BodyBio Makes PC Brain Supplement

BodyBio PC

CTE Awareness Day (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) happened on January 30 before Super Bowl LIII. Most of the Sports Techie community blog followers and readers had no idea this was so because neither did I. The recent Bob Costas interview on ESPN’s Outside The Lines show about NBC Sports pulling him as host of SB53 because of his public statements regarding the sport of football and violence which in many cases manifests as brain related just heated up this real-life and sometimes terrible death topic.  It is exciting to know CTE prevention is being done with equipment and game rules. The fact is, medical professionals are also transforming lifestyles, performances and longevity using diet and supplementation. In this case, over the last four decades, BodyBio has be...

Brain Injuries and Extreme Sports?

Brain Injuries and Extreme Sports?

Brain Injuries and Extreme Sports?

The appeal of extreme sports is in the adrenaline rush the athlete feels while engaged in the activity. The inherent danger involved, combined with the athlete’s requirement to push their body beyond its perceived limits, makes sports such as base jumping and free climbing a draw for millions of thrill seekers. Unfortunately, those who choose to participate in extreme sports often pay a higher price than other athletes. Injuries suffered by extreme sports athletes are often more severe and, as is the case with brain injuries, can sometimes lead to permanent disability.

In 2009, there were nearly 447,000 people treated in emergency rooms for sports-related head injuries, up 95,000 from the year prior...

NFL Pass Interference Instant Replay Challenge Reviews Set Up To Fail

Instant Replay Works
Say it ain’t so ref because it wasn’t…

NFL pass interference (PI) instant replay challenges and reviews have been doomed to fail since it was reluctantly voted in for the 2019/20 season by the Competition Committee made up of some of the unquestioned, top football minds in the sport but certainly not proponents of advanced technology in the game, especially New York Giants owner, John Mara. The exception being Sean Payton, the New Orleans Saints Head Coach who played the price for the lack of this rule in place when his team lost the NFC Championship game last year on an egregious PI no-call resulting in the LA Rams back-dooring into the Super Bowl here in Atlanta. Remember the word ‘egregious’ please because it’s important but is shouldn’t be...

Amazing Technology Supporting Disabled People in Sport

Sports Technology Evens the Playing Field for Disabled Athletes

The Sports Techie community blog champions the use of sports tech for the disabled athlete worldwide. I am not keen on using the term ‘disability’ or ‘handicapped’ and neither are England Athletics. Instead, there are more respectful and understanding words and terms to use. Accessibility for disabled sports people has improved considerably thanks to the invention of several new technologies. For some people, technology is the only way that they are able to continue doing what they love or even find new passions. Take what a wheelchair or prosthetic leg can do for a runner, sprinter or walker, as an example. This is a real human triumph that should be both acknowledged and celebrated...

Emory Child Study Center Numbers, Math And Space Research

My son was invited to the Emory Child Study Center today. Kellan is on the autism spectrum and was diagnosed nearby at Marcus Autism Center. Emory wants to know how children’s minds develop as they learn and grow. His Mom and I responded with a resounding, yes.
