4 BrainFx 360 is a new, comprehensive, standardized, research-based digital assessment tool that is designed to measure the functional impact of mild to moderate brain injury or disorder. ~

5 Any patient who:  is showing the signs of a concussion  has recently been involved in an MVA with report of “hitting their head” and/or continuing headaches  was knowingly unconscious for any period of time for any reason  was involved in a slip and fall accident where they may have hit their head  may be deemed a candidate for psychological intervention

6 Patients must be/have:  10 years of age or older  fluent in the English language (other languages are planned to be available in the future)  full ability to type/use their hands Patients can have other injuries/ailments at the time of the Ax, however, these are required to be documented in the report, so as to be considered with their results.

7  The goal for allied health professionals is NOT to diagnose a patient with a brain injury, but rather to provide a comprehensive look into the possibility of a mild to moderate brain injury.  Allied health professionals conduct and guide the patient through the evaluation.  Only psychologists and neurologists interpret the results and make diagnoses (FMDs cannot do this).

8 Any allied health professional who is certified and/or registered with a registering body can conduct a Brain FX assessment. Examples: College of Physiotherapists of Ontario College of Chiropractors of Ontario College of Massage Therapists of Ontario In this clinic, planned practitioners through BrainFX when completed training will be: Roxanne Sherry Jason
