Pearson is now the exclusive provider of Concussion Vital Signs, a concussion management program that allows for testing, reporting, athlete roster management and education about concussion detection, from one website: www.concussionvitalsigns.com.

Concussion Vital Signs provides a brief, web-based neurocognitive baseline and post-injury testing solution, a self-reported history, mobile-deployed sideline assessment, and a post-concussion symptom checklist.

Students registered in Concussion Vital Signs take an initial assessment before any injury occurs to establish an individual “NORMAL” neurocognitive (brain function) baseline so athletic trainers and doctors have a reference point they can use to assess an athlete’s neurocognitive function post-injury.
