When an athlete is diagnosed with a concussion, there are certain steps that need to be taken to ensure that they are safely returned to play. This is known as the Return-to-Play (RTP) protocol. Research has shown that active recovery plays an important role in aiding patients with concussion recovery. The Return-to-Play protocol is a gradual multi-day process that, with the assistance of a medical professional, increases an athlete’s activity.
The Return-to-Play function on the HeadCheck system includes a variety of functions that allow staff to track their athletes more effectively, as every action within each stage of the protocol can be recorded within an athlete's profile.
Many organizations have its’ own Return-to-Play protocol where stages and rules may vary. Here are some examples:
