TRUMBULL, Conn., September 14, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Saturday afternoons in autumn mean college sports and the return of amateur athletes to their fields, gyms and stadiums. Student-athletes can stay healthier, heal more easily from soft-tissue injuries, and return to their sport more quickly with ZetrOZ Systems' sustained acoustic medicine (sam®) technology, now covered by secondary insurance for many colleges.
On average, more than 200,000 athletes in major National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sports are injured every year, according to a five-year study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2015.
Researchers found high injury rates across many of the sports kicking off this fall. Among all sports, college football had the highest raw number of injuries - an estimated 47,199 over the five years. It also had one of the highest injury rates of all sports, with 9.2 athletes injured for every 1,000 athlete-exposures to potential injury (one athlete's participation in one competition or one practice).
Women's soccer had the next-highest injury rate among fall sports, with 8.4 injuries per 1,000 athlete-exposure. Among all sports, men's wrestling had the highest injury rate, at 13.1 injuries per 1,000 athlete-exposures. Women's gymnastics, at 10.4 injuries per 1,000 athlete exposures, had the greatest injury rate among women's sports.
Almost one out of four athlete injuries required more than seven days of recuperation before the athlete could return to practice or competition. Nearly half (45%) of all injuries were sprains and strains, and of those injuries, about one in four required a week of recuperation.
ZetrOZ Systems' sustained acoustic medicine (sam®) technology is proven to reduce the recovery period for those kinds of soft-tissue injuries. More than 40 clinical studies have shown that the ZetrOZ sam® X1 and 2.0 devices reduce pain and improve function without using invasive surgery or potentially addictive painkillers.
"We work with college athletic trainers nationwide, and we know that our sam® devices help heal athletes' soft-tissue injuries more quickly and help players return to practices and games sooner," said Dr. George K. Lewis, founder and CEO of ZetrOZ Systems.
A 2022 study, by authors that included three respected college athletic trainers, examined sam® usage by 239 healthcare providers for treating injuries to tendons and ligaments, joints, large muscle groups, and bone. They reported that sam® provided clinical improvement in under two weeks in more than two-thirds of cases (68.9%) and resulted in a 50% reduction in pain medication. The study concluded sam® is an "effective, safe, easy-to-use, noninvasive, comfortable, and versatile therapeutic for healing musculoskeletal injuries."
In addition, a 2022 article published in Open Orthopedics Journal surveyed athletic trainers working in professional, collegiate, and military sports medicine to evaluate ZetrOZ's sam® technology. The study found that sam® is a "fast, simple topical application yielding rapid healing without causing additional trauma to suffering athletes." The study also included follow-up interviews with the athletic trainers. The researchers reported that "Candid input from professional athletic and military ATs shows a consensus that sam® is a superior healing technology."
A 2015 level 4 clinical study by sports medicine experts at Ohio State University and Duke University found sustained acoustic medicine delivered via ZetrOZ's sam® reduced pain and improved strength in patients' medial/lateral elbow tendons and Achilles tendons.
Sustained acoustic medicine works by increasing blood vessel diameters to improve blood flow. That increases oxygenated hemoglobin at the therapy site and removes cytokine enzymes and cellular waste, resulting in more rapid healing and reduced pain.
ZetrOZ's sam® devices are the only FDA-cleared wearable ultrasound units approved for daily use at home. ZetrOZ's technology was developed, in part, with funding from the National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and NASA. ZetrOZ Systems products are designed and manufactured in the United States and are protected by 46 U.S. patents.

The Motor Enclave 'Motomural'
The Motor Enclave 'Motomural' as seen from the East side of I-75.
TAMPA, Fla., September 14, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The Motor Enclave (TME) unveiled Tampa Bay's newest mural today, on the I-75 side of its 37,000 square foot Event Center just North of the I-4 interchange. The mural was designed and executed by prominent Philadelphia-based muralist Glossblack. Branded as the "Motomural," the nearly 5,000 square foot mural is destined to become a landmark at this main interchange to Tampa and Orlando that sees over 142,000 vehicles a day.
The Motor Enclave founder, Brad Oleshansky, collaborated with Glossblack closely on the project, keeping it under wraps until painting began on September 1st. The mural features a combination of motorsports-themed iconography, vintage roadside references and a few related to Tampa history and culture.
"The goal of this mural is to pay homage to many things at once; The Motor Enclave branding, classic Americana, motorsports, patina & graffiti elements, and of course a nod to Tampa. It's a 'favorite things' mural for TME that speaks to how unique they are," said Jimmy McMenamin of Glossblack. "Much of my artwork revolves around balancing color while creating building blocks that tell a larger story. I love all things typography, vintage signage, neon lettering, dynamic shadow/lighting, and retro Americana. For that reason, working with TME was the perfect fit."
"I am thrilled to have this piece of the project come to fruition. It's been a fun process working with Glossblack to make this project come to life," said Oleshansky. "It's been just as fun keeping the artwork a surprise for my team here at TME. But the wait is finally over and what better way to show off our soon-to-open Event Center."
The Motomural is now visible for all to see on the West side of I-75 just North of the I-4 interchange.
Jimmy McMenamin is an artist, muralist & graffiti writer from the Greater Philadelphia area. In 2008, he created Glossblack, LLC as a way to offer his artistic skills to business owners, homeowners, corporations, etc. Glossblack's client list is extensive, having provided wall art for the likes of Disney, Google, Comcast, Red Bull, Under Armour, 76ers, Eagles, Gap, Budweiser, & Dunkin. Today, he can be found in his South Jersey studio painting, screen printing, designing, and planning for upcoming mural work.
