SportsSafe Concussion Testing(SportSafe)is an Austin, Texas-based clinic administering baseline and post-injury testing and interpretation along with full neurological evaluation and assessment.
Why is concussion testing important?
Recent legislation on athletic-injury protocol requires students who have sustained a head injury to be evaluated and released by a physician before returning to play. The best way to evaluate head trauma is through cognitive performance testing, which provides objective results of reaction times, memory, and other brain functioning. Our assessment of these results is instrumental in ultimately allowing safe return to play after concussive brain injuries.
Pre-injury Baseline Testing SportSafe is the first Austin clinic to offer widespread pre-injury baseline testing for school athletics and club organizations. While not mandatory, pre-injury baseline testing is invaluable for evaluation of future head trauma. We use the computer testing and database of a nationally renowned company called ImPACT. ImPACT is utilized by almost all professional sports teams, Olympic teams, U.S. Military Academies, and over 1,200 colleges, universities, and high schools.You can have your athlete take one now, just click on the ImPACT symbol on any page!
