National Intercollegiate Sports Programs benefit from strategic partnership
August 3, 2020 – Valley Forge, PA — A-G Administrators, the sports insurance leader that provides superior solutions to managing the risks associated with student-athlete medical expense programs, is partnering with Sparta Science. Sparta Science is the leader in the application of movement diagnostic software. Using Force Plate Machine Learning (FPML), the Sparta System identifies how you move, and provides individualized, evidence-based plans to help you move better.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, student-athletes are experiencing unprecedented time away from sport, resulting in an increased risk of musculoskeletal injuries upon return. A-G and Sparta are working together to provide a solution that will help measure an individual’s readiness for sport, injury risk, and return-to-play timelines.
Sparta will be offering 10 hours of testing to all current A-G clients. When bundled together, A-G and Sparta can provide up to 48% reduction in surgeries and a possible 45% annual reduction in insurance claims associated with injuries*.
“This is an extraordinary time in the history of sport. With student-athletes returning to activity after such an extended time away, the data suggests a 3-4 time increase in soft tissue injury and the medical expenses that result from it.” commented A-G Administrators’ Chief Marketing Officer, James Shipp, ATC. “A-G is thrilled to partner with Sparta to assist our clients in mitigating these risks and potential expenses.”
