TRAZER is the revolutionary patented technology of TRAQ Global Ltd. that offers specialized interactive testing and training programs for concussion management, orthopedic rehabilitation, senior health and injury prevention. Clinicians, athletic trainers, and coaches are provided with data, giving them the ability to make strategic and confident Return-2-Play (R2P) and Return-2-Activities of Daily Living (R2ADL) for their patients.
The TRAZER technology uses computer-based simulation to create an accurate analog of the functional challenges of sports, work, leisure and daily living activities. TRAZER tracks 25 points on the human body. This allows core physical and physiologic performance to be quantified as reaction time, acceleration, speed, endurance, jump height, cardiovascular efficiency, caloric expenditure, and distance traveled.
The TRAZER Sports Simulator uses full body sensing, 3-D graphics and breakthrough measurement analytics to provide information directly related to your patient’s healthy performance capabilities. In the event of injury, our patented baseline data can be compared to future Return-to-Play TRAZER Tests post injury to ensure a safe and healthy return.
TRAZER also provides healthcare providers and clinicians with standardized, objective, actionable data that can be accessed instantly through our HIPAA compliant Cloud website. This immediate access to TRAZER’s reports and test results gives each person involved, whether it be the patient, parent, coach or healthcare provider, a unique, relevant and invaluable opportunity to better assist in the return-to-play and return-to-work decisions.

The millennia-old physical, mental, and spiritual discipline of yoga has made it possible for me to enhance my ability to handle stress and anxiety and to build my resilience, agility, and stamina. This has not only helped me by supporting my health and well-being, but it has also strengthened my leadership capacity and capability in a large corporate environment. Yoga has been so effective in improving my own life—both at work and at home—that I decided to become certified as an instructor so I could share this passion with others. My goals are to teach people to embrace the principles and practice of yoga beyond the mat and to support their journey toward health and wellness.
