ImPACT Testing

ImPACT testing

Dr. Kenneth Blad, Dr. Ryan Biga and Dr. Toby Shinaut are credentialed ImPACT consultants.ImPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the most widely used and most scientifically validated computerized concussion managent tool available.ImPACT comes in two forms:

1. Baseline test – Administered before the start of a sport season, school year or other activity.

2. Post-Injury test (what we do here at Midwest Regional Health Services) is administered by a licensed healthcare provider when a concussion is suspected.  Multiple post-injury tests may be given to an individual during the course of treatment and rehabilitation.

ImPACT is not a diagnostic tool.  Only a licensed healthcare profession can diagnose and treat a concussion.
