imPACT Concussion Testing

NEUROCOGNITIVE BASELINE & POST INJURY TESTING & CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT MODEL
impact

ImPACT’s Test is computerized and takes about 25 minutes to complete. ImPACT recommends that it be administered by an ImPACT trained athletic trainer, school nurse, athletic director, team doctor or psychologist. Baseline tests are suggested every two years. If a concussion is suspected, the baseline report will serve as a comparison to a repeat ImPACT test, which professionals can use to assess potential changes or damage caused by a concussion. The management of concussions should only be conducted by trained medical professionals. To achieve this, ImPACT is expanding reach to manage concussions through a growingnational network of several hundred clinical professionals who are Credentialed ImPACT Consultants™ (CICs).
