Frequently Asked 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 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.
  • What is a Baseline vs. Post-injury assessment?
    A Baseline assessment measures your cognitive performance when your brain is functioning in a healthy state. A Post-injury assessment is the very same test taken after an injury is suspected. The results of the Post-Injury assessment are then compared to those of the Baseline assessment to identify any changes in cognitive performance.
  • 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.
  • Does 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 healthcare 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 post-injury scores match my baseline scores?
    Yes. HitCheck is not a concussion diagnostic tool. Only a qualified healthcare practitioner can diagnose a concussion.
  • Can I use HitCheck to track my long-term performance?
    Yes. Tracking your brain performance history of is one of the many benefits of the HitCheck app. In addition to helping, you monitor your long-term performance, this feature lets you share your history with medical practitioners.
  • What happen 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 tests need to be taken on the same device?
    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.
  • 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.
  • How often should I/my athlete 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 assessment.
  • What are the optimal conditions for taking a Baseline 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.
  • Do you have to use a mobile device to take the test?
    Yes. The HitCheck cognitive assessment aid is designed to be taken on a mobile device – Apple or Android.

While administrators have access to all of their members' HitCheck results, users can access their personal information and analyze valuable data via the mobile app (smartphone) or through the web, no matter which device they used to complete the assessment.
  • Can multiple people use the same account to use HitCheck?
    No. HitCheck compares each individual's assessments against their own prior performance, which means each user must take the HitCheck test under their own unique user name and account.
