In 2012, HEADCHECK Health co-founders Harrison Brown and Kerry Costello began working towards building a better concussion diagnostic test for use on the sidelines of sports activities.
They spent that year reaching out to sports organizations stakeholders to validate their concept and received some surprising feedback. While there was strong support for the test they were developing, potential users also spoke of the need for an all-in-one platform that could incorporate the new test alongside the other tests and processes they were already performing to manage concussions. Harrison and Kerry emerged from these talks with a laser-focused desire to build better concussion testing tools and a platform that could incorporate all aspects of concussion management in one place.
We need to protect the athletes who put everything, including themselves, on the line to achieve their goals.
