An innovative e-Mobile Application for Concussions

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 4, 2016) - A new interdisciplinary e-Mobile health platform now offers an application, among others, for the detection and management of concussions as well as light cranial-cerebral traumas (LCCT) based on protocol US CDC. This timely development follows a December 2015 Action Plan by the Ministry of Education of Québec for the prevention and management of concussions intended for schools and sports federations.

The post traumatic data extracted from the symptoms and signs, such as cognitive/memory parameters, physical, motor, emotional and sleep behaviors, are initially gathered by a designated attendant in a school or sport environment and an athlete who was trained for the purpose. This will help make appropriate decisions about whether or not to allow the affected player to return to the game and/or receive post-traumatic care.

The Canadian Dental Research Institute (CDRI, www.cdri-icrd.ca; info.cdri.icrd@gmail.com) in Québec is hosting a medical-dental consortium in order to expand this state-of-the-art e-mobile platform, "one-device, one-portal, unlimited health apps" that will benefit the corporate, academic/research, military and government spheres.
