Common Questions

What is HitCheck?

HitCheck is a cognitive assessment aid that can be administered in just 7 minutes from any smartphone. The assessment tool is comprised of interactive game-inspired tests. HitCheck can be administered routinely to monitor cognitive performance.

How is HitCheck different from the other cognitive assessments?

HitCheck's cognitive assessment aid is performed on a smartphone, not a PC. The test takes approximately 7 minutes to complete, which is a fraction of the time of other programs. Plus, HitCheck offers video game like tests that are fun.

Can HitCheck diagnose a concussion?

No. HitCheck is not a diagnostic tool. A concussion is a complex injury that only a qualified health care practitioner can diagnose. Sharing your HitCheck test results with a health care professional can provide them with helpful data. Hitcheck should NOT be used as a stand-alone assessment.

Could I still have a brain injury if my HitCheck scores match my baseline test scores?

Yes. HitCheck is not a concussion diagnostic tool. Only a qualified healthcare practitioner can diagnose a concussion.

What happens if I/my athlete changes teams or is on more than one team?

Results of HitCheck remain with the individual, even if they change sports or compete on different teams.

Do all the tests need to be taken on the same smartphone?

No. You can complete the HitCheck assessment on any smartphone as long as you are logged into your account on the app. You can also view your test results, as well as the results of any individuals you are managing, on any smartphone, tablet, or computer.

How do I/my athletes share results with an athletic trainer or medical practitioner?

HitCheck users can log into their account at any time to access their assessment results and share them directly with their healthcare practitioner for further review. If you are a HitCheck administrator managing multiple individuals within a team or organization, you can add your organization's athletic trainer or medical practitioner as an admin to your team. This will give them the ability to view each individual's profile and assessment history right from their own HitCheck account.

Can individuals with learning disabilities or attention deficit disorder use HitCheck?

Yes. Since everyone takes a baseline test, the results after a possible injury are compared to their own individual results.

What is a baseline assessment?

A baseline assessment measures your cognitive performance when your brain is functioning in a healthy state.

How often should my player take a baseline assessment?

We recommend taking a new baseline at least once per year, or before each sports season begins. Consult your doctor or qualified healthcare practitioner if you have a history of brain injuries or have any questions or concerns about completing the 10-minute assessment.

When should players complete HitCheck's baseline assessment aid?

Baseline assessments should be taken when the brain is healthy and functioning optimally, such as at the beginning of a sports season before contact practice begins. For best results, we recommend that individuals complete their baseline assessment in a similar environment to one in which they play or practice. For instance, soccer players should complete the assessment outside on a practice field, while ice hockey players should complete their baseline while wearing their skates.
