Like the the stars and galaxies in outer space, the human brain is constantly changing. Through a process known as neuroplasticity or brain plasticity - the brain is continually reorganizing, rewiring, and making new connections in response to the environment, emotions, experiences, and injury.
Acoustic Athletics is the first of its kind, perceptual development and neuro enhancement company that offers athletes, teams, coaches, and their organizations the most effective tools to develop the highest level of technical skills and tactical expertise.
Co-founded by human echolocation expert, Brian Bushway (bio), Acoustic Athletics applies the latest advances in sports neuroscience to augment human performance, increase learning speed, improve mental health, accelerate recovery, and reduce injuries.
Developed by Acoustic Athletics in response to growing demand, Perception and Action Cognitive Enhancement Training for Sports, (PACE Sports):
After losing the ability to see with his eyes, Brian mastered human echolocation, learned how to mountain bike, and gained recognition as the World’s Best Totally Blind Mountain Biker. Human echolocation is the ability for individuals to see with sound. Scientists were fascinated by Brian's abilities and studied his brain extensively via fMRI and EEG. Visual Neuroscientist, Mel Goodale documented neuroplasticity via fMRI:
"Echolocation response in the brains of blind
echo-experts may be the result of neural reorganization involving visual cortical areas."
Brian graduated from Pepperdine University in 2005 with a degree in Speech Communication and a minor in Non-Profit Management. He went on to earn his Master’s Degree in Special Education. Brian’s journey continued, as he led FlashSonar instruction to visually impaired students across five continents.
Today, Brian delivers activational workshops and presentations to a spectrum of educational, corporate, and non-profit audiences, focusing on embracing life experience and maximizing the opportunities that life has to offer, with an insight to

Thomas Izdebski represents the third generation of his family in the global healthcare sector. As a young scientist and prospective medical student, Thomas started his first medical device company at the age of seventeen, playing a key role in the financing, design, and development of over 15 medical devices – several of which were licensed to industry leaders, Medtronic and Atrium.
As the author or co-author of over 20 patents and publications, Thomas continued to innovate global healthcare delivery for nearly two decades. Under the framework of the One Belt One Road initiative, Thomas led technology transfer and commercialization efforts in the medtech and biotech sectors through the formation of joint ventures (JV) with European and Middle Eastern enterprises. Most notably, Thomas was involved with the centralization of a JV between Israel’s Clalit Health, the second largest HMO in the world, and China’s Suzhou Industrial Park, in Jiangsu Province, China.
Thomas works to improve the standard of care through strategic alignment of hospitals, healthcare systems, key financial partners, technologies, and pharmaceutical companies. As healthcare delivery around the world become increasingly stressed by high utilization, a rapidly aging population, and the effects of the coronavirus, Thomas is focused on providing healthcare real estate sale-leaseback financing.
