Combat concussions with FREE software for computerized evaluations

Soccer player Ali KriegerAre you  an athlete, coach, teacher or school administrator at a middle or high school? If so, here’s a great opportunity we heard about  to apply for some state-of-the-art software which can help combat concussions.

According to the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, up to 3.8 million recreation- and sports-related concussions occur in the United States every year – with concussions in adolescent age groups accounting for the majority. 

This is obviously a serious issue. And if you’ve ever collided with another player, hit your head on a goalpost, or gone down hard on the court you know what we’re talking about. Whether or not you saw stars after the hit, you may have suffered a concussion.  More and more research is showing how dangerous it can be when head injuries – even relatively minor ones – go untreated.

That’s why Dick’s Sporting Goods created PACE, which stands for Protecting Athletes through Concussion Education. Through PACE, Dick’s Sporting Goods will supply up to one million young athletes across more than 3,300 middle and high schools nationwide with ImPACT software, the first, most-widely used, and scientifically-validated computerized concussion evaluation system.  It is a computerized, neurocognitive assessment tool that is used by medical doctors, psychologists, athletic trainers, and other licensed healthcare professionals to assist them in determining an athlete’s ability to return to play after suffering a concussion.

But, schools NEED TO APPLY in order to get the software! Here’s how you do it: visit http://www.mydickssportinggoods.com/pace/ and click “Submit Your School” on the left-hand side.

It’s on a first-come, first-serve basis, so if your school qualifies and the application is approved, it could become one of the 3,300 middle and high schools getting FREE software in the largest concussion baseline testing initiative ever created.

Good luck, and stay safe this season!

The first release, version 1.xx began shipping in late 1988. During 1989 and 1990 the software was re-organized, modernized and re-structured to take advantage of new and improved detector hardware, video displays, computer operating systems and compiler features. The software’s underlying structure and foundation have effectively endured the ‘test of time’ with over 600 B-RAM systems, in some 20 countries, installed around the world.
