​ImPACT Neurocognitive Testing

​Rehabilitative Therapy

For information on ImPACT Baseline Testing, click here.

​The ImPACT Test Is:

  • One important piece of the overall concussion evaluation and management process.
  • A sophisticated test of cognitive abilities.
  • The most scientifically researched concussion management tool.
  • A tool that can help health care professionals track recovery of cognitive processes following concussion.
  • A tool to help communicate post-concussion status to athletes, coaches, parents, clinicians.
  • A tool that helps health care professionals and educators make decisions about academic needs following concussion.

​The ImPACT Test Is Not:

  • A "panacea" or cure-all for concussion, as there is no such thing. As long as contact to the head occurs, concussion will continue to happen.
  •  A tool to diagnose concussion, which should always be diagnosed by a qualified health care provider. 
  • A substitute for medical evaluation and treatment.
