Why Use HeadCheck?

HeadCheck includes two stages…

Stage 1: Recognition

  • Asks questions to identify the presence of a concussion and provides real time instructions on what to do.
  • Monitors more serious symptoms to allow users to recognize signs and take appropriate medical action.
  • Content is derived from the CRT5 and SCAT6/Child SCAT6 symptom lists.

Stage 2: Recovery

  • Symptom assessment completed at 1, 3, and 7 days post-injury, and when all recovery tasks are complete.
  • CISG recommendations were translated into four recovery stages, during which users receive both education and tasks.
  • Validated criteria are used to determine the completion of the recovery process.

HeadCheck

Delivers individualised pathways to recovery by:

1. Assessing whether completing a task made symptoms worse

2. Restricting progression of some tasks by time (e.g., 24 hours)

3. Delaying some activities until others are completed (e.g., return to school must be complete before return to organised sport).
