Brain State Technologies announces that a series of young athletes with long-term symptoms after concussion showed a variety of lasting improvements, after using HIRREM® neurotechnology. At three months, the athletes maintained their reduction of symptoms, and they had all returned to full physical exercise. The study included nineteen participants, who had concussion symptoms for an average of five and one half months, before using HIRREM. HIRREM is an acronym for High-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring.
A majority of the athletes in the study went back to participation in their competitive sport. There were also durable changes in variability of their heart rates, suggesting enhanced capacity for the heart to make rapid, adaptive adjustments in its pumping function. In a portion of the group that also underwent reaction testing before and after the HIRREM sessions, there were significant improvements on average. Reaction time is typically slowed after concussion.
