Get ahead of the curve with an ImPACT Baseline Concussion Test!

Athletes and individuals who engage in contact or collision sports should get a baseline reading for their cognitive functioning. With a baseline ImPACT test, the athlete, coach, parent, and medical team will have valuable information regarding the nature and severity of potential head injuries.
