ImPACT Applications Launches Exclusive Partnership with ConnecME Education to Bring Concussion Testing to the Middle East and North Africa

New partnership expands the reach of ImPACT Applications’ concussion care tools to 30 new
countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa regions

ImPACT Applications, Inc., the leading provider of concussion assessment tools, and ConnecME Education, an international educational company that offers tailored assessment solutions, have partnered to bring ImPACT baseline and post-injury testing to the Middle East and North Africa regions.

“We are proud to partner with ConnecME to help deliver best-in-class concussion tools to their customers in the Middle East and Africa. This partnership will provide those customers with a local resource that delivers first-class service and support for customers seeking to utilize the ImPACT software to better identify and treat their patients suspected of having a concussion,” said James Gyurke, Chief Executive Officer of ImPACT Applications.

Schools, sports leagues, and insurance companies in the MENA region will now have access to ImPACT, a proven and scientifically-backed concussion assessment tool, through ConnecME. When a patient takes an ImPACT baseline or post-injury test, an ImPACT clinical report is generated. Healthcare providers can leverage these reports and other patient data to make informed decisions and create tailored treatment plans. This is yet another step towards raising concussion awareness, increasing access to quality concussion care, and improving concussion outcomes worldwide.

ConnecME Education has been a stalwart of the education, assessment, and technology sectors for the past 20 years, and has maintained its status as a leader in the market. With ImPACT Applications as an exclusive partner, ConnecME is making pathways in bringing these services to multiple sectors across the region.

“The region has been on an upwards trajectory in both health awareness and preventive medicine, as well as becoming a beacon in health-centric technology and scientifically backed tools,” said ConnecME CEO Mohammad Shadid. “We are excited about launching this exclusive partnership with ImPACT Applications as we endeavor to provide high-quality concussion care in the health, sports, and education sectors throughout the region.”
