ImPACT™ Baseline & Post-Injury Testing

ImPACT™, (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing), is a computerized neurocognitive assessment tool that measures an individual's verbal and visual memory, processing speed, and reaction time. Once a Baseline test is done at the start of a season, post-injury testing can then be used to help determine whether or not the athlete has suffered a concussion, helping to limit the likelihood of long-term injury. While ImPACT™ can assist in making return-to-play decisions; it should never be used as a stand-alone tool or as a diagnostic instrument.

Sway Balance Testing

Sway Balance Testing uses the built-in motion sensors on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod device to administer a medical grade objective balance test. Sway’s proprietary algorithms measure reaction time in response to a user’s movement of a mobile device, identifying the earliest intentional movement as a response to a stimulus. The Sway test is verified as reliable and valid in extensive product verification and comparison studies, providing the first and only FDA-cleared mobile balance test. The Sway Web Portal stores and analyzes test data, allowing for in-depth reporting with dynamic digital or printed reports of each patient. Sway reports can then be used to provide feedback to patients and other providers, to track progress and to better manage outcomes.
