Genesis Concussion Management
Dinged, bell rung, knocked out.
Whatever the dismissive slang term might be, the fact is that concussions are brain injuries and the impact of brain injuries can be long-term and debilitating.
Genesis Concussion Management Program provides concussion evaluation and management for any athlete, recreational athlete or non-athlete who participates in activities that may pose a risk for concussion. This concussion management program offers:
- Pre and Post-injury testing (Concussion Vital Signs® and NeuroCom®)
- Written report of findings and specific recommendations to parents, primary care physicians, and school administrators, coaches and athletic trainers.
- Recommendation for return to classroom
The cost for both the balance and cognitive baseline assessment is $50.
Concussion Vital Signs (CVS)®
Concussion Vital Signs® provides a web-based neurocognitive brain function baseline testing, a self-reported history, and post-concussion symptom rating scales. This assessment is used to establish an individual’s “normal” neurocognitive baseline so health professionals have a reference point they can use to measure an athlete’s neurocognitive function post-injury. “Neurocognition” refers to the higher brain functions: learning, remembering, concentrating, solving problems, and decision making.
Balance is controlled by an area of the brain that can also be affected by concussion. The NeuroCom® Balance Master uses technology developed by NASA to measure an individual’s balance. A baseline is obtained to establish an individual’s “normal” balance to use as a reference point for post-injury testing. The athlete stands on a platform inside a small booth that has sensors to measure postural stability (balance) as both the platform and the walls move.
