Did you know that this year there will be an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million concussions in the U.S. from sports and recreational activities? That will prompt a lot of questions, such as:
How do I know if I have a concussion? What happens if I fall asleep? Are all concussions the same? Can I play sports again? What is a concussion, anyway?!?
Travel along as BMX-rider Daniel Garcia uncovers the truth about concussions in order to help his twin sister get back on the basketball court. You decide where Daniel goes to learn about concussions. A beach full of surfers? A physics lab? A public park? A BMX tournament? It’s up to you!
Built-in Adaptive Reader™ technology adjusts the text to your reading level and provides for a seamless learning experience. Other features include a digital notebook, where readers can store the notes they will use to help Daniel complete his quest.
Advised by the world-renowned UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, “Rebound: Beating Concussions” teaches the most up-to-date, cutting-edge science in concussion research and treatment, including an interactive simulation of the ImPACT® test – a powerful diagnostic tool used by sports health professionals.
