Concussion Testing

Most concussions are temporary, but should be allowed to recover fully. We use the advanced Axon Sports Cognitive Baseline test to capture a snapshot of an athlete’s brain speed and accuracy which we use to help determine when it is safe to return to the classroom, practice, and competitive sports.

LowMed has developed the unique Cogstate manual in collaboration with Boksmart to help coaches and medics to identify and treat sportman concussion.
