Neurocognitive Testing and Concussion Assessment.
ImPACT is a comprehensive program for schools, teams, and clubs that provides concussion management standards and accountability for athletes. Free baseline testing available at this location.
Developed by clinical experts who pioneered the field, ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the most widely used and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system. ImPACT provides trained clinicians with neurocognitive assessment tools and services that have been medically accepted as state-of-the-art best practices — as part of determining safe return to play decisions.
Through tools such as the ImPACT Concussion Management Model, ImPACT addresses the need for an accurate, medically accepted assessment system that is used as part of an overall concussion management protocol. This Model builds partnerships with healthcare professionals and athletic trainers to offer training and resources for affordable concussion management. ImPACT benefits athletes at all levels of play, from professional sports teams to students and their parents.
ImPACT has the largest database of clinical research (190 peer-reviewed and over 125 independent studies) on concussion management, validating ImPACT’s model. Further, ImPACT’s comprehensive normative data includes more than 75,000 (and growing) results, which provides reliability and validity of testing, even without a baseline.
