Abstract

Athletes that participate in contact sport are at risk of suffering Sports-Related Concussion (SRC). A traditional approach of SRC testing relies on the 5th version of the pen-and-paper based sports concussion assessment tool (SCAT5). An open, digital equivalent may facilitate more efficient and transparent assessment. We describe a co-created developed iOS SCAT5 app to enable an Internet of Things (IoT) assessment.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Uncontrolled Keywords: Clinical Relevance—iOS app to digitize SRC assessment to enhance efficiency, scalability, convenience of assessment.
