ImPACT
is a sophisticated, research-based computer test developed to help your doctor evaluate your recovery following a concussion. ImPACT is a user-friendly 20- minute test that has been scientifically validated to measure the effects of sports related concussion. ImPACT can help answer difficult questions about your readiness to return to play, protecting you from the potentially serious consequences of returning too soon. About 10% of all student athletes in contact sports suffer a concussion during their season. Premature return to play following a concussion can lead to potentially serious consequences, and proper management of the injury is the first step in avoiding long-term complications.
