Cerora, Inc. Introduces Qumpass(TM) Neuropsychological Testing Software at Meeting of American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)

Software Uniquely Supports Both 'Return-to-Learn' and 'Return-to-Play' Decisions Around Concussion

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Noting that school athletes who've sustained a concussion are at magnified risk if they return to the playing field too soon, Cerora, Inc. today continued its introduction of Qumpass™ brain evaluation software to help empower clinicians to objectively assess that risk. Qumpass has been specifically designed to enable clinicians to address the equally important, if not more important, 'Return-to-Learn' question -- because returning to class without a significant period of cognitive rest can put a patient at substantial risk.

Cerora's Qumpass software is the first in a series of new Cerora products aimed at finally providing coaches and sports medicine practitioners with objective criteria for their decisions on whether players are ready to resume sports, studies, or other brain-intensive challenges.

"Cognitive rest is an often neglected component of concussion management, yet is as vital to an athlete's recovery as physical rest" stated Jack Foley, Assistant Athletic Director and Director of Sports Medicine at Lehigh University. "Lehigh's therapeutic goal is to limit cognitive (concentration, learning, memory) activity to a level that is tolerable and does not exacerbate the re-emergence of symptoms. Our mantra is "Cognitive management = Academic management!"

"We've designed our new Qumpass software precisely to address the need for cognitive data that would inform the concussion-related decisions that sports clinicians like Jack Foley deal with daily", commented Cerora CEO, Adam Simon, PhD. "In addition to Qumpass, we are working closely with Jack and Lehigh Sports Medicine to evaluate the addition of our new MindReader™ wearable EEG/biosensor device to his trainer's kit of available tools."

Sports medicine clinicians are invited to learn more about Qumpass and Cerora's developing product pipeline by visiting exhibit booth number 347 at the ACSM meeting.
