TRAZER uniquely integrates the vision, senses, mind and body as the user responds to random cues in multiple directions in free space, tracking up to 25 points, and measuring that which is invisible to the naked eye.
TRAZER is a neuromechanical device – while we overload the brain with multiple tasks, the body is in constant motion, working to elevate the heart rate and perform over distances relevant in the real world. We believe that it is this synergy, requiring the subject to sense – process – and execute that makes the magic.
Would objective, printable documentation of your patient’s changes in performance be of value to you as a clinician? TRAZER reports can easily be printed or pdf’d to share with patients, physicians and insurance providers.
TRAZER has been successfully reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid, and third-party payers under a variety of billing codes. TRAZER’s 12-minute, scripted exercise sessions for ankle, knee, hip, balance and vestibular issues range in difficulty from very low amplitude, recently weight-bearing to dynamic, return to full function. The intuitive interface takes only a few seconds to adapt to.
TRAZER is used to help manage patients in orthopedics, sports medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics and cardiac care. It provides a therapist-directed means to precisely control the intensity, the direction, distance, pattern and frequency of physical challenges in response to both unplanned and planned movement cues. Whether a disorder degrades the subject’s functional capabilities (such as with concussion, injury, stroke or arthritis) or where movement is essential to the full restoration of health (such as with obesity, heart disease, or diabetes), TRAZER offers an assessment protocol that accurately documents performance, compliance with the exercise prescription, and treatment outcomes.
TRAZER offers consistency of care. Though the patient may not have the same therapist or nurse each session, their exercise protocol can be standardized and tracked via TRAZER. The reporting is objective for each session. With proper password protected access, the patient’s TRAZER records can be shared with a new healthcare provider across town or around the world.
Dr. Joseph Congeni is the Director of Sports Medicine and Clinical Co-Director, Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine at Akron’s Children’s Hospital. He is a noted researcher on the subject of orthopedics and concussions. Dr. Congeni identifies three obstacles to protecting our youth:
- There is no national standard for baseline orthopedic or concussion assessment; nor is there a path to delivery for every youth athlete.
- There is no national standard or structured return to play protocol. Nor is there the ability to objectively measure key performance indicators such as reaction time during game-like physical exertional levels.
- There are few educational resources for concerned parents, youth athletes, administrators, etc.
