HitCheck, the mobile app that clinicians and athletic trainers utilize to track athletes’ unique brain performance, announced that it is the preferred cognitive assessment tool for Premier Physical Therapy & Sports Performance (Premiere PT) and its clients.
Premier PT serves patients in all three counties of Delaware. It also provides athletic training to the jockeys at Delaware Park, as well as the athletes at Hodgson High School, St. Georges Technical High School, Middletown High School, Appoquinimink High School, Odessa High School, Caesar Rodney High School, Polytech High School, Cape Henlopen High School, and for all activities and tournaments at the DE Turf in Frederica.
“Concussions are not something you can take an X-ray for, there is no easily visible way to diagnose what damage may be done. HitCheck is a convenient tool to have a baseline on a player’s normal brain activity so that we can retest them when an injury occurs. It is another tool in our tool belt to help make that decision that they are concussed,” said Mandy Minutola LAT ATC ITAT, who is the Director of Athletic Training at Premier PT
HitCheck proudly serves an extensive list of top organizations, such as the U.S. Air Force, Stanford University, University of Portland, Play USA Rugby, Baylor Scott & White Health, Hamilton Health Care System, American Youth Football, Youth Sports Nevada, and NorCal Youth Football & Cheer. The company also has top medical and athletic advisors like Davante Adams, Rick Mirer, Mike Mauti, and Ajay Nwosu.
Drawing on years of medical research, HitCheck takes standardized cognitive testing methods and translates them into short, simple mobile assessment tests that users can take as soon as a head injury is suspected. Each test measures a specific aspect of brain performance. Once the test is complete, 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.
