ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Resting) is the first, most widely used, and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system. Developed in the early 1990’s by Drs. Mark Lovell and Joseph Maroon, ImPACT is a 20-minute test that has become a standard tool used in comprehensive clinical management of concussions for athletes of all ages.
Scott Orthopedic Center Sports Medicine and St. Mary’s Regional Neuroscience Center formed this partnership to provide the best possible care to the Tri-State athletes for concussion testing and follow up.
Local Schools and Community Teams can contract with Scott Orthopedic Center to have their teams tested. Certified Athletic Trainers from Scott Orthopedic Center Sports Medicine will administer the tests. In most cases the Initial Baseline tests will be conducted at the school if the contracted schools have a computer lab that meets requirements. Post-Concussion Tests can be performed at either the school or at Scott Orthopedic Center. Anyone needing referral will be immediately referred to St. Mary’s Regional Neuroscience Center for follow up.
