Ensuring that from time of injury through proper treatment, TBIs/concussions receive the attention they deserve and dangerous repeat injuries are minimized. Spot Light enables communication between all responsible parties and ensures that safety rules are applied properly to protect the athlete.
Creation Story: The idea for Spot Light was born at a hack-a-thon on the campus of the Ohio State University by a team of entrepreneurs’ that wanted to improve the safety of contact sports that they love to play. The Spot Light Team has been personally touched by the tremendous impact that Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) or concussions have on athletes and worked to build a system that would ensure that every potential TBI was treated with the care it deserves from sideline to proper return to play (RTP).
After winning the hack-a-thon, the team of entrepreneurs started Inlightened llc. to complete the Spot Light build out through intense collaboration and market feedback from athletic trainers and experts in the field. Through this iterative process the current Spot Light System was born and a partnership with Nationwide Children’s Hospital was formed.
Spot Light and Nationwide Children’s Hospital share a deep interest in finding ways to make youth athletics safer through data and process. Spot Light’s collaboration with Nationwide Children’s has been crucial in its ability to make this a successful generation one product.
The Goal: Spot Light’s goal is to ensure that all potential TBIs/concussions are identified, tested, and tracked from the sideline to proper return to play.
Our Belief: Tracking = Better Treatment and that by ensuring that every potential TBI or concussion is monitored according to the sponsoring athletic bodies protocol, the risk that symptoms will be ignored and re-injury occurring is greatly reduced. Spot Light’s goal is to ensure that every brain injury is treated with the same level of respect that it deserves to ensure that the athlete’s future is protected.
