Acquired Brain Injury Ireland

Concussion Education and Assessment

The Concussion Smart App is a new tool that helps coaches and parents recognise whether an individual is exhibiting/reporting the signs and symptoms of a suspected concussion. The app allows a coach or parent to respond quickly and appropriately to this potentially serious medical situation. It informs on the signs and symptoms of a concussion, how to self-monitor and when to seek medical advice following a hit to the head. Concussion is a manageable injury; however it can lead to long term difficulties or even fatality if not taken seriously.

Benefits and features

Concussion Test
The concussion test feature has three different tests, these include
1) Side-line quick check - The Maddocks questions are validated for side-line evaluation only. They are a list of five questions that are part of an assessment for concussion on the sports side-line following a hit to the head
2) Complete Concussion Test – Developed from the SCAT3 this is a more detailed concussion test and assessment that can be used by a coach or parent to monitor an individual after a knock to the head to monitor if they need further medical advice.
3) Clinician Corner - SCAT3 - The SCAT3 is a standardized tool for evaluating injured athletes for concussion. The SCAT3 is designed for use by medical professionals. This assessment can be completed on the smart phone with an option to email to print for your records

Signs and Symptoms
A list of the signs and symptoms of a concussion allowing coaches and parents to know how to educate themselves to be able to identify a concussion

Return to Play Guide

After an individual suffers a concussion a Return to play Guide should be followed before returning to the field of play. This is a guided step-by-step, graduated, exercise-limited process. The player should avoid activities that require concentration or attention until symptoms have been absent for a minimum of 24 hours. If signs or symptoms persist at any rehabilitation stage do not allow the player to move onto the next stage until symptom free.

Rest = Recovery

After an initial concussion the individual should subscribe to complete and utter rest

Concussion Information

The apps information section helps coaches and parents to make an informed decision regarding how to proceed after a child or players injury. This feature includes answers to Frequently Asked Questions for coaches and parents

Sports Injury Test

Sports Injury Test

Noyes Knee Institute

Serious knee injuries can happen to any athlete, on any playing field, at any age. There is no way to completely prevent these injuries, but there are tests that can identify risk factors associated with knee injuries. Some of these risk factors are associated with the athlete’s technique during jumping, landing, cutting and pivoting tasks. Other risk factors are commonly correlated with strength deficits, namely in the hips, hamstrings and quadriceps.  If we can identify these risk factors in athletes, we can recommend certain areas to concentrate on during the athlete’s training regimen in order to decrease their risk of injury. The Sportsmetrics Sports Injury Test helps identify some of these risk factors associated with an athlete’s strength, coordination and body alignment. The Sports Injury Test allows you to take video of your athlete to assess lower body mechanics on a drop jump test, single leg squat and single leg triple hop. From the video, you will select specific frames to calculate knee separation distance during the drop jump test, knee and hip angles during a single leg squat and knee angles during a hop test. Within the app, you can add data for vertical jump, 1-minute sit up test, isokinetic tests, 20 yard dash, and VO2max. There are sections included for knee exam data, general notes and recommendations for clinicians. The app will compile a report to print out with side to side comparison of pre- and post-training tests. The Sportsmetrics Sports Injury Test was developed to work with the Sportsmetrics ACL injury prevention program. It is intended for use by physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers and coaches. These tests are not meant to replace professional testing or advice from a healthcare specialist.

SCAT2

SCAT2

Wayne Hans

The SCAT2 app is a new, smartphone version of the “Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 2” developed by a group of international experts at the 3rd International Consensus meeting on Concussion in Sport held in Zurich, Switzerland in November 2008 and published in volume 43, supplement 1 of the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

This app is for use by medical and health professionals on athletes aged from 10 years and older. It is not meant to diagnose mild traumatic brain (MTBI) injuries alone, however comparing preseason baseline scores to those post-injury will assist medical and health professionals in their interpretation of SCAT2 scores and ultimately in their assessment of possible MTBI.

This SCAT2 app is the ONLY SCAT2 app on the market that allows users to save tests! Once a test is complete, results can be saved (up to 50) and/or emailed to the examiner or other medical or health professionals. The emailed results of the test consist of all pertinent information required for thorough record-keeping and injury assessment including all “Overall Score” data from the SCAT2 (symptom score, physical signs score, Glasgow Coma score, balance score, coordination score, SAC score, and Maddocks Score) as well as all symptoms and their severities.

The Balance Examination Test page includes a timer with a short vibration and beep when the timer hits 20 seconds to allow the tester to watch the athlete for errors.

This app is the most user-friendly and thorough smartphone version of the SCAT2 that is available for use on sidelines, in athletic training facilities, and in clinics everywhere.
