Concussion Coach

Average: 3.3 (33 votes)

The Concussion Coach App was designed for Veterans, Servicemembers and other people who have symptoms that may be related to concussion, or mild to moderate traumatic brain injury. This App can be used by itself, but it may be more helpful when used along with treatment from a health provider.

Features:

  • Education about concussion symptoms and treatment options.
  • Tools for screening and tracking your symptoms.
  • Relaxation exercises and tools for managing problems related to concussion.
  • Direct links for community-based resources and support.
  • Personal contact list, photos and music.

Concussion includes any blow to the head that results in a change in perception, loss of consciousness or a loss of memory for the events right after the injury. Symptoms that can result from concussion include emotional challenges (such as getting angry more easily), physical problems (such as headaches and dizziness) and cognitive issues (such as concentration or memory problems).

The Concussion Coach App offers tools to assess and cope with concussion symptoms. This app is best used when you are in face-to-face treatment with a health provider, and is not meant to be a replacement for diagnosis, medical treatment, or rehabilitation therapy with a health provider.

Concussion Coach is available for Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch) and will be available for Android phones and tablets in 2014.
