Dr. Jessica Greaux started Press Play Analysis to give athletes the ability to bring their Sports Medicine team and their coaching team together to one place in order to collaborate and enhance the athlete's performance and eliminate the weak links that may lead to injury. Press Play Analysis upload's the athlete's video with a biomechanical analysis to Press Play's website where the athlete can login with a password, download the video, rip it onto a CD or DVD, print key points, and share it with his/her chiropractor, physical therapist, medical provider, massage therapist, personal trainer, or coach. The athlete's medical and coaching teams can then make comments and collaborate right on the website to enhance performance and rehabilitate injuries. This is an ideal solution for a team like BATC to bring their coaches and medical providers together to communicate about the individual athlete.
