ImPACT Baseline Concussion Testing (U11 – U19)*:
The Banner Concussion Center administers the ImPACT (Immediate Post concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) test. The ImPACT test is a widely used neurocognitive test that measures multiple aspects of cognitive function including attention span, working memory, sustained and selective attention time, response variability, non-verbal problem solving and reaction time. This is a test that is used widely by the NFL, NHL, MLB, MLS and most NCAA Division I institutions.
ImPACT Concussion Testing is used to measure one’s ability to recognize, remember and react to words and pictures. It is an objective measure of memory and reaction time. The results provide a fingerprint of sorts to illustrate how the brain functions in a non-concussed state. ImPACT Concussion Testing is accomplished through a thirty (30) minute interactive and individual computerized test. Testing is monitored by a professional who has undergone training in the administration of the test. Please reference the PDF: ImPACT Information for Parents. Video – Click Here
*The ImPACT test only has normative data appropriate for ages 11 and up, so therefore it is not advisable that this test is administered to children below the age of 11.
