What is ImPACT? ImPACT® (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the most-widely used and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system. ImPACT was developed in the 1990s to provide useful information to assist qualified practitioners in making sound return to play decisions following concussions.
 
Concussions can occur in any sport or physical activity.
 
About 10% of all student athletes in contact sports suffer a concussion during their season.
 
Recovery may take days or weeks, with individuals often experiencing dizziness, headaches, double vision, memory problems, irritability and depression.
 
Premature return to play following a concussion can lead to potentially serious consequences.
