In recent years, there has been a significant amount of research performed concerning sports-related concussions in high school student-athletes. Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital is committed to the health and safety of the student-athletes, and has partnered with Manistique Area Schools. This partnership will allow Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital to provide an optional ImPact test for our students at no cost.

ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is a research-based software tool utilized to evaluate recovery after a concussion is suspected. ImPACT is currently being utilized by many professional, collegiate, and high school sports programs throughout the country. The exam is used to properly diagnose and manage concussions.

The test is non-invasive computerized exam which is set up and a video game format. The test takes approximately 25 minutes to complete. It tracks information such as memory, reaction time, speed, and concentration. Essentially the ImPACT test is a preseason physical of the brain, it is not an IQ test.

Manistique Area Schools’ students, aged 12-19, will be able to take a baseline exam during the school day the week of October 22-26, 2018. If a concussion is suspected at any time, the student will then retake the test. Both the baseline test and the post injury test data will be evaluated by the student’s Healthcare Provider of choice or our ImPACT team. Through this process these healthcare professionals will determine when return to play is appropriate and safe for the injured student.

BASELINE CONCUSSION TESTING OCTOBER 22ND THROUGH OCTOBER 26TH FROM 11:30AM-1:30PM, MANISTIQUE AREA SCHOOLS. PERMISSION SLIPS ARE REQUIRED!
