What is ImPACT?
ImPACT is a computerized neurocognitive assessment tool to help licensed healthcare providers evaluate and manage a suspected concussion. ImPACT is the industry leader in concussion management and trusted by teams and organizations around the world. The School District of Shell Lake uses this trusted tool in evaluating injuries.
ImPACT comes in two forms:
- Baseline Test – The test tracks a student's symptoms and measures multiple aspects of cognitive functioning, including attention span, working memory, sustained and selective attention time, non-verbal problem solving, and reaction time. ImPACT recommends re-administering the baseline test every two years.
- Post-Injury Test – Test results are compared to baseline scores and/or normative data scores as part of a healthcare provider's assessment of the injury. Multiple post-injury tests may be given to an individual during the course of treatment and rehabilitation.
