SUJI BFR – Michael MacPherson

SUJI Blood Flow Restriction or BFR is changing the game with its AI-powered app. Dr. Michael MacPherson joins me and Lisette Guerrero to learn more about our new gear.

What is your 10-second sales pitch for Suji BFR?

A portable, affordable, and easy-to-use gold standard, AI-powered BFR technology

The affordability of the device is one reason we chose to add Suji BFR.  Discuss current pricing.

Suji has found the middle ground. We are data-driven for incredible accuracy at an affordable price, never before seen in the BFR space. 

Let's get into the app, it is one of the big differences from the Delphi unit we have.

Our AI-powered app automatically calculates LOP for the clinician and then saves that data to a patient/athlete profile, saving at least 3-5 minutes every BFR session. The AI-powered calibration process is also incredibly robust. 

All patient/athlete data is stored in a HIPAA-compliant cloud that lives in your institution. A Suji institution is your team or clinic where all your Data lives. Only you have access to it as the administrator. With Suji, you only have to calibrate as often as you deem necessary. 

Discuss the continuous monitoring vs the detachable hose.

With Suji Pro and its real-time pressure adjustments, you won’t need to attach the hose to adjust the pressure within the cuff.

With Suji Pro, you’ll be able to adjust the pressure on the pump in real-time. 
Suji BFR Pro – what should we expect? Suji Pro is Lighter, Smaller, and Hoseless.

Our users are passionate about our portability and our customizable in-app recovery sessions so we’ve made advancements in both areas. Our users also expressed the desire for real-time pressure control without attaching hoses and a pump, so you can expect greater control with Suji Pro without breaking the bank.

Backboarding the Injured Athlete

Backboarding the injured athlete is an ever-evolving skill. Dr. Matt Camarillo discusses it live at the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Update

Matt Camarillo, Backboarding

How common are spinal cord injuries?

-9-10% of injuries are spinal. About 12,000 nationally.

Looking at physicals I have a couple of athletes with previous spinal cord injuries. What are some of the things that I should be more aware of when taking care of these athletes? 

-Usually due to trauma or born with cervical stenosis. 

-Should have a spine surgeon associated with the athletic population

We talk about spinal cord injuries, and the first thing we think about is football. We think that it is equipment-heavy and collision-based and talk about equipment removal for that. But what is the instance in other sports?

-Happens in lacrosse, gymnastics, hockey, soccer, baseball, and basketball.

-Helmet and shoulder pads keep them in alignment then leave it on. 

-If only a helmet probably needs to come off. 

These spinal cord injuries, I believe you mentioned there are about 12,000 injuries per year. Are these spinal injuries with awareness in education are we increasing these or decreasing these?

-Since 1975 they have gone down. 

-A lot of spinal injuries come from automobile accidents. 

Is there a reason for that?

-Awareness, and if it goes away the numbers will go up again. 

Moving back into narrowing down into more of an athletic training setting when working with sport athletes for example what would be our initial assessment and what would be some red flags to actually move the person onto a spine board?

-Big trauma like a head-on hit you want to be careful. 

-Clinical judgment.

-numbness bilaterally 

The athlete just has a lot of pain. 

-Trust your gut

So once you decide to stabilize someone, I know you talked about two methods to stabilize, but what is your preferred method?

-6 man lift

-If you don’t have enough hands, nobody will fault you for doing a log roll. 

When is it appropriate to move the neck into neutral?

-It is always ok as long as you do the head or trap squeeze.

-You want to make sure you have access to the airway. 

Can you talk a little bit about the difference between a head or trap squeeze?

– head squeeze is more about putting you hands around the athletes head or helmet

-trap squeeze where you are putting your thumbs and finger around someone's traps and gives you more stability because you also have to add in the fatigue factor. 

-Trap squeeze is more stable

Be aware that clothing could cause you to slip while holding a helmet.

I think it comes down to practice and figuring out how everything works. Because once you get it down, then when all that emotion going, if you practice over and over again it just becomes a routine. 

What are some tips you have for someone who is working with an equipment-intensive sport, like hockey, that they are not familiar with the equipment?

-Practice

-Use equipment managers to become familiar with equipment. 

What does it look like once they are at the hospital?

-equipment removal and go into a cervical collar. 

-Then straight to a CT scan is #1. 

-Transport to a level 1 hospital because you don’t want to have to move to multiple locations. 

Can you talk about differences between places that have stopped using spine boarding techniques like in motorcycle accidents?

-Two different mechanisms and two different thoughts.

-Make sure everyone is on the same page

-You can always ask to talk to a supervisor because these are generally big EMS areas and you can’t control what everyone does. 

Can you talk about the order you take the piece off of the helmet?

-Side pieces off first. Allows to flip and gives access to the airway

CPR with shoulder pads. With a spinal cord injury and you are having to do CPR and you are removing the equipment, you would leave the shoulder pads in place as long as you open them up?

-Open them

-If getting into CPR take them off because it has become life-threatening. 

Do you have any recommendations for an AT who does not have a lot of volunteers or staff and might be working alone? 

You have coaches. Train the coaches. Coaches are always there. Make sure your coaches are in line with helping you. 

The highest incidents seem to be in high school/middle school. Can you talk about why?

-Proper tackling technique

-Old equipment

Is there anything else we didn’t touch upon that you wanted to add?

-Education and preparation are the biggest things.

Protect3D – 3D Printed Braces

Protect3D joins medicine and technology to help Athletes return to the sport safer and maybe faster. Kevin Gehsmann joins me to share their story and how Athletic Trainers can get their athletes braced.

Protect3D

Where did the idea come from?

Engineering student

Liked 3D printing

Daniel Jones, the quarterback at Duke, went down with a clavicle fracture. They decided their engineering project would help Daniel and other elite athletes needing protection.

Customized for his unique needs and ROM

What has been the most difficult hurdle for Protect3d?

In the early days, we were recognized by the NFL and won $50,000 and Superbowl tickets.

The pandemic caused a lot of challenges.

Every device we make has a positive impact on the athlete and their performance

Share a success story you enjoy.

Clavicle pads reduce the risk of re-injury and increase the confidence of the player and health care team.

It is also the original pad or brace that birthed the idea.

Outside of your own clinics where have you had doctors adapting this style of bracing?

We started with elite athletes and have worked with orthopedic surgeons and athletic trainers.

An ankle/foot orthotic is a new brace to help with foot drop.

We had a D1 athlete participate in games with a Protect3D brace for foot drop. 

What do you see as a hurdle for secondary setting adoption of Protect3d braces?

The cost of the product is one hurdle.

Setting up a system for billing on demand can be an obstacle as well.

Are these braces something that could be printed on your everyday, at-home printer?

Due to the material, printer, and the need to control different variables as a medical device, they are not currently printed at home devices.

There may be options in the future as we grow and develop.

Want to test out Protect3D?

Have an athlete needing a brace?

Willing to give me your honest feedback on the podcast?

Send me an email and maybe follow it up with a social media post.

Give me the story (protect patient privacy)

If it works out then we will collaborate to get you a custom 3D-printed brace for your athlete.

Work Right Northwest – Jody Moore

Work Right Northwest was the best fit for Jody during his current stage of life. He loves the industrial setting and the support the company offers for personal growth.

Jody, Start with your AT story.

From Waco

Was not enjoying playing football and quit to become the student AT for softball.

Chris Hargrove was the AT that me under his wing

Graduated from Baylor as an AT working with some legendary ATs like Mike Simms

Jody moved to Lincoln Nebraska to get a master’s degree and work with their Track & Field teams.

2007-2009 did a fellowship with US Olympic and Paralympic Track and Field.

That led to internships with USA teams.

He has worked with a lot of providers throughout the US and learned different perspectives as well as made a lot of connections.

13-year Outreach Coordinator at BSW

2012 I began the GA partnership with Baylor and grew the program to about 16 schools.

How does WorkRight fit into that?

Auto industry, shipping and delivery, food, manufacturing, and warehouses across the United States.

We focus on being proactive with industrial athletes.

These workers are at the same station doing the same repetitive motions for 8-10 hours per day.

We are limited to OSHA first aid guidelines.

There are plenty of at-home exercise options or opportunities.

Better posture.

Improved hydration.

Early symptom intervention – 15-minute eval on site.

Tell me a few stories

Often times the job is the first time the workers have benefits that include healthcare.

We provide a list of healthcare coverage professionals in the area and establish relationships with them to help facilitate care.

One line worker was having continued upper trap and cervical issues.  After a few visits, he was able to work pain-free.

One of our ladies had posture issues and we were basically the only medical option for her. 

I have thought about how I could change into the industrial setting.  Walk me through the process.

We work 4/10s with someone on duty 24/7 

Mon-Friday. *dependent on site*

We do a lot of 3-day weekends.

Vacation time: can accrue up to 2 weeks of vacation time

Holidays: get a lot of major holidays off…but this is site-dependent too.

Manual therapy skills are important.

Taping and first aid skills are important.

Start learning the lingo.

Visit LearnRightNW.com and take the entry-level course.

How do you build connections with clients at Work Right NW?

Listening

Seeing them at their job

What do I need to consider before making the move?

Making that big of a change will come with some hiccups.

Research the company

Know the details

Know their injury software

Learn the lingo

OSHA first aid principles

  • One of my biggest deciding factors was their personal growth support.

Pro Oxygen KT Tape with Dr. Stark

Dr. Shea Stark works KT Tape into her daily practice of treating patients as a chiropractor. KT Tape recently released the ProOxygen tape and her patients seem to like it.

Christmas Sale

KT will hold its 12 Days of KT in December. On November 30, the 12 Days of KT will be announced; it is a grand prize giveaway where every purchase on-site between Dec 1-Dec 12 equals one entry for the grand prize giveaway. On Monday, December 4,  the KT Pro Oxygen Tape Pro Oxygen will be highlighted as a great gift for the endurance dad who shows everyone up at his weekend Ironman events. You can visit https://www.kttape.com/ to enter the 12 Days of KT for the chance to win a Grand Prize Giveaway.

Dr. Stark, what is your favorite use of KT Tape?

Shoulders and knees

KT Tape is a supportive tape and not a structural tape.

It is less of a restrictive tape.

Joint decompression

What is your least favorite?

I do not like to use it around the feet or hands because it does not hold up well.

Taping in a crease can really irritate the skin.

A lot of patients record the taping so they can replicate

Tips and Tricks

Clean the skin with soap and water or hand sanitizer

Make sure the skin is clean and DRY

Do not stretch the ends or anchors

  • Increases irritation and blisters

Tape doesn't stick well to itself

Tape doesn’t stick well to hair

It is a heat-activated adhesive so don't take it off while hot and sweaty or in the shower.

How do you feel about Tapes that have a heating or cooling effect?

Some have a menthol incorporated into the tape but that can cause irritation

These effects are for the skin and tricking the skin.

KT Tape recently launched the Pro Oxygen. Can you explain how the Pro Oxygen works and its benefits?

Patients seem to love it

It is an infrared powder infused into the tape and reflects the body's own heat as infrared heat.

You do not feel the heat but it helps with the oxygenation of the cells.

This can help keep the oxygen flowing during endurance-type sports.

It has the pro adhesive that will last 4-7 days

It is heat-activated, so rub it in

Give it 5-10 minutes to set up

Over-stretching is a big problem

If you stretch the tissue you won't need to pull as much on the tape

Slight forward bend when applying to the back…

Knee – put the knee into 90 degrees so you stretch the tissue
