Book an Online Baseline Test

Baseline Testing Measures:

Many athletes & test-takers enjoy the challenge of taking the baseline test. Essentially
the baseline test is a preseason physical of the brain which measures:

Verbal & Visual Memory

Reaction Times

Impulse Control

Concentration & Attention Span

Multitasking Ability

Symptom Data

Take 20 minutes
to be prepared if a
concussion happens

ImPACT Baseline Testing is a series of game-like activities that measure reaction time, memory, and processing speed. Test results provide UPMC Concussion Network Clinicians with an accurate picture of your healthy brain function.

Online baseline testing is FDA approved for ages 12-59 meaning you, your child or your sports teams can complete their baseline test at any time from home. Just like an annual physical, it is recommended that you take a baseline test every year.
