Concussion Education For Coaches

Pre-season baseline testing can be crucial to the proper treatment of concussions. When given in the pre-season, the ImPACT™ test provides a measure of an athlete’s normal cognitive ability.

If an athlete suffers a concussion during the athletic season, the results of the post-concussion ImPACT™ test are compared against his or her pre-season test results to highlight cognitive deficiencies, determine the extent of the athlete’s injuries, and formulate a return-to-play treatment plan.
