At Presagia, we pride ourselves on providing an innovative, powerful, and essential software that simplifies the lives of our clients while helping them reach new heights and achieve their objectives. Our experience has been very positive. Now we can document on the road, instead of staying late in the office. The functionality of the system does exactly that, it bridges the gap between performance and research. I can get on the phone to learn how a specific feature was designed to work and in doing so use the system better, and I can actually make system suggestions when I think something should work differently. Sometimes I have even teamed up with other Presagia customers to suggest new functionality.
The Business Case for an On-site Industrial Athletic Trainer
Athlete Case Study
Many years ago I got tired of watching my athletes roll in to the athletic training room and slap on ice. These athletes are in a drug-like induced state of ice addiction. So I began my own case study. Warning: Telling an athlete not to ice brings about a firestorm from all angles. It is possible you will be hung, drawn, quartered, and undoubtedly face major scrutiny. Your athletes will whine, piss, and moan the day you stop allowing ice. Your athletes may befriend a student athletic trainer to do the dirty deeds.
Athletes expect that their athletic trainers will be able to assess their injuries and look out for their best interests. In fact, under Illinois law, when a person takes a job in which they are responsible for providing a service to another person, and they fail to use reasonable care in carrying out that service, and as a result an injury occurs, that is enough to potentially hold the person liable in an Illinois personal injury lawsuit. The facts in the case alleged that the boy sustained a concussion in an earlier game, but athletic trainers responsible for his care allowed him to participate with the concussion in a later game that caused his permanent injury.
When we decided to profile an athletic trainer, one particular person came to mind immediately. Having spent time discussing the world of athletic training with him, his fresh perspective on the profession and forward thinking always leaves us impressed. Like many student athletes, Kevin was first introduced to the world of athletic training by sustaining an injury.
