CAP Baseline Testing implements Brain Gauge, a technology that uses sensory stimuli to probe specific brain functions
Calgary, Alberta – December 16th, 2019 – CAP Corporation (CAP) launches baseline testing to address the need in the sports world for a reliable and accurate test to address the growing concerns around concussions in sport.
The 2017 Consensus Statement on Concussions – Zurich Concussion Guidelines stated that the current baseline tests have been proven “reliably unreliable”. These findings were corroborated with research conducted by the University of Windsor which found that as many as 55% of baseline tests were inaccurate.
Boasting over 70 published papers, CAP baseline testing uses Brain Gauge, a technology developed in conjunction with Neuroscientist Dr. Mark Tommerdahl and the Office of U.S. Naval Research. Brain Gauge is the only test with the accuracy required to measure reaction time variability removing all subjectivity. It is a proven and effective concussion assessment tool for monitoring and tracking brain health history if an athlete is concussed.
Dr. Mark Tommerdahl, commented that, “Adding baseline testing makes sense for CAP Corp and the sports concussion community. The Brain Gauge has measured functional deficits of concussed patients that were cleared by other commercial concussion tests that rely on pre-season baseline testing.”
Kim Adolphe, CEO CAP added that, “We believe our Baseline Testing and Return to Sport Protocol will dramatically reduce secondary impact syndrome and give coaches, athletes, parents, doctors and all stakeholders peace of mind that the athlete is ready to return. No more guesswork and green lights to return to sport when athletes are not ready!”
About CAP Corporation
Founded on the principle that preventing concussions is about changing the athlete, not the sport, CAP developed a patented technology to assess concussion risk simulating a sports impact, and mitigate that risk with scientifically designed, sport specific exercises, independently tailored for athletes. Since then, CAP has expanded to offer a range of programs that educate and put control in the hands of stakeholders to help their athletes, patients, and employees achieve peak brain performance with the most advanced, proven, and appropriate technological programs. Our unprecedented data capture and analysis is at the core of all our CAP Programs which include CAP RAM 4 Prevention, CAP Baseline Testing, CAP Brain Repair Protocol, Brain Gain 4 CAPletes, and Brain Gain 4 Corporate Wellness.
