Concussions Diagnostic Tool
Around 1.7 million people suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) every year. In efforts to address the prevalence of TBIs, BYU Professors Craig Nuttall, Ryan Rasmussen, and Scott Summers recently created a mobile application called the “Concussion Diagnosis Tool”. The app is meant to aid health care providers, parents, and coaches in the process of concussion assessment and diagnosis. This mobile application is based on the Sideline Concussion Assessment Tool 5 (SCAT5) and the Concussion Recognition Tool 5 (CRT5). Funding for creating this app came from a grant from the Brigham Young University College of Nursing.
The new app is making its way to high schools, hospitals, and the community. You can download the app for free by searching for the “Concussion Diagnostic Tool” in the app store.
