The Cogstate Computerized Cognitive Assessment Tool (CCAT) is an eight- to 10-minute neurocognitive online test that helps qualified Medical Providers manage return-to-play decisions after an Athlete has sustained a concussion. The test measures multiple cognitive areas that are especially sensitive to concussions, including attention, processing speed, working memory, and learning. An initial "Baseline" test is taken before a concussion occurs -- typically in the preseason. The test is repeated after a head injury. The combination of the Baseline and After Injury test scores provides valuable information to the Medical Provider who is managing the Athlete's care and the return-to-play decision, reducing the risk of additional injury become complete recovery.
