Returning an injured athlete to play is a delicate process. How to best prepare an athlete for the physical and cognitive demands of their sport and how to decide when they are ready to move forward in the Return to Play (RTP) protocol? Read all about it in our whitepaper: Return to Play.
Together with Mark Jamison, Assistant Athletic Director of High Performance at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE), we've created a whitepaper to provide an overview of how the process from injury to full reintegration in their sport can be managed. It discusses how to approach RTP from a data standpoint and which technology can be beneficial to you.
The whitepaper also describes the importance of challenging an athlete cognitively to work on their decision making capabilities before releasing them into the chaos that is inherent to a sport setting.
This RTP framework is based on years of study and experience from leading research institutes and teams because, at Ledsreact, we really value research and try to implement the best practices into our work as also in our software.
