New Partnership Advances True Precision Medicine

30 November 2021

Springbok Analytics and Owens Recovery Science team up to revolutionize the rehabilitation of muscle injury.

(Charlottesville, VA / San Antonio, TX) – Owens Recovery Science (ORS), the global leader in educating providers in the science of Personalized Blood Flow Restriction (PBFR), proudly announces its partnership with Springbok Analytics, a digital health tech company that develops first-to-market clinical decision support tools for precision muscle health. This unique partnership gives ORS access to holistic, objective muscle data generated by Springbok’s AI-powered platform that allows PBFR, a paradigm shifting intervention for injury rehabilitation, to further enable personalized, targeted physical therapy.

Founded and led by Johnny Owens, MPT, former Chief of Human Performance Optimization at the Center for the Intrepid, ORS works with rehabilitation professionals in a wide range of organizations – professional and collegiate sports teams, military and civilian healthcare systems, and orthopedic practices – around the world. It also currently manages a research portfolio of over 40 clinical trials being conducted worldwide to study the effects of PBFR rehabilitation in clinical populations. PBFR has far-reaching applications for individuals recovering from injury or surgery who are unable to tolerate heavy loads during rehabilitation, which can limit their ability to build muscle mass and strength. By applying a PBFR tourniquet briefly and intermittently to an exercising limb, the rehabilitation professional can help the patient achieve substantial muscle strength and endurance improvements utilizing very low loads.

Springbok provides precise, objective data analysis about musculature, giving health and wellness providers complete confidence when making essential decisions to reduce the risk of injury, improve physical therapy and rehabilitation, and optimize performance across their populations. By rapidly transforming magnetic resonance images (MRI) into holistic, interactive 3D models, Springbok’s revolutionary AI-driven technology enables true precision medicine.

By integrating Springbok analyses with PBFR therapy, health and wellness providers can deliver more effective treatment programs – improving patient outcomes in physical therapy, injury recovery, athletic performance, and sports medicine.

Owens said of the partnership: “Springbok’s technology is unbelievable. This is something that has been missing for quite some time as an objective measure of muscle asymmetries and changes. It goes far beyond the rudimentary, subjective tools we used to have and helps us get to the future of personalized patient care much faster. We are very thoughtful about who we partner with, and only interested in working with technologies that are evidence-based, which is why we are pleased to be working with Springbok.”

Scott Magargee, CEO of Springbok, added: “We are extremely excited to be working with Johnny’s team at Owens Recovery Science given their expertise and reputation in the field of injury rehabilitation. We know that our data, combined with PBFR and the advancements that ORS continues to make with this technique, can revolutionize patient care and improve musculoskeletal health across so many demographics. Beyond that, we always want to engage with organizations that closely adhere to the science in delivering patient care, and ORS fits very well within that profile given their approach.” 

Data-driven decisions are becoming increasingly essential in precision medicine. From personalized athletic training to customized care and rehabilitation plans based on a person’s individual physiology, acquiring precise data is the key. The ORS and Springbok partnership will give providers access to this data, allowing healthcare to move away from a one-size-fits-all approach to a care model that focuses on the individual.
