.UC, team doctor Jon Divine, orthopedic surgeon Angelo Colosimo and trainer Bob Mangine have a tool at their disposal that few other schools have to provide objective, measurable data to help them make what often can be a difficult call.
.It's called Dynavision D2, and UC is one of seven schools in the country that have one. The others are Baylor, Texas A&M, Texas-Corpus Christi, Central Florida, Army and Air Force. UC is the first to use it for return-to-play decisions.
.The device tracks, measures and improves reaction time, peripheral awareness, hand-eye coordination and other visual motor skills.
.UC started using it last summer at training camp for its football players, all of whom were baseline-tested so that when an injury occurs, the sports medicine staff can compare the before and after scores to measure the cognitive and motor activity of the player's brain.
."The team physician gets a ton of information to make the return-to-play decision," said Dr. Joseph Clark, a professor of neurology at UC who assists with the athletics training staff to administer the D2 testing. "The D2 is extremely objective and a very precise, quantifiable number that goes into that calculation. It does visual field with visual motor and reflex time."
