HeadCheckTM concussion App is evidence-based and designed for children and adults. Developed by leading concussion experts at the AFL, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) and the Royal Children’s Hospital, HeadCheckTM helps adult players, parents, coaches and first aiders recognise the signs of concussion to determine whether medical attention is required and how to manage the safe return to school/study/work, play and organised sport.

Assess concussion symptoms to decide whether medical attention is required:
· Based on the latest CRT5, SCAT/SCAT5 concussion symptom assessments.
· Asks a series of prioritised medical based questions & observations.
· Quickly identifies whether a head injury requires an ambulance or a visit to a doctor. Connects ‘000’ if required.
· Gives support to adult players/parents/trainers/first aiders in high-stress situations.

Transfer care from Trainer/Coach:
· Record incident details in the incident report.
· Allows the trainer to transfer details and care from trainer to player or their parent.

Personalised concussion recovery guide for adult players, or parents guiding their children’s recovery:
· Established on evidence-based research and clinically validated post-concussion assessment testing.

· Players/parents are provided with tasks and concussion education, based on their/their child’s symptoms and progress.

Restored peace and order!

Tonight I was out having dinner when I heard a little girl crying, she was holding her head as she ran past me to her mother. As they turned around I would see a lump the size of a golf ball on her head. The mother was getting into a panic and ask the restaurant for some ice, I grabbed my phone and immediately opened my HeadCheck app, walked over and introduced myself and said is it ok if I ask you a few questions, both were ok, went through all the questions and answers and by the end of the questions we were able to determine if she needed to go to emergency. The mum was so grateful for me being there and was able to keep her calm. All in all the app was brilliant and easy to follow, gave very specific instructions via the cards, thank you 😄

Amazing resource. Every parent and sport associate should have this.

My daughter banged her her with another child in dance. It seemed minor but within an hour she was vomiting. Using this app I was able to monitor her symptoms and ended up seeking medical assistance which determined she did have concussion. I’ve since continued using it for her recovery plan and to monitor her symptoms improving.

Great app for parents and teachers

Can easily be used to take the guess work out of deciding on whether your child has a concussion or not and what to do.
