In the sense of the reverberations from such an institute and that model, what we're trying to do is show that if you use validated outcome metrics and can show a change, an improvement in an individual's condition based on accepted standardized metrics. That's a very important piece of what we ultimately then can disseminate to others. Broadcast. And actually help by taking that data and putting it into de-identified data sets nationwide so that other organizations can compare their products to ours and we can actually then also do multi-centered trials of various approaches to see what works and what doesn't work. So there are national data sets that are just for that purpose around traumatic brain injury. And so we're just now reaching the data opportunity in terms of volume. That we can then take that data from patients de-identify it, take it in ... take names and so forth often and plug that data into those datasets to compare outcome metrics with nationwide ... with centers all across the country. That's a very important part of this. This video was produced by BrainLine thanks to generous support from the Infinite Hero Foundation.
