With a diverse network of talented engineers, designers and medical professionals behind them, Perseus Athletics is led by the vision of Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist Dr. Brian McKeon and VP of Business Development John Kelly.
Perseus Athletics™ is the vision of Brian P. McKeon, MD, a talented orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine specialist and Chief Medical Officer/Team Physician for the Boston Celtics.
"In my practice, I treat professional athletes, ballet dancers and a range of individuals who live active lifestyles," says Dr. McKeon. "I understand the importance of proper biomechanics and the role of conditioning in injury prevention. I see a lot of stress injuries in my practice—they can happen to anyone."
Dr. McKeon also applies his expertise in the corporate world, where he consults on return-to-work and occupational health issues. And, he still finds time to take his research into the lab, where he studies articular cartilage—the smooth tissue that lines the joints.
Today Dr. McKeon balances his scientific investigation with the development of products that prevent injury and support athletic performance. The Perseus PostureTek™ system, which represents a revolution in biofeedback technology, is the result of extensive research by orthopedic surgeons and engineers.
"We know poor posture leads to pain and injury," notes Dr. McKeon, "which is why the PostureTek line has appeal to everyone from laptop-users to weight-lifters."
And as an avid sportsman, Dr. McKeon designed The Anchor® golf training aid to improve his own swing; quickly realizing it would benefit any golfer. "My interests—sports medicine, musculoskeletal research and human performance—all come together at Perseus," says Dr. McKeon. "I get to draw on the expertise of my renowned colleagues while working with talented designers and engineers. Together, we're bringing cutting-edge technology to the real world of sports medicine. The potential is unlimited."
