National partnership ensures athlete’s brain health and safety is protected through industry-leading concussion app platform.
Colorado Springs, CO – USA Cycling, the national governing body for bicycle racing in the United States, and HEADCHECK HEALTH, Inc. (‘HEADCHECK’), a leading tech-enabled provider of concussion protocol management, today announced a landmark agreement making HEADCHECK the Concussion Technology Partner of USA Cycling.
As a result, USA Cycling will execute and monitor its concussion protocol for the National Team using the HEADCHECK concussion app platform. Using HEADCHECK enables USA Cycling to better prevent mismanaged concussions by streamlining all necessary documentation, testing, and return-to-sport management. In addition, the digital collection and review of aggregate data can inform meaningful changes to the USA Cycling concussion protocol based on specific trends.
“For over a decade, USA Cycling has been conducting baseline testing as part of our concussion protocol,” said USA Cycling Chief of Sport Performance, Jim Miller. “HEADCHECK will help us continue to prioritize the health and safety of our athletes all while simplifying the process in the event of a suspected head injury.”
“We look forward to working with a great organization like USA Cycling to mitigate the risks of mismanaged concussions,” said HEADCHECK CEO Harrison Brown. “Our digital technology will keep them on the cutting edge of concussion protocol management.”
