ImPACT Testing

  • What is ImPACT?

    ImPACT is a computerized neurocognitive assessment tool to help licensed healthcare providers evaluate and manage a suspected concussion. ImPACT is the industry leader in concussion management and trusted by teams and organizations around the world.

    ImPACT comes in two forms:

    1. Baseline Test – Administered by a licensed healthcare provider or a trained baseline administrator before the start of a sport season, school year, or other activity. Baseline scores are collected and stored on our privacy compliant servers. ImPACT Applications recommends re-administering the baseline test every two years.
    2. Post-Injury Test – Administered by a licensed healthcare provider when a concussion is suspected. Test results are compared to baseline scores and normative data scores as part of a healthcare provider's assessment of the injury. Multiple post injury tests may be given to an individual during the course of treatment and rehabilitation.

    Please check with Miss Stephanie Hart, our Athletic Trainer, to be sure your ImPACT test is up to date (ImPACT tests must be done every two years). You will not be allowed to practice/scrimmage if your ImPACT testing has not been completed.

    If you have not been tested, or if your testing is not up to date, you need to pre-register with Mrs. Hart via email - shart@dimanregional.org.
