Our team at Neck Tronics is pleased to welcome Dr. Danielle Salmon to our site from the University of Otago (New Zealand) on October 4-6th 2017.
Her current research is in collaboration with New Zealand Rugby and the Otago Rugby Union a semi-professional rugby team in New Zealand, to identify if increasing neck strength can potentially decrease concussion in rugby players.
Marketing director Anindita Gupta says, “with a working P2 prototype and filing of our Global PCT this is a great opportunity to align Neck Tronics with leading researchers in neck assessment and conditioning programs globally.”
“We are honoured that Dr. Salmon would take time out of her busy schedule to do to a site visit and build on the relationship we have established over the past few months.”
Originally from Canada Dr. Salmon earned her Ph.D. in New Zealand where she examined exercise programs to decrease chronic neck pain in rugby players.
Prior to that her masters was completed in Canada studying exercise programs to decrease chronic neck pain by increasing neck strength in Canadian Airforce CH-146 Griffon aircrew.
She and her team were highlighted in the University of Otago news to be conducting ground-breaking work in concussion research.
