Rapid and Reliable
As part of our array of services, we offer comprehensive concussion testing. Using state of the art technology give our staff the ability to analyze sports-specific and general cognitive brain function through testing.
BrainCheck is a rapid and reliable cognitive health assessment software. In comparison to traditional subjective cognitive exams given by many health care providers we set the standard using cutting edge software that is easy-to-use.
This objective science backed tool allows Integrity Health staff to assess and analyze our patients’ cognitive health today and compare results over time.
BrainCheck is a cognitive assessment aid. BrainCheck is a FDA certified Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) that uses an array of tests to give clinicians an interpretation of the current level of cognitive function for a patient.
BrainCheck is a diagnostic tool used by clinicians in conjunction with other tests, and is not a singular indicator for determining concussions or other cognitive issues.

What is a concussion?
According to the Mayo Clinic, a concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can affect your cognitive function. The effects of a concussion are most often temporary, but can include headaches and cause problems with memory, balance and coordination. Loss of consciousness can occur from a concussion.
What can cause a concussion?
Concussion’s can have a variety of causes such as competing in contact sports, car accidents, and mild blows to the head. Violent shaking of the head and torso can also cause concussions. Fall’s are the most common cause and often result from hits during contact sports, such as football and soccer.
What are the symptoms?
Concussion symptoms can often be subtle and may not present immediately. Symptoms may last days or even weeks. One or multiple symptoms may occur in a concussion.
Concussion symptoms include:
- ringing of the ears
- blurry vision
A concussed person may also have:
- slurred speech
- cognitive delay in response to questions
- loss of consciousness
When should my child or I see a doctor?
Any brain injury, including concussions are not usually life threatening, but they can cause very serious symptoms that require treatment. You should see a clinician after experiencing any brain injury.
Experts recommend that athletes do not return to play while symptoms of a concussion are present.
Athlete’s with a suspected concussion should not return to activities that may worsen or put the athlete at higher risk for another concussion.
We recommend that the athlete not return to play the same day as the injury and seek medical evaluation prior to returning to play.
Our health professionals will make the concussion evaluation process as simple as possible. At the moment we are not taking walk-in appointments. You may book an appointment through our website below.
