Concussion Coach was designed for Veterans, Service members, and other individuals who experience physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms that may be related to mild to moderate traumatic brain injury. This app provides users with information about concussion, a self-assessment instrument for symptoms and their severity, tools to help users build resilience and manage symptoms, and recommendations for community-based resources and support. Users can customize tools based on their references and can integrate their own contacts, photos, and music. This app can be used by itself, but it may be more effective in combination with treatment by a healthcare professional. Concussion Coach was created by VA’s Rehabilitation and Prosthetic Services, the National Center for PTSD and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology.
What's New in Version 1.0.1

You must be joking?
I suffered a concussion 4 days ago. I'm still housebound by dizziness and pain. The app assessed my moderate symptoms and proceeded to suggest ways to manage symptoms.
Feeling distressed suggestion: go to the beach written over a smiley face..umm I'm in Tennessee and get dizzy at random moments.
Headache suggestion: go to the bookstore -also written over a smiley face.
This is just another example of how the government spends recklessly and manages to under serve veterans at every turn.
Designer: please learn basic info about concussions and the garbage you have written can be changed to actually help someone. It was worth the splitting headache to write this so no one else has to be immensely let down. Good luck and happy beach and book store browsing.
