Uses SmartPhone App to Help Manage Sports Concussion Symptoms

Concussions caused by contact sports are a growing problem among young athletes. Especially when left undetected. That’s why OrthoArizona is doing its part to help make coaches, players, and parents aware of concussion symptoms in order to seek proper treatment and avoid being sidelined.

In fact, OrthoArizona Sports Medicine Specialist Dr. Brett DeGooyer is employing a smartphone app to help high school athletes in Chandler and Gilbert more effectively manage their concussion symptoms. The Sway Medical system runs tests and creates reports to help doctors analyze and compare the student-athletes’ balance, motion, reaction time and concussion symptoms. It’s an effective tool to help ensure that student athletes are symptom free before they return to the game.
