Concussion management remains a difficult issue for athletic trainers. While many different assessment techniques are available for use, their utility can be limited by subjectivity, practice effects, or impracticality in most athletic training settings. To translate findings from extensive protocols to clinically viable tests, we implemented a multifaceted and objective testing protocol of collegiate athletes after concussion consisting of portable tests that are relatively easy and time efficient to administer. Specifically, we assessed the neurocognitive function, dual-task gait patterns, electrophsyiologic profile, and biomarker profile of athletes tested within 72 hours of a concussion and followed across time for the subsequent 3 months.
