ImPACT Baseline Testing

Houston Methodist Concussion Center offers ImPACT Baseline Testing to student athletes at their school by utilizing their computer labs to access this web-based program. All tests are confidential and stored on a secure server that only the school athletic trainers and Houston Methodist doctors and staff can access.

ImPACT (Immediate Post Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the first and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system, and is the gold standard of testing across the MLS, NFL, NHL and other professional and collegiate sports teams.

It is a web-based computerized test used to test cognitive ability. It is NOT an IQ test. It is a test of memory, attention, and reaction time. The baseline test provides a basis for comparison in the event that the athlete sustains an injury, requiring a post-injury test.

ImPACT is administered by computer and typically takes 20-30 minutes to complete. Baseline tests are administered at schools or in several of the concussion center locations. The cost of the ImPACT baseline test provided by Houston Methodist Concussion Center is $5 per athlete.
