Genesis Concussion Management

A concussion is a brain injury caused by a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly within the skull.

Baseline Testing

Baseline testing prior to concussion helps us to understand how a person is functioning after their concussion.

Your response before and after a concussion is crucial. Genesis Concussion Management delivers comprehensive analysis and care, helping you to get back to your full function as soon as possible.

Genesis Concussion Management provides the following:

  • 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

Here's our game plan:

CNS Vital Signs®

FACT

What is Neurocognition?

“Neurocognition” refers to the higher brain functions: learning, remembering, concentrating, solving problems, and decision making.

CNS 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 function post-injury.

NeuroCom® Balance Master

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.
