Windsor, VT – Aug 17th, 2015 — The LoveYourBrain Foundation announced today that it has partnered with Vew-Do Balance Boards to provide a fun and innovative way for people with traumatic brain injuries to improve their balance, and their lives.
"I have been using Vew-Do balance boards ever since I started snowboarding and they have been very beneficial in my recovery from a traumatic brain injury," said Kevin Pearce, co-founder of the LoveYourBrain Foundation. "After a TBI, everything becomes unbalanced. Not only your mental state but also your physical state. I am really excited about developing new balance boards tailored specifically for the TBI community."
"Vew-Do has over 25 years of expertise in the design and manufacturing of balance boards, and we are thrilled to be working closely with Kevin and the LoveYourBrain Foundation on products that will really help those recovering from TBI's and other physical injuries." said Brew Moscarello, founder of Balance Designs, Inc., owner of the Vew-Do brand.
Vew-Do Balance Boards have been used by many other professional athletes for rehabilitation and to improve overall athletic performance. Olympic snowboarders and skiers, along with NFL and NHL players have used the balance boards to develop coordination, build core strength, and increase agility.
The LoveYourBrain Foundation brings firsthand experience of the TBI recovery process and a commitment to supporting people with TBI to thrive physically and emotionally. These boards will be widely distributed, from rehabilitation centers, medical facilities, to individuals' homes and will be available through both www.VewDo.com and www.LoveYourBrain.com starting in October.
The LoveYourBrain Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for people affected by traumatic brain injury and raise awareness about the importance of overall brain health. They are a growing family of like-minded individuals who believe that the brain is the most important piece of equipment. Their message— LoveYourBrain—embodies a positive approach to brain injury prevention, recovery, and brain health.
Brothers Kevin Pearce and Adam Pearce established LoveYourBrain Foundation, in 2014. This past year marks the fourth year anniversary since Kevin Pearce suffered a near fatal traumatic brain injury while training for the 2010 winter Olympics. Kevin's remarkable road to recovery has inspired millions: through the HBO documentary "The Crash Reel," Kevin's speaking engagements, and now, through the programs pioneered by the LoveYourBrain Foundation.
