AFL Concussion App - HeadCheck
The AFL in conjunction with Murdoch Children’s Research
Institute have developed an app to help Trainers, Coaches or Parents/Guardians
to recognise the symptoms of a suspected concussion and its severity. The Head
App guides non-medical users through a series of concise questions and
observations to quickly identify whether a child’s head injury requires an
ambulance, hospital, or a GP visit.
The App also assists Parents/Guardians in managing their child’s recovery program based on the symptoms displayed as well as guide the Parents/Guardians on their child’s safe return to school, training and games.
The App can be downloaded for free via the following links-
