According to studies published in leading neurological journals, the King-Devick Test is a simple concussion screening test performed at the sideline of sporting events and can accurately aid in detecting concussions in athletes.  The two-minute test involves the athlete reading single digit numbers displayed on three cards and captures impairments of eye movement, attention, language and other symptoms of impaired brain function.  After a suspected head trauma, the test is administered and any increase (worsening) in the total time needed to complete the test, compared to their baseline test, suggests a concussion may have occurred.

The King-Devick Test is a rapid, sideline, remove-from-play concussion screening test and can be administered by coaches, parents, athletic trainers and medical professionals in minutes.  The test can help objectively determine whether athletes should be removed from games and has particular relevance to sports such as: hockey, lacrosse, football, basketball, soccer, and all contact and collision sports.
