HeadZone Concussion Care (www.head-zone.com<http://www.head-zone.com/>) is teaming up with Southern CT Youth Hockey to offer discount ImPACT (ages 10 and up) and King Devick Baselines (under 10). Please read below to learn more about each test.
A baseline ImPACT test (www.impacttest.com<http://www.impacttest.com/>) is done while a child is healthy and the goal is to get an accurate measure of how they would normally perform on the test. The test is then repeated should a child suffer a head injury to see how their memory and reaction time are being effected. This comparison is very helpful during the post-concussion evaluation. Click on the link below to learn more about the ImPACT test.
An ImPACT test takes roughly 25 minutes to complete and is done on a computer. All tests need to be supervised by a trained ImPACT technician. The test will measure memory and reaction time, while basically giving the brain a "thinking workout". HeadZone Concussion Care has a physician review every baseline and if it is possible an athlete may show a better reflection of their norm if retested, then we offer one free repeat of the test. All parents are given a copy of the ImPACT baseline to keep on file. For athletes ages 10 to 12 the baseline is good for one year, and for those 13 and older the results are valid for two years.
To begin the registration process and pay in advance please go to www.head-zone.com<http://www.head-zone.com>, click on "What we do" scroll down to "Teams and Coaches" and fill out the Student Athlete Registration, and Clinical ImPACT form.
