ImPACT® Test Section 1:
Demographic Profile and Health History Questionnaire
Section 1 of the ImPACT test requires the athlete to input basic demographic information and descriptive information through a series of easy-to-follow instructional screens. The athlete inputs this information via a keyboard and must utilize an external mouse to navigate/select responses on the screen.
Many of the questions can be answered using "pull down" menus in the window. This section asks the athlete to answer questions regarding height, weight, sport, position, concussion history, history of learning disabilities and other important descriptive information.
Everything [at the ImPACT training workshop] was extremely well organized... and the presentations were excellent. It has already made a difference in how I approach treatment for concussions in motor vehicle accidents.
