Cogstate provides rapid and reliable computerized cognitive assessment to detect even subtle change
that could signify a change in cognitive function following a concussion. Based on a simple card game,
Cogstate’s computerized tests are highly sensitive in a concussion.
In the preseason, each athlete is given a baseline test. And, when a concussion is suspected, during the
season, a follow-up test is administered to see if the results have changed from the baseline. This
comparison helps to diagnose and manage the concussion. Follow-up tests can be administered over
days or weeks so clinicians can continue to track the athlete’s recovery from the injury. Baseline tests
are suggested every two years.
