Every users' HitCheck test results are always compared to their prior performance, helping to provide a more personalized cognitive assessment.

Yes. Since everyone takes a baseline test, the results after a possible injury are compared to their own individual results.
A baseline assessment measures your cognitive performance when your brain is functioning in a healthy state. If you or one of your athletes has sustained a brain injury, such as a concussion, within the past year or has a history of brain injuries, secure clearance from a medical practitioner before completing HitCheck's 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.
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.
