Concussions can happen to anyone, anywhere.
That's why fast detection is critical.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

 

When it comes to concussion, also known as a mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), knowledge is power. Recognizing the signs can help prevent serious health issues — and faster detection can mean faster recovery and getting back to doing the things you love. A new blood test from Abbott will help change the way concussions are diagnosed — from athletes to everyday people — providing quick and important information on potential injury.
