ImPACT Pediatrics is similar to the online ImPACT Test in that it has been designed to aid in the evaluation of concussions. There are some of the familiar tasks (though presented at an age appropriate level for young children) and the report format is similar to facilitate easy use and interpretation. While there are some similarities, ImPACT Pediatric is a different test than the online ImPACT Test.
ImPACT Pediatric was designed, normed, and cleared by FDA for use only on an iPad. Restricting the application to iOS ensures that the test taker's reaction time is measured consistently across all test administrations. The issue with Android is that it’s fragmented. Each device has different performance parameters; making it difficult to design an application that measures test taker’s responses (reaction time and accuracy) consistently and accurately.
