ImPACT Research Reports
Concussion management is a developing science. To keep clinicians and customers informed, ImPACT Research Reports are periodic updates on selected new peer-reviewed research that directly relates to ImPACT’s reliability, sensitivity and usage.
The issues addressed in ImPACT Research Reports ensure that ImPACT’s neurocognitive assessment tools and services continue to lead the way as medically accepted, state-of-the-art best practices that help trained clinicians determine safe return to play decisions.
In addition to the Research Reports, ImPACT is proud to present an extensive listing of peer-reviewed papers published through September 2014. ImPACT encourages independent, academically based research regarding the ImPACT program and on concussion management in general. View all in our Clinical Research Database.
