Study Summary

To compare the use of the Concussion Pen to current clinical care practice. This will be a prospective study of a maximum of 24 subjects, with a goal enrollment of 20 subjects (10 in each cohort). All subjects will undergo clinical evaluation for concussion and will also be evaluated using the Concussion Pen. Randomization to being evaluated using clinical care first then the Concussion Pen and vice versa will be utilized. This randomization will help to control for evaluation fatigue on the part of study participants.
