FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARSHALL UNIVERSITY UTILIZING TRAZER® IN KEY RESEARCH
TRAZER technology to be utilized in orthopedic, musculoskeletal, and clinical research initiatives led by industry leaders Timothy Hewett, Ph.D. and Dr. Chad Lavender.
CLEVELAND, OHIO, October 26, 2023 – As an innovative leader in technology designed for rehabilitation, strengthening and enhancing athletic performance, Trazer is pleased to announce a collaboration with Marshall University and Dr. Timothy Hewett. In addition to working with Dr. Hewett, the company will have the opportunity to be included in work by Dr. Chad Lavender in his groundbreaking fertilized ACL technique. Dr. Hewett, a Professor and Director of Research in the Marshall University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the School of Medicine, a long-time TRAZER advocate, is using the system in his work to improve/measure key protocols and tools for post-surgery rehabilitation of elite athletes. Dr. Hewett has held multiple leadership positions and has published hundreds of articles in peer-reviewed journals and is considered one of the world’s leading authorities in the field of injury prevention and rehabilitation, including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries.
Aligned at the intersection of biology, technology, and data, TRAZER is a cutting-edge, multi-patented technology that empowers users to rehabilitate, enhance athletic performance, and strengthen the mind-body connection, regardless of age or physical capability. With over 150 reaction-based activities and injury-specific protocols, performance metrics, and data, TRAZER serves as a predictive, prescriptive, and preventative tool leveraged by healthcare professionals, senior care providers, and sports medicine experts.
Dr. Hewett explains the selection of TRAZER, “We chose the system for its ability to track and measure both physical and cognitive functions.” He further explains, “The ability of TRAZER to track progression/degradation over time is key to our research. In addition to the multiple applications featured in the system, TRAZER will enable our ability to more comprehensively assess various protocols.”
Dr. Randy Cohen, Trazer VP of Elite Performance & Clinical Education and retired Associate AD Medical Services at the University of Arizona, emphasizes the importance of research and use case studies for TRAZER. “Healthcare and technology are constantly evolving, and ongoing education and research are vital for TRAZER to remain at the forefront, providing meaningful value to our customers, users, and ecosystem. Partnering with esteemed experts like Tim and Dr. Lavender is essential in unlocking the full potential of our technology.” Cohen adds, “TRAZER is a unique technology that holds limitless potential as our understanding of the brain-body connection deepens.”
Harlan Lyons, CEO of Trazer, expresses admiration for Dr. Hewett, Dr. Lavender, and Marshall University, stating, “We welcome opportunities such as this, which allow us to continuously learn from leaders such as Drs. Hewett and Lavender. This collaboration will be of immeasurable value to our ACL protocols and by extension, all TRAZER users.
TRAZER is a leading innovator in technology that improves and enhances human performance regardless of age or physical capability.
