Take the first step into the care of the UPMC Concussion Network by completing an ImPACT® baseline test at your local Affidea Centre
ImPACT® is a non-invasive, computerised physical examination of the brain that tracks memory, reaction time, speed and concentration. It objectively measures cognitive changes associated with a concussion that cannot be accurately measured by self-reported symptoms. ImPACT® is a scientifically-validated test based on currently accepted international guidelines and practices.
Concussions, while largely affecting athletes, can occur due to elderly falls, car accidents, child playground accidents, etc. If an individual is believed to have suffered a head injury, ImPACT® can help determine the initial severity of the head injury, diagnose the status of concussion and safely monitor the progression to full recovery.
