Looks pretty good. I have yet to use this on an actual injury, just installed it. So far it looks like a great way to take care of sideline documentation. It does need an area for free text notes, for example, if I want to check for saccades, I want a place to document the presence or absence of them, vertical and horizontal. As well as convergence, smooth pursuits, etc.
Pretty good I have used this app to perform sideline and recovery concussion tests. My only problem is that the words in the SAC test are the same, and if you perform this on the same athlete multiple times they are likely to memorize the words and then their scores can be a false positive for improvement. This should be worked on.
Misses a key injury In going through the trial, it said the athlete didnt have a concussion because a blow to the head wasnt reported. What about a non contact concussion from whip lash? Ive had plenty of athletes receive non contact concussions. You cant rule out a concussion just because there wasnt a blow to the head....
Too much fuss and "overlay" The app is made so you are supposed to register an "athlete" before you can use the app to support your evalution. Notq particularly useful in the field. And everytime you start it, you to go through a disclaimer... --- If someone could hack the app, prune it of cool-looking fill, remove focus from the longterm stuff, make a "Start Evaluation" button, instead of a "Register New Athlete" -- and make a de-Americanised version -- it would be great.
Used for roller derby Fast and effective way to concussion test. Update of current testing would be nice since SCAT 3 is out now.
Great! I use this app everyday!
