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...

FantasyBrain helps you connect with your fantasy sports rivals all over the world

FantasyBrain

The sports technology world never ceases to amaze me how the timing of a good idea can become a startup and then a sustainable business as might be the case for FantasyBrain, founded by Jonathan Joseph, or J.J. to most.

Fauci Opening Day TOPPS NOW Card Sets Sales Record

TOPPS NOW® card depicting Major League Baseball opening night first pitch by Dr. Anthony Fauci sold a record 51,512 copies.

COVID-19 is surging across much of America and so was Dr. Anthony Facui’s TOPPS NOW card illustrating his MLB opening day first pitch last Thursday before the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals game as it sold a record 51,512 cards distributed via the TOPPS Company platform. Perhaps his selection was a premonition against the reopening of baseball because the Florida Marlins reported today that 11 players and 2 coaches have tested positive for the virus after playing last night against the Philadelphia Phillies even though 4 players had been infected over the past 3 days making the decision to play baffling, reckless and unwise...

The Sports Techie LinkedIn Group surpassed 5,000 members and upon reflection, it was one of the hardest challenges to set my sights on and achieve over the past decade as curator of the Sports Techie community blog.

The Wearable Tech That’s Revolutionizing Injury Prevention In Top-Level Athletes

The NBA and other professional sports leagues are increasingly recognizing the advantage of collecting biometric data from their athletes, and this has led executives of Whoop to center themselves as the wearable of choice for professional athletes. Wearable tech delivers a number of advantages to athletes, but for those operating at a professional level, metrics like sleep patterns, heart rate and weight aren’t enough. Different injuries occur across the different sports and it’s important to be able to detect them early. Monitoring an athlete’s data allows coaches to diagnose and address problems before they turn into an injury that’s difficult to come back from. The Sports Techie community blog also believes that injury-centric biometric data can influence sports betting f...

Importance Of Choosing The Right Gears To Give The Best Game Performance

One American Football Player Man Studio Isolated In Full Gear

Wearing the right clothes and gears in football is more than just showing how cool you look in your game outfit. It’s also about walking with your head high into the field, prepared and well-protected for the “battle” ahead.

While it’s easy to choose gears based on how they look, it’s also important to know the science behind the design. Most of these gears were assembled using the science related to sports-specific movements and impacts.

This is especially true when it comes to helmets, because players could suffer from serious head injuries and broken skulls if they don’t wear one. Hence, if you wish to avoid muscle pains and broken bones, picking your gears is a process that you must take seriously...
