Results 19 concussions in 18 players were analysed. Rapid picture naming may require additional processing devoted to color perception, object identification, and categorization.
Rucker a c Barry D. Mobile Universal Conussion Evaluation System. Further research should look to utilise the K—D test in in-match protocols to establish if this improves the diagnostic accuracy of in-match protocols for sports-related concussion.
The MULES requires rapid eye saccades and complex neural processing, and may be a useful screening tool for concussion.
Balcer a b c. However, if used alongside current side-line cognitive and balance tests, it may assist in more accurately diagnosing sports-related concussion. MULES scores showed the greatest degree of improvement between trials 9. Check if you have access through your login credentials or your institution.

Galetta a c Laura J. The K—D test does not appear to be effective if used as a stand-alone test for the diagnosis of concussion. King devick concussion test pdf download tests rely on initiation and sequencing of saccadic eye movements. Administration order was randomized; MULES tests were audio-recorded to provide objective data on temporal variability and ranges of picture naming responses.

It includes 54 concussioh pictures of fruits and vegetables, animals, and other objects, which subjects must name as quickly as they can from left to right without making errors.
Both tests involve saccadic and other eye movements, which are affected in concussion. Conclusion The MULES test is a rapid picture naming task that may engage more extensive neural systems than more commonly used rapid number naming tasks. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
