NEW feature of the The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation 2014 Next Level Youth Football Camp (June 20-21) includes the provision of a voucher for a FREE base-line concussion test for campers age 11-17 through its partnership with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset ~ Sports Performance & Rehabilitation Center.

The ImPACT (Immediate Post Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is one important piece of the overall concussion evaluation and management process.  It is a sophisticated test of cognitive abilities which can be used as a tool for health care professionals to track the recovery of cognitive processes, make decisions about academic needs or modifications, and to help communicate post-concussion status to athletes, coaches, and parents following concussion.  The ImPACT test is ideally completed prior to the athlete’s sport season and takes about 25-30 minutes to complete and is non-invasive.

  • ImPACT features:
    • Measures player symptoms
    • Measures verbal and visual memory, processing speed, and reaction time
    • Reaction time measured to a 1/100th of second
    • Assists clinicians and athletic trainers in making difficult return-to-play decisions
    • Provides reliable baseline test information
    • Produces a comprehensive report of test results
