Welcome to SFCC from Lyndsey Talbot, SFCC Head Softball Coach

Session 1 - 8:35-9:25 am

Concussions: EyeBOX Assessment and Treatment

Concussions can happen in practice or games, can affect everyone differently and may not appear until days after injury. Up until recently, concussion assessment has been subjective. Bothwell has the EyeBOX, the first FDA-authorized diagnostic aid for concussion evaluation that provides a science-based objective assessment of whether or not a concussion has occurred and its severity. The tool tracks eye movements with a safe, high-frequency camera and provides a score and valuable data. Watch and participate in a demo and get your treatment questions answered.
