HOW to schedule- Please call 615-324-1600 and ask for the scheduling department.  Tell a scheduler that you are with Jr. Preds hockey and need to schedule a concussion baseline test.  Please arrive 6-8 minutes before your scheduled time.  The visit will take about 30 minutes and is free of charge.

WHERE– Elite Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center’s Cool Springs location is at 7105 South Springs Drive, Frankin, TN, 37067.   Same parking lot as the Aloft Hotel, next to Jonathan’s close to the Galleria Mall.

WHAT-Concussion baseline testing establishes a baseline of memory and reaction time that can be used to compare to the same test done after a concussion to assess an athlete’s recovery after a concussion or suspected concussion.  At Elite we use ImPACT software for our testing.  It is the most studied and valid test for concussion testing.  It is valid for ages 11 and up and is good for 2 years, meaning a baseline test only needs to be done every 24 months.

The test is not an aptitude or IQ test of any kind.  We like to tell kids it is a computer game with a series of memory games and reaction time tests on a computer using a mouse.
