Dr. Sautter is a Credentialed ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) Consultant. ImPACT is a computerized neuropsychological assessment, providing a cost-effective tool for decision making on when to safely return an athlete to competitive play. A quantitative baseline assessment serves as a “cognitive fingerprint” from which to compare future cognitive function if a concussion occurs. The rule of thumb is to keep the athletes out of play until they are back to baseline and do not exhibit symptoms of concussion.
This neurocognitive screening measure is utilized by the National Football League, National Hockey League, NASCAR, and European Soccer, in addition to universities and high schools across the country.
