Evan Holyfield Flaunts Secret Weapon: ‘It’s the Future’
Heavy.com

If retired heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield’s next-gen fitness plan from 35 years ago was worthy of its name “Omega Project”, then his son Evan Holyfield’s sports cognition training program should probably be called something like “Project Z”.

Because where the elder Holyfield’s training methods were cutting edge stuff back then, the neuro-fitness regimen his son is doing through a company called Reflexion makes all that stuff seem like ancient history.

How Dr. Daniel Laby of SportsVision NYC Created a Whole Category of Moneyball for Vision

Do athletes have a sixth sense when it comes to anticipating a penalty kick or deciphering whether to swing at an iffy strike zone pitch? Yes and no — it’s a mix of stellar hand-eye coordination, past experience that helps athletes anticipate the ball, and training. But not simply athletic training; visual-motor reaction time training.

Reflexion's big-screen concussion tester is heading to schools
Engadget

We met Reflexion and its Edge screen last year, and even then we were pretty taken with the idea: A Whac-A-Mole-style test for athletes that improves coordination and helps spot concussions after a big hit? It's uniquely odd, but valuable nonetheless. This year, the team is back with an essentially final version of its six-foot-long display, and it has one crucial trick its predecessor didn't: You can fold it up and squeeze it into a backpack, perfect for high school coaches who need to lug these things to games.

New Technology Unveiled At CES 2017 Can Help Spot Concussions In Just 30 Seconds

Concussions continue to plague sports of all kinds, with occasionally tragic outcomes. A new piece of technology, unveiled at CES 2017, may be the key to catching concussions that would otherwise go undetected.

The Reflexion Edge, from the Reflexion Interactive Technologies, aims to shed light on some of the darker areas of concussion protocol that leaves mild concussions often undiagnosed—leaving an athlete exposed to potentially devastating, compounding effects down the line.

This Portable Prototype Is Designed To Detect Concussions In 30 Seconds
Forbes

American high school football is 47 percent of all reported sports concussions and 33% of those happen during sports practice. Ice hockey and soccer closely follow concussions in high school sports. Athletes can go to the hospital for an MRI or CT scan to determine if they've suffered a concussion, but it's difficult to detect a concussion in the moment.

There is dectection technology for concussions ranging from the King-Devick test, ImPACT test and BrainScope's EEG technology which all use single symptom diagnosis like eye movement, brain waves or a test-retest variance to determine concussion. Even with these tests, environmental conditions can have an impact on diagnosis. By example, if someone is tired or has a headache, the rapid movement of the eye between fixed points may be slowed down, but peripheral vision could be just fine. This makes it hard to detect mild concussions.

Reflexion Edge: A New Idea for Concussion Assessment
Medgadget

Reflexion Interactive out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania is showing off a novel touch-based concussion assessment system. It consists of a series of panels with LEDs that light up for the person using it to touch. The system lights up patterns that have to be reached out for and touched. Because it is so wide, it often requires the user to physically move to reach different spots on the system. It measures accurately the user touches the targets, as well as how fast.

The current device weighs less than 20 pounds (9 Kg) when broken down and can be stuffed inside a carrying bag.
