  • Chronic wrist pain
  • Fractures
  • Back pain

What is ImPACT™

ImPACT™ is a 20-minute neurocognitive test battery that has been scientifically validated to help assess and measure the effects of sports-related concussion. Conducting baseline and post-injury neurocognitive testing using ImPACT™ helps objectively evaluate an athlete’s cognitive status to prevent the cumulative effects of concussion. ImPACT™ can help answer difficult questions about an athlete’s readiness to return to play, protecting them from potentially serious consequences of returning too soon and avoiding long-term complications.
