About Adolescent Sports Metrics

Better Data + Better Research = A Better Future for All Children!

Adolescent Sports Metrics (ASM) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to better define what "normal" (i.e. healthy) looks like in adolescent children. ASM’s mission is to collect health and vital sign data from young athletes during UIL Pre-Participation Evaluations in order to establish “normal” data ranges within this demographic group. Baseline data ranges are not currently available for various reasons, primarily because this age group does not see healthcare providers unless ill. As a result, the health data collected during sick visits do not improve diagnoses for providers or outcomes for sick children. By providing better formative health data to healthcare providers and researchers, we believe we will enable improved information and outcomes for providers as well as young patients. 

Thank you for your generosity and support of our research!

Why Choose ASM

We are the Platinum Level health assessment we would want for our own children.  Please let us serve your children with the same high quality assessment and help us work to improve medical outcomes for all children.


ASM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working under an IRB (research) collecting data to establish normal reference ranges on the pediatric and adolescent demographic.  All students that participate are de-identified, meaning none of the data collected can be connected to their identity which completely preserves participant privacy.


By allowing us to serve your children, you will allow us to serve everyone's children in the future with better data, for better research and a better future!

Our Services

Pre-Participation Physical

image13

Sports Physical based on basic UIL Pre-Participation Physical.



Vitals

Blood Pressure, Heart rate, Pulse Ox, Sp02

Blood Pressure, HR, Pulse OX are all taken bilaterally along with the temperature. The blood pressure is taken with Omron equipment in a seated position to stay consistent with AMA guidelines.

Hearing

Hearing, Ears

This testing is done using a digital hearing test that test baseline hearing unilaterally, bilaterally, as well as, sound to noise ratio.  Including Otoscopic exam with pictures. 

Objective Testing with Objective Findings

Appearance and Postural Analysis

Posture, Scoliosis, Postural Analysis

Postural Assessment is a guide to determining muscular or fascial imbalance and whether that imbalance contributes to a patient's pain or dysfunction 

Baseline Concussion Testing

Concussion, Scat5

Preseason SCAT5 baseline testing can be useful for interpreting post-injury test scores.

CAPS® (Balance Testing)

image14

It is well established in the scientific literature that even mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBIs) affect balance; for this reason, tasks involving balance and coordination are commonly used to determine neurological function in sports-related concussion.

JTECH ROM Testing

Range of Motion, ROM

Assessment of sport-specific movement demands thorough musculoskeletal screening and functional performance testing. This is essential for rehabilitation professionals.

JTECH Motor (Strength) Testing

Motor Testing, Strength Testing

Strength testing can provide crucial insight into a person's functional abilities and assist in rehabilitation if injured.

Vision Sreening

Vision, eye exam

Not only is the vision screened for appropriate referral but the pupil sizes are digitally measured and assist with baseline concussion comparison.

Objective Testing with Objective Findings

Fundoscopic (Ophthalmoscopic) Exam

eye exam, retina, fundus

The retina is the only portion of the central nervous system visible from the exterior. Likewise the fundus is the only location where vasculature can be visualized.  The fundoscopic exam can discover pathological process otherwise invisible and being able to stage both diabetes and hypertension. 

Otoscopy (Ear Examination)

Ear exam, eardrum, otoscope, ostoscopic

 This is performed in order to examine the 'external auditory canal' – the tunnel that leads from the outer ear (pinna) to the eardrum.  Inspection of the eardrum can also provide a lot of information about what's happening within the middle ear – the space within the skull where the hearing and balance mechanisms are situated.

Tanner Scale

Tanner, Growth, staging

The scale defines physical measurements of development based on external primary and secondary sex characteristics, such as the size of the breasts, genitals, testicular volume and development of pubic hair. The complex series of biologic transitions are known as puberty, and these changes may impact psychosocial factors. 

ECG/EKG

ECG, EKG, Cardiovascular, Heart

Accurate ECG interpretation in athletes requires adequate training and an attention to detail to distinguish physiological ECG findings from abnormal ECG findings that might indicate the presence of cardiac pathology. The international consensus standards presented on ECG interpretation and the evaluation of ECG abnormalities serve as an important foundation for improving the quality of cardiovascular care of athletes. As new scientific data become available, revision of these recommendations may be necessary to further advance the accuracy of ECG interpretation in the athletic population. 

Spirometry Testing (Lung)

elite athletes, spirometry, lung volumes

Physical activity leads to adaptive changes in lung function.  There is a need for specific consideration of different respiratory ‘pattern’ development in different types of sport.

Labs (QUEST Diagnostics)

labs, blood analysis, serum

CBC w/differential, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Lipid Profile, TSH w/ reflex to free T-4, Iron Studies (non-specific test), IBC, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, HGB A1C, Sickle Cell screen (appropriate demographic). Complimentary for the first 100 students per grade year, per gender.
