Safe Sports Network
Concussion Baseline Testing
Safe Sports Network will be conducting concussion baseline testing on November 21st as part of our Youth Sports Safety Week. This service is available for kids 10 years old and up to high school ages.
The testing will be done at the Verizon Wireless Arena 11am - 3pm.
When Signing up, Please Use the "Display Alternate Name" option and put your child's name
Testing will begin at 11am. There will be 10 testing slots available every 20 minutes. Please choose a time that is suitable for you.
Please try to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of your test time to check in.
This testing is designed to get a baseline of person's healthy cognitive function. If a person where to sustain a concussion in the near future, we can have that person test again using the same test. By then comparing the person's healthy baseline to their post-injury test, it gives us as clinicians a tool to determine the best treatment procedures.
Safe Sports Network will be using a NEW state of the art system called C3 Logix. C3 Logix system is an iPad-based comprehensive assessment of cognitive function, balance and vision. The test can be a useful component of a comprehensive clinical examination. Clinical evaluation by a sports medicine professional familiar with concussion is imperative.
Safe Sports Network offers a comprehensive concussion management program. We use multiple tools to assess concussion. These tools include clinical evaluation and computerized testing. Computerized testing can be an important tool because it can provide objective information about the injury.
