What is ImPACT baseline testing?
Baseline testing is typically performed before an individual participates in activity. Baseline testing is comprised of computerized assessments that measure reaction time, memory capacity (visual and verbal), speed of mental processing, and executive functioning of the brain. Having an estimate of the individual’s functioning prior to an injury helps the healthcare provider more accurately determine the extent of the injury and an appropriate treatment plan.
What is ImPACT post-injury testing?
Post-injury testing, like baseline testing, is comprised of computerized assessments that measure reaction time, memory capacity, speed of mental processing, and executive functioning scores for memory (visual and verbal), reaction, and speed. This testing is completed after an injury occurs. Results can be compared to baseline scores or to age-referenced normative data by a trained healthcare provider who is authorized to make return to activity decisions.
