What is ImPACT baseline testing?

Baseline testing is typically performed before an individual participates in activity. Baseline testing is comprised of computerized assessments that measure reaction time, memory capacity (visual and verbal), speed of mental processing, and executive functioning of the brain. Having an estimate of the individual’s functioning prior to an injury helps the healthcare provider more accurately determine the extent of the injury and an appropriate treatment plan.
