At HeadCheck, we understand how vital concussion education is. Concussion education is an evolving field, with new data emerging frequently. We also understand the importance of not only trainers and therapists having this knowledge, but athletes, parents and coaches as well. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of a concussion and how they can occur will help keep all athletes safe. We have partnered with select organizations to make understanding the importance of concussions and the impact they have on athletes easier for everyone.
1) CrashCourse provides students, parents, and coaches with the latest medical knowledge on the prevention and treatment of concussions through interactive films. For customers, an optional interactive video module for athletes can be accessed through the HeadCheck web dashboard that can be viewed by logging in with an Athlete account. Please contact our Customer Success Team if you would like this video module to be turned on for your athletes.
2) HeadWay Foundation aims to promote a safer sports culture, provide resources for patients, and enhance concussion evaluation protocols and accessibility.
