Concussion Coach 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.
Free Concussion Coach download from: iTunes (iOS)*.
Concussion Coach will be available for Android devices in 2014
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).
Concussion Coach offers tools to assess symptoms and cope with related symptoms. This app is best used when you are in face-to-face treatment with a health provider.
NOTE: Concussion Coach is not meant to be a replacement for diagnosis, medical treatment, or rehabilitation therapy with a health provider.
