Brainscreen

Brainscreen would reside on portable computing hardware systems and be available during applicable athletic endeavour for the assessment of cognitive impairment secondary to traumatic brain injury (i.e., Concussive Syndrome). Should a participant sustain a hit/injury or potential trauma inducing incident, brainscreen can be administered by sideline personnel to provide real-time outcome score and appropriate action to be taken, based on empirically derived standardization. Depending on outcome score, the participant may (1) return to activity immediately (“green light”); (2) require further and formal examination and be cautioned not to return to activity (“yellow light”); (3) require immediate medical intervention (“red light”). In tandem with the real time outcome, Hemisphere Centre for Mental Health could provide further direction and education on next steps and further in-depth testing
