ImPACT Applications, Inc., developer of the ImPACT© Test and the ImPACT Concussion Management Model, has released a neurocognitive assessment product for businesses, corporations and occupational medicine. ImPACT© Workplace – the latest addition to ImPACT’s line of products – “is designed to provide employers, healthcare providers, and wellness professionals with an empirically validated, reliable and valid procedure for evaluating the neurocognitive status of their employee or patient,” according to the company.
ImPACT Workplace offers corporations “an efficient, convenient and cost effective way of incorporating neurocognitive evaluation into their health and wellness programs, critical employee evaluations, or return to work protocols. Since ImPACT Workplace removes subjectivity from the decision process, it is ideal for post-injury job accommodation determinations and return-to-work decisions.”
The company notes that “more and more companies are realizing that healthy neurocognitive functioning of their employees can play a crucial role” in workplace efficiency and productivity.
“Typically, companies have focused their wellness-at-work programs on reducing physical risk factors such as smoking, obesity, and diabetes,” said Michael Wahlster, chief executive officer of ImPACT Applications. “Forward thinking companies are turning their attention to assessing neurocognitive status as part of these wellness programs, as well as using it to help guide management decisions.”
