Baseline Concussion Testing
The sports medicine team in our Delafield Clinic and Mequon Clinic are hosting baseline concussion testing for young athletes (ages 10 and older) from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Wed., Aug. 2, 2017. The cost is $25 per child. Please call our Concussion Line at (414) 337–8000 to register.
Baseline concussion tests are given to healthy athletes before a concussion happens. After an injury, another test may be done. The results then can be compared to measure the athlete's brain function before and after the injury. This helps sports medicine specialists improve concussion care and make return-to-play decisions.
During your visit, your child will receive the following three baseline evaluations administered by our sports medicine staff:
- Cogstate computerized neurological testing
- BESS test (Balance Error Scoring System)
- King-Devick test
