What is ImPACT?
ImPACT is a computerized neurocognitive assessment tool to help licensed healthcare providers evaluate and manage a suspected concussion. ImPACT is the industry leader in concussion management and trusted by teams and organizations around the world.
ImPACT comes in two forms:
- Baseline Test – Administered by a licensed healthcare provider or a trained baseline administrator before the start of a sport season, school year, or other activity. Baseline scores are collected and stored on our privacy compliant servers. ImPACT Applications recommends re-administering the baseline test annually in accordance with CDC guidelines.
- Post-Injury Test – Administered by a licensed healthcare provider when a concussion is suspected. Test results are compared to baseline scores and normative data scores as part of a healthcare provider's assessment of the injury. Multiple post injury tests may be given to an individual during the course of treatment and rehabilitation.
What is ImPACT Pediatric?
ImPACT Pediatric is the only FDA-cleared concussion assessment aid for ages 5-11. ImPACT Pediatric is quick, efficient, and interesting for children to complete on the iPad. It also provides norm-referenced baseline data for ages 5-11 so clinicians can better monitor recovery and ultimately inform return to play decision.
