BASELINE TESTING & RETURN TO SPORT PROTOCOL

No more guess work! Our testing is accurate and removes any subjectivity!

No more guesswork!

No more green lights to return to sport when athletes are not ready!

Our baseline testing is accurate and completely removes any subjectivity.

All other baseline testing relies on subjective questions and, according to the Consensus Statement on Concussions – Zurich Concussion Guidelines, should not be the only assessment done. These findings were corroborated with research conducted by the University of Windsor which found that as many as 55% of baseline tests were invalid.

The Concussion in Sport Group acknowledges that “the science of concussion is incomplete and therefore management and return to play decisions lie largely in the realm of clinical judgement on an individualized basis’.

How Is Our Baseline Testing Different and Why Is It So Accurate For Assessing Concussions?

  • CAP Baseline Testing implements The Brain Gauge™, a technology that uses sensory stimuli to probe specific brain functions.
  • Over 100 published papers.
  • The Brain Gauge™ was developed in conjunction with the Office of U.S. Naval Research.
  • The Brain Gauge™ measures deficits after concussed patients are cleared by other baseline tests and physicians.
  • The only baseline test with the accuracy required to measure reaction time variability (Holden et al., 2019).

Return to Sport Protocol

The Brain Repair Protocol program gathers data from Brain Gauge and the Symptom Tree. The data gathered is analyzed and a CAPcare Plan is generated to assist clinicians and doctors.

Brain health history is monitored and tracked as patients recover. Partially filled radar plots indicate poor performance while filled radar plots indicate strong performance.

This is a Brain Gauge Assessment of an athlete who came to CAP Corporation after she was given the green light to return to sport following SCAT 5, ImPact, and balance testing – a multi-modal approach. She didn’t feel she was ready. She was right!

The final test before an athlete is given the green light to return is the RAM. The patented RAM technology has been clinically validated by the Canadian Society of Mechanical Engineering to assess the risk of concussion in athletes by simulating a sports impact and measuring their head kinematics. The RAM technology is the only platform of its kind in the world that measures neck function relative to sport-specific performance to assess concussion risk, and mitigate that risk with scientifically designed, sport specific exercises, independently tailored for the specific nuances of the athlete, regardless of gender, age, sport, or physical morphology.

CAP Corporation has developed a scientifically validated safety standard we believe all athletes in high risk sports should meet to lower the risk and mitigate concussions before they occur. The CAP Return to Sport Protocol ensures that athletes are fit both neurologically and biomechanically, removing all the guesswork and inaccurate testing that has been the status quo.

We believe the CAP 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.
