ImPACT Concussion Testing Up Close and Personal

Here is a great article from a writer back east where he explains what it is like to actually take the ImPACT Baseline Test.  There is nothing like hearing what someone else has to say in terms of how well or effective something might be.                                                                                                                   This writer clearly sees the value in it and was surprised at how in depth it is. Here is an Excerpt:

“I found the next five parts to be mentally taxing, so I can only imagine what it would do to someone suffering symptoms. These remaining parts take you through a serious of speed drills where you have to use two keys on the keyboard that correspond with a shape and color.

A section based on shapes appears and much like the words you were asked to memorize, you must view the shapes for several seconds, then later recall the correct shape. I considered this the toughest part of the test simply because the shapes are shown on the recall screen and some are reversed, upside down, in the correct position and some are totally different and did not originally appear.”

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this topic to be really something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  2. This blog was… how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally I have
    found something which helped me. Thanks!
