Today, we are incredibly excited to announce our new research partnership with the University of Waterloo, one of the world's top Universities and a consistent leader in research and innovation.

The partnership will leverage the incredible faculty and students of the Statistics & Actuarial Science department to assist in analyzing individual or individuals' pre- and post-concussion data generated by our app, EQ.  

The results of this research, we believe, will assist us in improving both EQ and our underlying technology in two primary ways:

  • Assessing whether there is significant deviation from normal neurological function that could be due to a concussion

  • Develop a better understanding of how to more effectively assist Clinicians in determining when it is safe for an individual to resume various types of activities following a diagnosed concussion

We expect there will be many other interesting insights offered by the analysis completed as a part of this research partnership and will share what we are able to on our blog.

We’d like to thank the University of Waterloo for the honour of working with them on this study, as we recognize not all companies get the opportunity. We believe the importance of the issue at hand, and our fantastic team and technology played an important role in that decision.
