Scott Anderson, Director of Athletic Training at Stanford joins growing neuro-technology team in expansion

Boston, MA—7/25/17—SyncThink, a world leader in neuro-technology and developer of revolutionary eye-tracking technology practices with foundational IP in metrics and devices, the hire of Scott Anderson of Stanford University and the development of a permanent office in Palo Alto. SyncThink will be expanding the company West through strategic hires to further the next generation concussion management solution EYE-SYNC, and more.

Scott Anderson, former clinical advisor and now Chief Customer Officer at SyncThink, is a Certified Athletic Trainer, and while at Stanford, worked closely with SyncThink founder and Chief Science Officer Jamshid Ghajar MD, PhD in the multidisciplinary research of sport related head injuries and the development and integration of technology to improve patient outcomes. In addition to his expertise in the EYE-SYNC technology, he brings both clinical and management specialty to the SyncThink team as it continues to grow the applications of the EYE-SYNC technology and its customer base.

“It is truly a pleasure to join the team at SyncThink, and to continue to progress the groundbreaking work being done by Dr. Ghajar,” Anderson said. “In the three years I have been using the EYE-SYNC technology, I have repeatedly stated that the solution is a game changer, and I look forward to adding my experience to the team as we continue to objectively measure and improve disorientation disorders for so many. Being able to do so in my own backyard here in Palo Alto just makes it even more exciting.”

The Palo Alto office for SyncThink will serve as the center of the customer success department and is a strategic move for the company to have a location near the talent of Stanford University, like Anderson. Specializing in injury prevention, head injuries, and technological integration into athletic training programs, Anderson has focused his career on the safety of athletes and how to further it. This, along with his certifications and 10 year career with Stanford, brings great knowledge and experience to the SyncThink team as he moves into a full-time role.

“It is a really exciting time for us here at SyncThink. On the heels of our latest technology release, to be able to hire someone of Scott’s caliber is a dream come true,” CEO of SyncThink Ernest Santin said, “Not only is Scott the most advanced user of our technology, he is extremely well respected and influential in the industry and we believe his addition will put us in a better position moving forward, as we establish our initial footprint in Silicon Valley. We look forward to expanding the company in Palo Alto.”

The EYE-SYNC platform is the first device to be able to provide objective metrics assessing ocular-motor and vestibular impairments. These two subtype assessments on the sidelines are key to ensuring that disoriented athletes are not sent back into play and exposed to additional risk of injury.

SyncThink will be hiring at multiple positions in the Palo Alto office in addition to hires already in place. For more information please visit:
