CAP, a B2B company founded on the principle that preventing concussions is about changing the athlete – not the sport, partners with elite sport and health clinics to deliver our programs. Designed to educate and empower athletes to achieve peak athletic and brain performance, unprecedented data capture and analysis is at the core of all our programs.
RAM4 Concussion Prevention is clinically validated and the only technology in the world proven to improve concussion resistance.
CAP Baseline Testing uses Brain Gauge, an objective, accurate brain health test originally developed for NASA and widely used by the US military.
Brain Repair Protocol is a cloud-based management system that provides a blueprint for therapists to more effectively treat concussion patients.
CAP Return to Sport – Work Protocol incorporates the Brain Gauge and RAM4 to test patients neurologically and physically eliminating guesswork.

Kim is an entrepreneur and CEO with a successful track record for launching start-ups, managing R&D teams, and commercializing new and innovative technologies. Her passion, and what gets her out of bed every day with no plans to retire, is about empowering and educating young people to stay safe, at work, leisure, and in sports, and remove barriers to living a happy, healthy, active lifestyle.
Lee Mein, the Grampinator holds the record as the oldest, active fighter with a win. Lee is the owner and head instructor of the Canadian Martial Arts Centre (CMC MMA) established in 1994. CMC MMA trains athletes from the age of 4 and up in Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiujitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.
Many of Canada’s top MMA fighters train there including his son, Jordan Mein, who won two UFC fights in a row and signed with Bellator. Lee is a level 2 certified Arrest and Control Tactics Instructor with Harris International San Diego CA. He holds a Black Belt in Kenpo Karate, Bas Rutten MMA System, and a 2nd degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu.
Lee still competes in Boxing, Kickboxing, MMA, and Brazilian Jiujitsu tournaments and has trained three UFC fighters including his son Jordan Mein. He joined CAP as he is passionate about changing the ineffectual and expensive concussion testing and return protocol in MMA.
Dr. Ace Casiano completed his Specialized Honours in Kinesiology and Health Science from York University and attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, Ontario. While getting his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at CMCC, Ace opened up a strength and conditioning facility in Toronto and worked with a variety of people including youth athletes, semi-pro and pro athletes, and the everyday human whose common goal is to improve their physical capacity, movement and performance.
As a Chiropractor, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, and a Functional Range Conditioning mobility specialist, Ace combines his treatment techniques and training experience to help his patients get away from pain and dysfunction, and restore their mobility, joint resilience, movement capacity and performance.
Dr. Mark Tommerdahl CEO & Co-Founder, Corticalmetrics
Mark Tommerdahl, CEO & Co-Founder of corticalmetrics and a strategic CAP Partner, is a neuroscientist and faculty member at the University of North Carolina. He has a broad range of research interests that center on cortical mechanisms of information processing. His initial studies that made observations via extracellular recordings and optical imaging of stimulus-evoked cortical-cortical interactions in non-human primates led to the development and application of novel human sensory perceptual testing methods and technologies to research across a broad spectrum of neurological disorders. Neurological areas of interest include concussion/TBI, developmental disorders (e.g., autism), aging, and chronic pain. Dr. Tommerdahl is also co-founder of corticalmetrics, a company that is actively developing neurosensory assessment technology that can be widely distributed. Education: B.S., Biology, Davidson College; MS and Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering and Mathematics, University of North Carolina.
Dr. Jim Wilson Intellectual Property Manager, Health and Environmental Technology, Innovate Calgary
Jim conducted the market research and worked closely with CAP to secure the patents for the RAM machine and CAP technology. As Intellectual Property Manager, Health and Environmental Technology, Jim Wilson is responsible for managing a portfolio of new technologies and discoveries. Prior to joining Innovate Calgary, Jim was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and previously the University of California at Davis. His research addressed arthritis and joint injury. As an instructor for the Schulich School of Engineering, at the University of Calgary, he has taught courses in Joint Biomechanics and Medical Device Development. He was the recipient of the University’s 2009 Teaching Excellence Award. Jim also has previous experience in aerospace manufacturing in the manufacturing technology development group at Rolls-Royce in England.
Jim holds a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Calgary, an MSc in Computer Simulation from Coventry University, United Kingdom and a BA in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.
Sports Performance Research Institute New Zealand (SPRINZ) BKin, MSc, PhD at Auckland University of Technology
Dustin is the lead researcher working with CAP to analyze our data from the kinematic response to impulsive loading. By analyzing the relationship between strength performance and the movements of the head we can predict a strategy and protective levels of strength that the athlete can develop to reduce susceptibility to concussions.
Dustin holds a Bachelor of Kinesiology (BKin), Kinesiology and Exercise Science from the University of Calgary, a Master of Science (MSc), Human Performance & Physical Education from Adams State University. He was also the Strength & Conditioning coach at Adams State University for two years.
He is currently completing his Ph.D. at Auckland University of Technology and an Adjunct Instructor at Adams State University.
Enora le Flao
Sports Performance Research Institute New Zealand (SPRINZ) Masters in Biomechanical Engineering, Auckland University of Technology
I am a Frenchie in New Zealand doing my PhD with the AUT Sport Performance Research Institute New Zealand. My research is at the crossroad of engineering and sports science, and I focus on the technology that allows us to measure head motion after a hit to the head. This technology has the potential to help us better understand concussion mechanisms, and maybe one day assist with concussion prevention.
Zach Adolphe Director of Growth
Zach brings a fresh perspective on the latest growth strategies to CAP. Graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Calgary, Zach became a Clean Technology Intern at the Pembina Institute, where he spearheaded the 2017 Climate Summit’s Youth Energy Change Makers Pitch. As an Associate at the Alberta Clean Technology Industry Alliance he helped release the first ever Alberta Clean Technology Industry Report and is the co-founder of the inaugural Alberta Student Energy Summit. During his undergrad, Zach launched Student Energy’s Global Chapter Program – now in countries including the United Kingdom and Nigeria. Zach was a recipient of the 2017 Canadian Youth Environmental Leadership Award and Scholarship for his undergrad work combined with academic excellence.
Andrew Lee RAM Engineer
Andrew holds a Bachelor of Engineering Science in Mechatronics Engineering (BEsc) from Western University and a Masters in Software Engineering (MEng) from the University of Calgary. Having conducted his concussion therapy with CAP in 2018, Andrew was a strong advocate of our concussion programs and joined the team to build the prototype for the RAM machine.
Ramin Fathian Engineering Intern
Ramin graduated from Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran in 2017 with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Mohammad Eghtesad. As an intern for CAP I worked on the Instrumentation design to assess neck injury and concussion. I designed biomedical instruments to assess the risk of neck injury and concussion. These devices were designed to perform impact test and log the values characterizing the impact using inertial sensors and load cells.
