Baseline ImPACT Testing 2018-07-31T10:16:57+00:00

ImPACT TESTING

As one part of proper concussion management, ISCN utilizes the computerized ImPACT test to obtain objective information on the function of the brain. ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) provides a common tool which allows for effective collaboration between athletic trainers, coaches, physicians and neuropsychologists in concussion management. Through baseline testing, clinicians are able to account for individual differences in cognitive ability and symptom reporting among student athletes. Again, ImPACT is only one tool in the management of concussions. Thanks to a donation from the Indianapolis Colts, the ISCN can discount the cost of baseline ImPACT tests to Indiana high school athletes. There are opportunities for those who would not fall under this grant to take baseline ImPACT tests if they are interested on an individual or group basis.
