Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Test
For those suffering from a concussion, prompt evaluation and treatment can mean the difference between full recovery and lingering effects. Using the industry’s leading evaluation software, imPACT, the medical professionals at Maryland Orthopedic Specialists can help quickly and accurately evaluate and manage concussions.
The imPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Test) software is the first and only FDA-approved testing protocol for the assessment and management of concussions. A series of questions are asked to judge the patient’s visual and verbal memory, reaction time, and processing speed. The results are then interpreted by one of our healthcare providers, and a treatment plan is developed.
imPACT provides testing immediately post-injury, as well as throughout the course of treatment to measure a patient’s progress.
At Maryland Orthopedic Specialists, we believe accurate, timely testing is important to identifying and developing effective concussion protocols for our patients. imPACT is one of many tools and interventions we use, all with the goal of getting you back to your normal course of activity as quickly as possible.
