US All Star Federation Cheer Organization Partners with Quadrant Biosciences to Offer Brain Health Assessments


SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The US All Star Federation ("USASF"), a nonprofit corporation established to make All Star Cheer and Dance teams a safer sport, has selected Quadrant Biosciences Inc. ("Quadrant Biosciences") as its official Brain Health Partner. Quadrant Biosciences will provide USASF gyms access to the ClearEdge Brain Health Toolkit ("ClearEdge"), to objectively measure and track cognitive function, balance and symptoms.

The USASF was established to provide consistent rules that foster a safer environment for its athletes and promotes a positive image for the sport. To achieve this objective, the organization maintains and adjusts safety guidelines, certifies safety judges and ensures coaches are fully credentialed.  Entering into strategic partnerships, such as this one with Quadrant Biosciences and their novel ClearEdge Brain Health Toolkit, furthers this important goal. 

ClearEdge was developed in cooperation with researchers and clinicians at SUNY Upstate Medical University and includes a collection of FDA compliant functional assessments designed to monitor and track subtle changes in cognitive function, balance, and patient symptoms over time. Certified ClearEdge test administrators will meet with USASF members pre-season for initial brain health testing. Athletes will be monitored throughout the season as needed.   

Kristen Lawless, a cheer mom from Dallas, Texas explained how having her daughters tested with ClearEdge helped ease her mind over head injuries. "Three of my daughters have had concussions in cheer," said Lawless, "so by the time we experienced our second concussion, I understood you cannot cure a concussion, but you can effectively manage it, and prevent further harm. ClearEdge has given my family the comfort of knowing we can handle a concussion if one occurs again. Through baseline testing and monitoring throughout the injury cycle, I know my children are in the very best hands."

USASF gyms across the country will have access to ClearEdge within the coming weeks to begin pre-season testing. Lawless encourages other cheer moms to consider having their kids tested with ClearEdge. "Cheerleaders are athletes, sometimes athletes get hurt. I am thankful to know ClearEdge is there to help."
