ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the first, most-widely used, and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system. At the forefront of proper concussion management is the implementation of baseline and/or post-injury neurocognitive testing. Such evaluation can help to objectively evaluate the concussed athlete's post-injury condition and track recovery for safe return to play, thus preventing the cumulative effects of concussion. In fact, neurocognitive testing has recently been called the "cornerstone" of proper concussion management by an international panel of sports medicine experts.

ImPACT is a user-friendly computer based testing program specifically designed for the management of sports-related concussion. The instrument has been designed after approximately 10-years of University-based, grant-supported research. Developed in the early 1990's by Drs. Mark Lovell and Joseph Maroon, ImPACT is a 20-minute test that has become a standard tool used in comprehensive clinical management of concussions for athletes of all ages. ImPACT is currently the most widely utilized computerized program in the world and is implemented effectively across high school, collegiate, and professional levels of sport participation.

The IMPACT test must be taken by all student athletes at Carlisle School District from grades 7 to 12 who plan to participate in any interscholastic athletic event. The ImPACT test is to be updated every two years with the PIAA mandatory start date being used as the date of renewal. The purpose of the ImPACT test is to establish a baseline for the cognitive memory and visual memory in order to compare to if the student athlete suffers a head and neck trauma in Carlisle Athletics while playing a sport.

If a student athlete suffers a head or neck trauma during the upcoming school year, a second ImPACT test or possibly more will be required as part of their evaluation to determine whether they can return safely to athletic participation. The second ImPACT test will be compared to the baseline test taken prior to the beginning of their sport season to determine cognitive brain functioning.

In order to return to play, the athlete is required to have clearance from the Carlisle High School Certified Athletic Trainers, Passed the Impact Test, and received Final Approval from the Carlisle School District Athletic Physician.
