Abstract

Objectives: This study aimed to determine the ability of neurocognitive hop testing to assess differences between those with and without a history of concussion and to provide insight into the possible remained symptoms that may influence the concussion-associated long-term conditions.

Design: A total of 50 participants is targeted to be recruited from the local community, 25 with a history of concussion and 25 without. All participants are physically active at least 90 minutes per week in any form and lower extremity surgery-free.

Methods: One healthy control (age: 24, Male, Height: 168.5 cm, Weight: 94.6 kg, Dominant Leg: Right) was analyzed for the study. The participant completed neurocognitive hopping tests: single-leg central reaction hop (SLCR), single-leg peripheral-reaction crossover hop (SLPRC), single-leg memory triple hop (SLMT), and a Choice-Reaction (CR) hop test.

Results: The average reaction time is as listed: for the right side, SLCR: 1.03 sec, SLPRC: 1.29 sec, SLMT: 1.01 sec, and CR: 20.93 sec; for the left side: SLCR: 1.03 sec, SLPRC: 1.16 sec, SLMT: 0.95 sec, and CR: 22.12 sec. The average distance is as listed: for the right side, SLCR: 141.30 cm, SLPRC: 245.07 cm, and SLMT: 326.87; for the left side, SLCR: 136.73 cm, SLPRC: 284.67 cm, and SLMT: 332.43 cm.

Conclusion: Additional data analysis is required to determine the difference among the two groups, with and without a history of concussion.
