Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive TestingWidely known as ImPACT, is the most widely used computerized concussion evaluation method. It is a scientifically validated testing system that can help to objectively evaluate the concussed athlete’s post-injury condition and track recovery for safe return to play, thus preventing the cumulative effects of concussion, and second impact syndrome.
ImPACT testing was created in a way so that it can be performed by anyone who has been trained in baseline testing methods. This is a valuable component, as you don’t have to be a specialist to administer this test.
ImPACT testing takes only about 30 minutes to complete, and effectively aids the facilitator in testing, measuring and analyzing the athlete so that they can gain valuable information on the athlete’s mental state.
