The official sports medicine provider at Prior Lake High School
What: We use a program called Impact. It is a computer-based test that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete after instructions are given. The test measures cognitive components like reaction time, immediate and delayed memory, and concentration. If an athlete sustains a concussion, a post test may be administered and the results between the baseline and post injury test are compared to determine any deficits.
Who: Winter sports season athletes participating with a high school program. A new baseline is recommended every 2 years. Any post injury testing is considered a new baseline and hence starts that 2 year cycle over again. Testing is not mandatory but can be a useful tool to determine readiness to return to sport following a concussion.
When: November 9 OR November 16th. Only need to attend one date.
Where: A312 at PLHS
Time: Arrive at 3:30pm. TESTING WILL BEGIN AT 3:45pm. If an athlete shows up after 3:45pm they will likely not be allowed to test that day. Testing starts at the same time for everyone attending. Late arrivals are disruptive.
