A 25 minute computerized test called ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is used to obtain baseline evaluations of neurocognitive functioning (memory, thinking, concentration, and reaction time) is an aid to determine safe return to play decisions for athletes. Baseline tests are recommended every two years and can be used in comparison to a repeat ImPACT test if a concussion is suspected to evaluate potential changes or damage caused. The test is available in more than 20 languages.

ImPACT Features:

  • Measures player symptoms
  • Measures verbal and visual memory, processing speed, reaction time, attention span, non-verbal problem solving, and response variability
  • Reaction time measured to a 1/100th of second
  • Assists clinicians and athletic trainers in making difficult return-to-play decisions
  • Provides reliable baseline test information
  • Produces a comprehensive report of test results
  • Automatically stores data from repeat testing
