This computer program test establishes a baseline for brain function, responsiveness, cognitive abilities and memory. Every student athlete at Marshall High School takes this prior to playing and in the event they have a head injury/concussion they will take the test several times afterwards to see if their brain has recovered.

Avera Marshall Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Specialist  Dr. John Kemp was instrumental in getting the software for Marshall. He explains why it's so important.
