UBC Kinesiology PhD student named top 30 under 30 by BC Business

Congratulations to UBC Kinesiology PhD student, Harrison Brown, on being named to the 2017 BC Business Top 30 under 30 List!

Harrison Brown is a 4th Year PhD student, working with Dr. Jean-Sebastien Blouin in the Sensorimotor Physiology Lab. He is being recognized for his efforts to quantify post-concussion balance using inexpensive sensors. This work led to the launching of HeadCheck Health in 2013. 

Harrison Brown, Co-Founder & CEO of HeadCheck Health

‘The Vancouver-based company’s core product, an iOS mobile app for sports teams, quickly performs a concussion assessment covering eight areas, including symptoms, balance and cognitive function. Unlike rival offerings, HeadCheck is a platform for what the research shows to be the best tests, Brown explains. The company also offers unlimited testing for a flat annual fee. Besides North American pro and semipro teams and collegiate programs, HeadCheck targets the high-school, youth and recreational market with educational discounts. “We want to make something that provides value to everybody,” Brown says’. – Excerpt from the BC Business Profile.
