COVD Meeting 2018


The COVD meeting is off to a rousing start!  Congratulations to all new Fellows and COVTs (there are nearly 60 in aggregate!), one of whom is a mentee from New Jersey, Dr. Kirti Patel.

The Wednesday evening opening VDR Symposium featured Dean Riddle, Applied Sports Scientist of the Seattle Seahawks who addressed the data ecosystem in sports.

Due to the proprietary and confidential nature of some of Mr. Riddle’s material, there was no recording of the session permitted.  However a number of people in the hospitality suite after the symposium asked me to share some of the information I presented, in particular from the book on The Art of Sports Science that I cited – so here are the pertinent slides:

Dean Riddle worked for Nike prior to joining the Seahawks, and has experience with the now defunct sensory station that morphed into Senaptec.  Following his presentation, we linked COVD Past-President and number 3 Seahawks fan Dr. Nancy Torgerson, with Dean to further explore how visual function should factor into the data ecosystem in sports – from drafting players to managing the visual sequelae of concussions.
