Medics on the Ball now offers King Devick Testing, a two minute test for each of your players. The King-Devick Test is an objective rapid sideline screening test for concussions that allows you to have a preseason or pregame baseline for your athletes.
How it Works
During play when a suspected head injury occurs, the athlete is evaluated by having the King-Devick test administered. The results are then compared to the initial preseason or pregame baseline. This provides coaches, athletic trainers, medical professionals, and parents the ability to objectively determine whether players should be removed from games or not. As a result, King-Devick Test can help prevent the serious consequences of repetitive concussions resulting from an athlete returning to play after a head injury.

Concussion is one of the most commonly occurring injuries in sports today. The Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT) is a commonly used paper neurocognitive tool. To date, little is known about SCAT baseline normative values in youth athletes.
The Second International Symposium on Sport Concussion in Prague in 2004 led to the creation of a new Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT) for athlete self-evaluation and physician assessment of sports concussions.
The tool combines existing assessment tools, including the Standardized Assessment of Concussion, into a new standardized tool on a two-sided card.
