05 Apr Introducing S.T.A.C.
S.T.A.C., or the Symptom Tracking Application (app) for Concussion, is a symptom evaluation tool for the 22 most common symptoms of concussion. In the event of a concussion, it is important to track symptoms in order to monitor recovery. This app allows concussed individuals, or their parents or coaches, to evaluate their concussion symptoms daily. We developed the app for populations that may not have immediate access to athletic trainers or other healthcare professionals. Using the app, a concussed person can easily keep an electronic log of concussion symptoms throughout the recovery process.
The development team included: Adam Pfaller, prior Clinical Research Assistant; Ashley LaRoche, Clinical Research Coordinator; Robyn Furger, MA, Clinical Research Coordinator; Jennifer Hill, MA, Program Manager; Lindsay Nelson, PhD, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery; and Michael McCrea, PhD, Professor of Neurosurgery, Director of Brain Injury Research from the Medical College of Wisconsin and Martin Gostisha, Lead Student Developer; Evan Timmerman, Student Developer, and Dustin Hahn, Project Manager from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
