Do you feel as though your life is an endless cycle of struggle, pain, heartache, and loss? End your suffering and reach Nirvana with Buddha and The Bodhi! Learn the teachings and tools of Buddhism in this 3D spiritual realm underneath the very bodhi tree where Siddhartha Gautama reached enlightenment becoming The Buddha. Begin your path to Buddhahood by identifying the root causes of suffering. Once we understand suffering, The Buddha presents a decision. To continue suffering, or to choose happiness? Once happy, we are still not quite to Buddhahood. We must learn to forgive. Not others necessarily, but ourselves for our past mistakes and regrets. And finally, we master the art of compassion. Through loving kindness, we become compassionate beings and may end the suffering of others. Featuring 10 five-minute meditations. Affirm fearlessness, freedom, happiness, forgiveness, and compassion during the affirmation meditations. Awaken soul with the 5 nature based meditations including: Ocean waves, forest jungle, rain, summer thunder, and sunny marshland. Also featured are daily Buddha quotes of wisdom, spiritual journey blog, and affirmation badges of spiritual growth. Earn your way to Buddhahood through the "I am" affirmation series. Confront your egoic desires and affirm fearlessness! Earn the badge of the grizzly bear with the "I am fearless" affirmation. Identify and accept loss as a part of life. Earn the badge of the raven, the badge of freedom! Having identified the root causes of suffering, we move onto to the decision, to continue suffering, or to be happy? If you choose to be happy, you will earn the badge of the butterfly while beginning the cultivation of peace and joy in your life. Once happy and joyful, the path to Nirvana is still incomplete. We must forgive. Not what others have done to us, but what we have done to ourselves. We must love and forgive our ego for the abuse it has caused to our body, mind, and soul. With this forgiveness, we earn the badge of the husky. And finally, we need to be compassionate beings. Confront yet another decision on the path to Nirvana. To save the dragonfly trapped in a box, or to turn away and allow a slow death to that sentient being: "The decision is up to you my friend" - The Buddha. Complete the path and reach... Nirvana!

The Concussion Recognition & Response™ App
Developed by Gerard A. Gioia, PhD, and Jason Mihalik, PhD
The Concussion Recognition & Response™ app is a new tool that helps coaches and parents recognize whether an individual is exhibiting/reporting the signs and symptoms of a suspected concussion. The app allows a coach or parent to respond quickly and appropriately to this potentially serious medical situation. In less than 5 minutes, the user can go through a checklist of possible signs/symptoms to determine whether to remove the child from play and the need for further medical examination. The app allows users to record pertinent information regarding a child with a suspected concussion and share that information via email with health care professionals; it also provides a system for post-injury follow-up. With answers to Frequently Asked Questions for parents and coaches, this tool is an invaluable guide for learning about concussions.
Benefits and Features:
Concussion Recognition and Response
Using information from the CDC’s “Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports” program, the app guides users through a set of questions to determine the likelihood of a suspected concussion based on observations by the parent or coach as well as symptoms reported by the athlete. In addition to the child’s name, age, gender, and sport, the location of the injury is tracked by the device’s GPS, and its camera can be used to photograph the injury. Along with the answers to the guided questions, this information can be emailed to a health care provider to provide accurate documentation of the child’s condition at the time of the injury.
Home Symptom Monitoring (HSM)
After following up with health care providers, the app allows a parent or caregiver to record a child’s symptoms through periodic evaluations, which are tracked in the hours, days, or weeks following an injury. The information compiled using the HSM can then be emailed to the health care professionals, providing an update on the child’s recovery.
Based on information from the CDC, the Return-to-Play Guide helps to protect children and athletes from further injury by guiding them through a daily exercise routine that assists in their ability to return to play. Through a five-step, tiered workout routine and in collaboration with the child’s health care provider, parents and coaches can ensure that the child is able to handle added exercise without further injury or discomfort.
The app’s concussion information section helps coaches and parents to make an informed decision regarding how to proceed after a child’s injury. Provided by authors Gerard A. Gioia and Jason Mihalik, concussion specialists from the Children’s National Medical Center and the Matthew A. Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center, this feature includes answers to Frequently Asked Questions for coaches and parents.
Acute Concussion Evaluation (ACE) Post-Concussion Home/School Instructions
Included with the app is a concussion overview page that users can share with other coaches, parents, or athletes. This overview, which can be sent directly from the mobile device via email, is an excellent way to share important information about how to recognize and respond to head injuries.

Are you recovering from a concussion? Has your doctor asked you to keep track of your activities and your symptoms as you work through a concussion recovery program?
Wouldn’t it be great to have an easy way to keep track of your progress, and share that information with your healthcare team to make your follow-up appointments more productive?
Get started by entering the date and details of your injury in Return2Play. Then as you progress through the recovery protocol, under the direction of a physician, enter your activities, symptoms & their severity, and your notes along the way. You can even enter appointment dates and take notes right in the app! Email your progress history in chronological order to your physician, trainer or coach.
Return2Play also includes educational material about concussion and the BRAIN recovery protocol.
Return2Play was designed with the patient and healthcare team in mind. Our goal is to create a more efficient clinic appointment that leads to better management of the injury and safe return to play decisions.
Michigan NeuroSport is one of only a handful of comprehensive programs in the country dedicated to the neurological concerns of athletes. Michigan NeuroSport specializes in the treatment and prevention of neurological sports injuries, as well as the management of primary neurological diseases that affect athletic performance.

People choose two different treatments to test. The Trialist App will randomize when they take their treatments and provides reminders when to take each treatment. At the end of the personalized experiment the App will display what graphs showing which treatment were more effective.
People perform their own clinical trial with personalized results tailored to their symptoms.
*Daily tracking of pain, sleep disturbance, fatigue, drowsiness, constipation, and cognitive functioning
*Optional daily tracking of neuropathic pain for patients with neuropathic pain (e.g., pain accompanied by burning, pins and needles, itching, or a sensitive or unpleasant sensation on the skin)
*Graphs that display pain levels and related symptoms over time
*Daily reminders to take medication/s
Reminders to switch between treatments throughout the personalized experiment
When visiting their doctor, patients discuss their results and use them to determine what treatments work best for them.
This App was developed by researchers from the University of California, Davis and University of California, San Francisco.
