ImPACT™ Testing

At St. Elizabeth Sports Medicine, we pair computer-based ImPACT™ testing with objective balance assessment and traditional tests, when needed. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools combined with the expertise of our highly trained physicians help ensure more accurate diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of the region’s student athletes. Working with the area’s high schools and universities, we treated 400 new cases of concussion last year alone.

What is ImPACT™ testing?

ImPACT™ testing uses a computer to determine an athlete’s normal brain function. It measures the mental changes that occur when an athlete sustains a concussion.

An ImPACT™ test measures variables several variables, including:

  • Attention span.
  • Working memory.

  • Sustained attention span.
  • Selective attention span.

  • Response variability.
  • Non-verbal problem solving.
  • Reaction time.

ImPACT™ testing takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. The test can be administered as a baseline in the pre-season or as a way to help determine if a student athlete is ready to return to play after a concussion is diagnosed. Results from the test can be compared to the athlete’s pre-concussion baseline, if available, or against other athletes of the same gender and age through a national databank.
