HitCheck has developed a comprehensive cognitive assessment app available to athletes, coaches, trainers and parents on their smartphone. HitCheck takes prevailing concussion testing methods and digitizes them into a simple seven-minute test that measures brain functions known to be impacted by concussions. Athletes take a preseason baseline test, then retake the assessment in the event of a head injury. By recording previous scores, the HitCheck app is able to highlight changes in cognitive functioning that indicate cause for concern. The app is an innovative resource for teams and leagues striving to make better health decisions for athletes.
