"As a former NFL player, national spokesperson for the Positive Coaching Alliance, and someone who has personally experienced the significant effects of a concussion, I believe every parent of a young athlete and coaches should be fully aware of the signs and symptoms of a concussion in a young athlete. To help them act and respond to this injury the right way, they need to have proper tools. Based on the great CDC Heads Up work that Dr. Gioia helped to create, the Concussion Recognition & Response App gives parents and coaches a great tool to identify kids with suspected concussions. It also is a great resource of information about concussions and what parents can do to help their child recover from the injury. This app should be a necessary part of every comprehensive youth concussion management and awareness program."
—Steve Young, Former NFL Quarterback
The CRR is a free application for a smartphone or tablet that helps coaches and parents recognize whether an individual is exhibiting the symptoms of a suspected concussion. Updated with a new look in 2016, the app allows a coach or parent to respond quickly and appropriately to this potentially serious medical situation.
In less than 5 minutes, the user can complete a checklist of possible signs and symptoms to help decide whether to remove a child from play and determine the need for further examination. It also allows users to record pertinent information and share that information via e-mail with health care professionals.
Includes sections pertaining to concussion recognition and response and home symptom monitoring and features a return-to-play guide, concussion information, and acute concussion evaluation (ACE) post-concussion home/school instructions.
The app is available at the Apple® App Store and Google Play™.
