Aurora Sports Medicine Institute is partnering with Cedarburg High School to offer ImPACT Concussion Baseline testing. This is a computer based test that establishes the normal function of an athlete’s brain, think of it as a pre-season physical for the brain. The test challenges memory, reaction time, speed, and concentration, but is not an IQ test.
In the past, CHS has used the Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT3) to assess for concussions followed by the WIAA Return to Play Concussion Policy. Now CHS will be offering ImPACT as an additional resource along with the SCAT3 to continue providing the best care possible for all student-athletes.
The information gathered from this test will be saved in a secure site. Should a concussion occur, this is one of the tools that medical professionals can use to evaluate the recovery of the concussion through comparing the baseline with a post concussion test. This comparison along with other concussion evaluation tools, determines the time frame for safe return to sports.
The test takes about 25-40 minutes, and will be administered at one of the high schools computer labs with Adam Groose, LAT proctoring the test. There is no cost for this test and it is 100% OPTIONAL.
Attached is a brief educational piece about concussions and what protocol the Sports Medicine Institute Athletic Training staff follows. If you have additional questions, please contact Adam Groose, LAT at email@example.com or Sue Reed at (262) 243-4161.
The Aurora Sports Medicine Institute staff is excited to make this program available to continue to keep your student-athlete’s health and safety the top priority.
