Foundry Sports Medicine offers free Baseline Concussion Testing for all high school athletes.
ImPACT is an innovative computer based program designed to provide the sports medicine physician with objective information to help remove guesswork from concussion management and return-to-play decisions.
It tests memory, reaction time, attention and processing speed, ImPACT provides specific information regarding injury severity and a standard for evaluating recovery from a concussion. Adopted throughout professional sports and mandated in the NHL, ImPACT is fast becoming the “gold standard” in the recognition and management of head injuries.
Concussions are common injuries in sports today and are often difficult to diagnose and treat. Return-to-play decisions are often based only on observation and player’s report of symptoms, without the benefit of neuropsychological testing. Call (401) 459-4000 to schedule your ImPACT Test today!
