New System Promises Versatile Concussion Testing

KSAL StaffSeptember 18, 2013

The University of Kansas is giving a test drive to a new system that its creators believe offers a better way to assess head injuries in student-athletes.

The system is called C3 Logix, and has been under development the past two years by Cleveland Clinic’s Innovation Group. The system uses an iPad2 as the assessment tool and incorporates more standard neurocognitive exams with balance and vision tests.

The result is what Cleveland Clinic’s Jay Alberts believes is a more comprehensive way to determine whether someone has a concussion.

Kansas isn’t alone in trying it out. Several schools and a handful of prominent hospitals, including Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, are also giving it a try.
