For individuals 15-24 years of age, sports are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury only behind motor vehicle accidents.
To capture a complete view of physical and mental abilities in a baseline assessment, ICT uses a combination of proven testing procedures combined with sophisticated testing equipment for accurate and reliable results.
Executive function is the brain’s ability to think and reason normally under every day circumstances. ICT utilizes imPACT testing and Dynavision technology to assess executive function skills. All ICT therapists are imPACT certified and trained in Dynavision evaluation and treatment.
Following a brain injury, independent research has shown that up to 90% of concussion patients will demonstrate visually related symptoms. ICT utilizes Dynavision technology, visual motor and visual perceptual tests to provide an excellent baseline of visual motor skills.
Balance strategies can be affected post concussion by inner ear (vestibular impairments), vision impairments, poor autonomic control (heart rate and blood pressure) and medications. ICT utilizes Biodex technology, gait assessment and appropriate balance tests to provide an excellent snapshot of balance strategies and vestibular function.
Putting it all together, coordination is the integration of your reasoning, vision, vestibular function and other systems to carry out functionality. Having a comprehensive baseline assessment is vital for the overall picture of functional performance.
