SportsEngine, Inc., an NBC Sports Group company, and the leading provider of sport relationship management software, announced today it has formed a partnership with ImPACT Applications, the maker of FDA cleared medical devices that assist in the assessment and management of concussion. SportsEngine and ImPACT Applications will work together to help expand the availability of ImPACT baseline testing which in turn helps identify and manage youth concussions. ImPACT baseline testing was cleared by the FDA for home use in 2018. 

With the formation of this partnership, ImPACT Applications will join the SportsEngine Marketplace, introducing league administrators, coaches, and players to ImPACT Applications’ concussion assessment tools and its trained provider network. In doing so, both organizations are taking steps to encourage community leagues and teams to strengthen their concussion protocols.

“We are excited about working with ImPACT Applications as a SportsEngine Marketplace partner," said Lance Anderson, Vice President of Enterprise, SportsEngine. "Athlete safety is one of our highest priorities so to be able to introduce a new solution that will strengthen concussion protocols and ultimately keep athletes safer is vitally important to us.”

SportsEngine’s Marketplace is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to provide value-added benefits along with its suite of solutions for youth sports teams, clubs, leagues and national governing bodies. Tens of thousands of sports organizations use SportsEngine to run their websites, tournaments, leagues, online registrations and mobile apps. Through the use of these solutions, customers have drastically reduced the time spent on administrative tasks allowing them more time to focus on developing their athletes and facilitating their busy sports lives.
 
“We understand the need to make concussion management accessible at all sports levels,” said Michael Wahlster, Chief Executive Officer, ImPACT Applications, Inc. “This joint effort with SportsEngine will help us in our mutual goal of continuing to provide athletes and their parents with safe, research-backed tools to advance the understanding and treatment of concussions in youth sports.”
