TRAZER aligns with our mission to serve the diverse populations within our communities and make real impact.  TRAZER features gamified activities that make working out fun for kids, seniors, and elite athletes alike,” says Boyd Williams, President and CEO of The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region said. Boyd continued, “The system not only helps identify weaknesses that could result in falls for seniors or poor performance in athletes, it features the very activities that can address those deficits. TRAZER gives us the ability to do outreach throughout our communities to offer fall risk assessments or pre-season assessments for sports teams. More importantly, it adds a very unique opportunity for our Members.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Boyd and the team across The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region. This partnership will establish a universal platform that can be expanded to impact the millions of people served by the YMCA nationwide and abroad.” expresses TRAZER CEO Harlan Lyons.













Dr. Randy Cohen, TRAZER’s VP of Elite Performance & Clinical Education and a retired Associate AD Medical Services at the University of Arizona, emphasizes “The significance of optimizing both physical and cognitive functions with TRAZER. TRAZER brings unique features, including a controlled environment with random stimuli and the ability to measure awareness in space, reaction time, asymmetries, and deceleration, helping identify deficits that may lead to injury or poor performance. By providing immersive activities in a natural environment free of sensors or wearables, TRAZER accurately and objectively tracks progress and improvement over time. Recognizing these weaknesses early on is critical in preventing injuries and risks of poor performance, making it essential to identify them before returning individuals to work or play to prevent reinjury.”
