X2 Biosystems to Deliver Its Concussion Software to Major League Soccer

June 11, 2014

X2 Biosystems enters into an agreement with Major League Soccer (MLS) to supply its Integrated Concussion Evaluation (ICE) software application for MLS teams during the 2014 soccer season.

According to a release from the Company, the X2 ICE is a touch- screen based application built for iOS7 and Windows 8 operating systems and is equally suitable for use at the field of play or in clinical office settings. By harnessing the power of cloud computing, the X2 ICE securely provides concussion assessment data and allows authorized team health care providers instant access to each of their players' past and present information.

"Working with MLS allowed us to create an application specifically tailored to the league's needs," said Dr. Ed Mlinek, X2 chief of clinical affairs. "The resulting application embodies MLS' specific medical protocols and can be customized to conform to the league's evolving standards in the future."

Ten MLS teams will use the X2 software during the 2014 season with anticipation of adoption by the entire league in 2015. All 32 teams in the National Football League (NFL) used the NFL version of the X2 ICE last season.

"We anticipate that using X2 ICE will standardize and provide more efficient concussion care for all MLS players," said Dr. Echemendia. " The platform will allow team medical staff to have instant access to players' historical data and provide future opportunities for assessment in different languages."

X2 Biosystems is a science and technology company offering systems for management of Sports Brain Injury.
