Concussion is a variable injury, meaning the injury won't be the same for every athlete, or from concussion to concussion. Because of this variability, researchers around the world suggest that the best practice is to test functions from multiple facets of the brain including cognitive function, orientation, standing balance, memory, concentration, and vestibular/occular screening. By taking a snapshot of these various brain functions after an injury, you can assess the type of head injury you're dealing with.
However, having this data collected on paper, on a laptop and on a tablet can be challenging. HeadCheck helps you pull all of these pieces of information into one place with whichever platform you prefer, giving you the best opportunity to quickly manage sideline situations while protecting your athletes and securely storing your data.
