Concussion Baselines Testing
The Concussion Baseline Testing program is designed to ensure that players receive the best medical treatment for a concussion injury sustained during play or training.
Why should a player complete a baseline test?
Completing a Baseline Test will determine how a player thinks under “normal” conditions before a concussion occurs. Once the information is in your digital personal profile, your concussion treatment should you ever need one will be customised by a clinician based on your results.
In the event of a suspected concussion players will be assessed by the team doctor. If the Doctor suspects the player may have concussion, they will be referred to a Concussion Specialists and asked to repeat the test, and the players post-injury data will be compared to your baseline test data to help determine the severity and effects of the injury. Once this has been decided, a custom course of treatment and rehabilitation will be created.
