professional levels of sport.

Baseline ImPact Testing

Baseline testing is a valuable tool in concussion management. It establishes the

brain's 'normal' level of functioning. Hallmark Health System Rehabilitation Services offers baseline testing for teams and individuals. Baseline testing can be completed within our clinic or at your school for larger teams. Please call (781) 395-7750 to schedule ImPACT testing for your athlete or team.
