To become the “New Standard” for the human performance testing industry through one-of-a-kind neuromotor analysis.
Hx Innovations® Sports Science is a sports health tech company that uses the power of camera technology with our exclusive movement analytics to measure muscle activity and physical performance, and assess knee injury risk.
Painful life experiences after the recovery from a traumatic leg injury encountered during his first football season as a college freshman in 2000 moved founder and lead scientist Dr. Von Homer, Ph.D to explore and research biomechanical functions, limitations, and abilities of lower extremities. In 2013, his research and experience led him to begin the development of The Homer Technique assessment. This neuromuscular biomechanical evaluation was designed to characterize distal lower extremity balance through internal and external work distribution to determine one’s probability for injury. In the hopes of helping other people avoid injury by encouraging balance and comfort, several discussions with close friends and colleagues encouraged Dr. Homer to explore options of building out supporting technology and services around this innovative evaluation.
After various transitions of ideas and circumstances, the neuroergonomics and biomechanic research, technology and testing company, Hx Innovations, Inc. was formed and Co-Founded with Nicole Homer, MBA in June 2019. Since then, Hx and it’s leadership team have been published in several high profile business articles, won several awards and grants, leader keynote speaking engagements including a TedxWilmington talk, and has serviced several teams such as the Miami Heat, The New England Patriots, The 76ers G-League the Delaware BlueCoats, Caravel Academy Varsity Soccer, Sporting Delaware Soccer Club, St. Vincent St. Mary’s, and more!
