Validation of assessment tools for sports related concussion

Project: Research

Project Details


The study will employ an observational study design in which participants in sports at risk of concussion injury will undertake assessments of visual and somatosensory function across 3 years. Testing will occur at a minimum of at least once annually as part of normal sports screening within clubs. Where a participant is considered to have received a concussion as part of their sport performance they will be assessed weekly during their recovery period.

In the context of the nuCoria - UC Collaboration Agreement; subjects will be tested using the W12 visual field test and where possible the W20. Where possible, subjects should undertake standard optometric testing (including OCT where possible).
