Reliability & Sensitivity
When dealing with concussion, the understandable tendency is to seek a simple solution for dealing with this complicated injury. But in reality, modern science doesn’t have one yet. ImPACT focuses on the neurocognitive aspect as one important piece in a multidisciplinary concussion evaluation and management process that can provide information to assist trained clinicians.
Extensive third party research has documented the high levels of reliability and precision when ImPACT is administered and interpreted by properly trained clinicians. In fact, while no test is 100% reliable, the ImPACT Test is equal to, or even more reliable than many common medical tests (e.g., blood pressure, EEG, cholesterol).
