ImPACT Testing

ImPACT Testing Can Give Athletes an Advantage

ImPACT - or Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing - is a computerized measurement of verbal and visual memory, processing speed and reaction time. Taken before a sports season, it can document normal neurological function. After an injury, an athlete would take the test again, and the results of both tests are compared to see if concussion has occurred. Then, periodically after an injury, the assessment is taken again to track recovery.

This free testing is offered by Penn Highlands Outpatient Physical Therapy Department. Call 814-375-3372 for more information.
