NFL Alumni Medical Research Foundation
COGNITIVE RENEWAL THERAPY STUDY

About Us

The NFL Alumni Medical Research Foundation (dba of the NFL Alumni Foundation) has agreed to participate in its first study using a NON-invasive therapy that has the potential of benefiting our members for the rest of their lives.

Study Purpose

Investigations

Investigate the effects of a NON-invasive photo modulation therapy on the brain function of players who had experienced a TBI during their career.

Therapy

You will wear a patch the size of a small band aid that you change daily. This NON-invasive therapy has been shown to renew brain function in previous studies.

Requirements

Inclusion Requirement

A participant had one diagnosed TBI (concussion) during their playing career.

Your initial exam will be under your insurance. There will be $0 cost to you. Whatever your insurance pays will be fully accepted. All further diagnostics and supplies are covered in full by the study.

Study Method

Diagnosis

Each participant will be given 4 tests during each of 3 visits: Initial visit day 1, 2nd at 45 days, 3rd at 90 days.

Therapy: Daily wear Lifewave patch
Length: 90 Days

Previous Study

Effect of LifeWave X39TM Patches on Brain 

Benefits

We are investigating these

  • Improvement of quality of life for brain function and pain.
  • Improved cognitive function.
  • Pain relief without any medication.
  • The full body MRI may identify any ailments in other areas of your body that have not developed any symptoms yet.

Alumni’s benefit

  • Our mission is to improve the lives of our members.
  • This is a significant opportunity to identify a NON-Invasive therapy that improves brain function and reduces pain without medication.

Q&A

What effects does the Lifewave Patch shown in other studies?
  • Reduction in blood pressure
  • Improves quality of sleep.
  • Increased vitality.
  • Improved short term memory.
  • Improved Heart Rate Variability at significance
  • Produced anti-inflammatory based on amino acid results
Any side effects?

None if used as directed

Where am I tested?

We have a NYC imaging facility where your tests will be run

Investigation Process

Full body MRI

At your initial exam you will be given a full body MRI. The MRI can detect other injuries and potential ailments prior to any symptoms.

Data Analysis

Multiple data analysis will allow physiological, clinical and psychological assessment of TBI intervention

METRICS

WHY?

EXAMPLES

EEG

Evidence of demonstrating changes in brain’s electrical activity and related disorders

  • Seizures
  • Sleep disorders

MRI

Brain’s anatomical & volumetric analysis allowing the identification of pre and post intervention changes and possible impact on emotional, cognitive and motor symptoms

  • Structures associated to memory impairment

  • Lesions potentially associated with tremors and motor symptoms

  • Pain & sensorial symptoms

NEUROLOGY &
PSYCHOLOGY

Identification of clinical and/or psychological TBI associated symptoms improvement

  • Memory

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Cognitive functions

  • Pain

  • Quality of life
