HitCheck educates all Stanford University Club Sports with CrashCourse Concussion Education
TeachAids congratulates HitCheck and Stanford University Club Sports on an incredible new alliance to measure brain health and promote concussion education among all club sport athletes. HitCheck is a mobile app that allows clinicians and athletic trainers to baseline and screen for cognitive assessment. The technology captures important data, records and compares objective, quantitative results from prior performance, and highlights changes in brain functions that may require medical attention.
At the start of each season, each player will use the HitCheck 9-test cognitive assessment battery to measure brain performance, as well as their Symptoms Survey to record athlete concussion symptoms before and after a suspected head injury. The club athletes from Stanford will also use HitCheck to take post-injury assessments to help inform the athletic training staff in return to play decisions.
In addition to the cognitive assessment, HitCheck will provide TeachAids’ CrashCourse concussion education for free to all players to certify them proper to their baseline assessment. This partnership ensures all club athletes at Stanford are educated on the signs and symptoms associated with concussions prior to participating in their sport. Programs participating include the Stanford University Club Soccer, Basketball, Rugby, Volleyball, Water Polo, and Lacrosse teams, among others.
TeachAids was founded at Stanford in 2009 and partnered with HitCheck in 2021. We are excited to see two these two organizations come together to help promote best practices amongst our thriving sports community at Stanford.
