ImPACT® stands for Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing. ImPACT is an objective tool to support trained healthcare providers in making sound decisions regarding a patient’s ability to return to an activity following concussions. It is a computerized test that measures memory, attention span, and visual and verbal problem-solving. ImPACT has two primary uses: before the onset of an activity, a baseline test is conducted to measure the athlete’s performance baseline. In the event of an injury, a post-injury test is administered and compared to the baseline and/or normative data scores.
