The Elliot Hospital Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Services will be providing optional Baseline Concussion testing on Saturday, August 26th from 9am until 2pm for Bedford Bulldogs Youth Football and Cheer athletes. The clinic will be held in the third floor of our Elliot at River’s Edge facility, in the Outpatient Rehabilitation department.
The baseline testing will consist of the BESS (Balance Error Scoring System) and the SCAT 3 (Sports Concussion Assessment Tool).
We require prior scheduling, and parents can reserve a time this week by calling 663-3672 between 8am – 6pm. A parent or guardian must attend the testing with the athlete.
Cost is $5 per player.
