Broward Health Offers Student Athletes Baseline Concussion Tests

 
Broward Health Offers Student Athletes Baseline Concussion Tests
Posted July 26th, 2014 @ 5:00am

Students who will be playing sports during the upcoming school year can get free athletic physicals as well as $15 baseline concussion tests at any Broward Health urgent care centers.

 

The ImPACT test establishes a baseline of an individual's normal cognitive activity and then stores that information in a national database. 

 

If an athlete suffers a concussion, any doctor with access to that database will know what someone's normal function is before clearing a student to get back in the game.

 

That keeps students out of the game until they're truly fine to return.

 

The physicals and tests area available at the centers located in Coral Springs, Plantation, and Weston.
