ImPACT Testing Effectiveness Debated

If you want motivation to read it (which I doubt you’ll need), take this quote into consideration:

Yet a study — really a study of studies — published last year in Current Sports Medicine Reports reviewed the entire span of research on ImPACT and concluded: “[T]he false positive rate appears to be 30 percent to 40 percent of subjects of ImPACT … the false negative rate may be comparable. … The use of baseline neuropsychological testing … is not likely to diminish risk, and to the extent that there is a risk associated with ‘premature’ return-to-play … may even increase that risk.”
