When diagnosed with a concussion, a patient is given a stack of papers discussing what a concussion is and generally how to handle it. This packet is very confusing and hard to understand for a patient who has just experienced a traumatic brain injury. That’s where the Concussion Rehabilitation System comes in. Instead of receiving a large packet, the patient receives one piece of paper describing in general, what a concussion is. This piece of paper then directs the patient to the website, booklet and mobile application where everything is simplified so the patient can understand what he/she is reading.
Each concussion injury is unique. People may have one or two symptoms, or they may have all of them. Therefore, the system can be tailored to the individual. Splitting the system up by symptoms allows each person to learn and combat each symptom effectively.
The combination of education from the website and the booklet with the exercising component from the mobile application creates a holistic recovery program that patients can do on their own time.
This system is not intended to self-diagnose concussions. Seeing the proper physician is paramount on the road to recovering from a traumatic brain injury.
