SyncThink, creators of the EYE-SYNC technology, announces new partnerships in the physical therapy space with Symmetry Physical Therapy and Concussion Management of New York, onboarding its platform to better serve patients.
Symmetry Physical Therapy is an outpatient physical rehabilitation center based in Texas, comprised of clinicians providing specialty care in both orthopedics and manual therapy. The practice will be utilizing EYE-SYNC for concussion baseline screening, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation. Symmetry will also use the platform as a visual training product with elderly patients to minimize fall risk, as well as with teens and adults seeking to improve coordination and agility – either as a part of post-injury recovery or to enhance recreational activity performance, according to a media release.
“We’re very excited to have added the EYE-SYNC technology to our clinic. We are now able to identify eye movement issues that are related to a variety of mechanical head, neck, jaw and spine dysfunctions that we see regularly with our patients. We can utilize this information to add another level of care – providing activities that enable our patients to better synchronize their vision, balance systems, and postural muscles so that they can move more efficiently throughout their daily life,” states Symmetry Physical Therapy owner Julie Mankinen, in the release.
“In addition to being a unique visual training tool, the EYE-SYNC technology gives us great feedback about how patients are responding to all of their prescribed therapy activities. We’re seeing significant change in visual response within individual treatment sessions at times, as well as over the course of more extended therapy.”
Concussion Management of New York, a concussion specialist clinic, is an institute for concussive rehabilitation that’s focused on diagnosing and managing concussions in the athletic, performing arts, and pediatric populations. It will use the EYE-SYNC platform for quantitative supporting data during concussion assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, and additionally through collaborative research through its partnership with Mount Sinai Hospital.
“We are very excited we have acquired EYE-SYNC,” says Alex Gometz, the Founder of Concussion Management of New York, the release continues. “We are always looking for ways to improve accuracy in our diagnosis and tools to get our patients better in the shortest amount of time, and we found EYE-SYNC is the best tool to help us do that. It is a practical, time-efficient and effective way to address a very common problem we find in a significant number of concussions.”
Symmetry PT and Concussion Management of New York add to the clinical providers that use the EYE-SYNC platform in a variety of ways. Other partners of SyncThink include Massachusetts General Hospital, Children’s National, Stanford Children’s, Wentworth Douglass Hospital, and more.
