Why Choose Atlas Concussion Testing?
According to Brainline.org, an estimated 3.8 million concussions occur from sports and recreation related activities each year. Such injuries can lead to a breach in the blood-brain-barrier, which can be discovered with the Blood Brain Barrier Permeability Test (Array 20).
- The Array 20 blood test offers unmatched objectivity in determining the presence or absence of a concussion
- Current computerized neuropsychological concussion testing is unreliable, at best, according to numerous studies and research:
- “A number of independent studies have found the test gives inconsistent results, has high error rates and can be easily misled by neurological factors unrelated to concussions,” –NFL (On ImPACT Testing), 2013
- “ImPACT classified healthy subjects as concussion victims between 22 and 46 percent of the time,” –Jacob Resch, PhD, University of Texas Arlington, 2013
- “It’s a huge scam. They’ve done incredible marketing, and they’ve managed to establish this test as the standard of care with no evidence that it has any benefit,” –Robert Sallis, MD, President of the American College of Sports Medicine, (on ImPACT Testing) 2012
- A 2007 study at the University of Michigan by Dr. Steven Broglio, Director of the NeuroSport Research Lab, found 20 to 38 percent false-positive concussions with ImPACT Testing on healthy subjects
