About the Concussion Diagnostic Tool Mobile Application
The Concussion Diagnostic Tool mobile application is based on the Sideline Concussion Assessment Tool 5 (SCAT5) developed at the 4th International Conference on Concussion in Sport and the Concussion Recognition Tool 5 (CRT5). The app is designed to aid health care providers, parents, and coaches in the process of concussion assessment and diagnosis. The app is designed to walk health care providers through the diagnostic process and help improve decision making with concussion care. The app is designed to be used at baseline prior to sports participation and should then be used following a suspected headinjury. Scores generated by the app can then be compared and health care providers can better determine if a concussion has been sustained. The development of the Concussion Diagnostic Tool was funded through a grant provided by the Brigham Young University College of Nursing.
