Pre-Season Baseline Testing:
ImPACT baseline testing
Computerized balance testing
Concussion awareness and education
The Concussion Center at St. Luke's Warren Hospital is a Certified ImPACT Consultant. ImPACT, developed by doctors at the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, has proven to be a useful tool in measuring the severity and effects of concussion and determining when it is safe for concussed athletes or individuals to return to sports or activity. With ImPACT, the athlete or individual takes a pre-season or pre-activity 20-minute test on a computer that measures brain processing such as speed, memory and visual motor skills. The individual's baseline data are stored in a computer file. Should the individual ever experience a concussion, he or she will take the ImPACT test several times in the days following concussion. Post-concussion data are then compared to baseline data to help determine the severity and effects of the injury. The data helps determine when the athlete's neurocognitive brain function has returned to baseline scores when it is safe for the athlete or individual to return to sports or activity.
ImPACT, developed over the past decade, is used by more than 100 high schools in western Pennsylvania and more than 400 high schools and 150 major colleges and universities nationwide, in addition to numerous professional sports organizations, including the National Football League, Indianapolis Racing League, Formula 1 Racing, and several National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball teams. For any recreational athlete or non-athlete who participates in activities that may pose risk for concussion, the ImPACT baseline testing is available by appointment at The Concussion Center.
