An enhanced web dashboard allows for easier and more thorough management of all the concussion data collected.

Faster, more reliable testing

The best and latest standardized methodology for concussion testing was built through years of research and relies on evidence based science. It tests multiple facets of the brain, providing you with more robust information.

Now with even more testing, HeadCheck includes: Glasgow Coma Scale, Maddocks Score, Cervical Spine Evaluation, Symptoms Evaluation, Cognitive Assessment, Neurological Exam, Balance Test and Vestibular-Ocular Motor Screening.


Better, quicker data-driven decisions

Digitizing the data enables instant test comparison, graphs, and historical results that help you get to the appropriate “play/no-play” decision faster and with more confidence.

Detailed, useful reporting

HeadCheck includes access to a web-based reporting dashboard where you can compare your organization’s data to normalized values and monitor compliance to the concussion protocol.

The Importance of Testing Multiple Brain FunctionsWhy HeadCheck utilizes SCAT5

Because concussions are a variable injury, from person to person and incident to incident, they are a hard injury to identify. Currently, there is no single test or scan that can reliably identify if an athlete has received a concussion. Instead, research supports testing multiple functions of the brain for changes or abnormalities after a blow to the head.

The SCAT5 is a paper assessment tool that is considered the Gold Standard method for evaluating injured athletes over the age of 13 because of the breadth of testing it incorporates. The SCAT5 was developed as part of a global collaboration of the top researchers in the concussion field and was published in March of 2017. Following the principles of the SCAT5, HeadCheck tests for a broad range of concussion-related afflictions from physical or emotional symptoms, to cognitive function and balance.

Enhancing protocols with new testsWhat is VOMS and why should I use it?

Comprehensive testing of vision offers a thorough way to successfully uncover a concussive injury. The Vestibular/Ocular Motor Screening (VOMS) is a recently developed protocol that does just this. VOMS tests 5 common vestibular/ocular motor tasks and assesses the changes in common post-concussion symptoms.

The initial study on VOMS, published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine in 2014 by Mucha and colleagues, demonstrated its internal consistency and sensitivity in identifying concussed patients. Since then, numerous investigations have been published, including those concluding that: VOMS measures unique aspects of vestibular function (Yorke et al., 2016), higher VOMS scores are associated with longer recovery times in concussed athletes (Anzalone et al., 2016), and VOMS displays an acceptable false-positive rate among healthy Division I college student-athletes (Kontos et al., 2016).

Case Studies


Over the course of six months, UBC reallocated 60-man hours, improved concussion protocol compliance, enhanced training and coaching opportunities for Student Trainers, and improved the overall quality of care for their athletes.
