Unearth the hidden killer!
The third head injury to my son Samuel proved the adage that a diagnosis can only ever be as accurate as the information that has been submitted.
The difficulty in relating the incident and Samuel’s medical history to medical staff. Them ignoring the previous injuries, and the disconnect with the eventual diagnosis; demonstrated that incident data and medical history needed to be easily collected, updated and available at all times.
We sought help and found that:
Focus is on sports concussions. Even though more occur in daily life, with studies suggesting over 10% of teenagers, and 15% of the adult population have existing concussion symptoms, equating to over 450 Million worldwide!!!
With over 40 potential symptoms, concussion can mirror conditions such as Anxiety, Depression, Autism and PTSD, therefore the concussion is often misdiagnosed!
Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with a condition but has unexplained EXTRA symptoms?
As Maximizer, we had been developing wearable technology to measure a person's musculoskeletal efficiency and the effectiveness of their training.
OUR SOLUTION: was to form Minder Foundation, a nonprofit focused on raising concussion awareness, and developing a head injury monitoring system utilizing our patents.
To benefit as wide a demographic of users and collect as much data as possible, our app and the online testing facility is FREE.
Users can upload the test results and details of ANY head injuries to their own online user control panel. Allowing patients, parents and Medical Professionals to access and update data to monitor changes thru a head injury.
The resultant database will also provide a valuable source of anonymous data for all bonafide researchers.
Samuel is now a normal healthy 7yo. Unfortunately as we didn't have a before and after test we'll never know how his head injuries have changed him?
This is a huge task and now we need your help!
