HeadCheck will ask you simple questions about how your child is feeling and based on symptoms can suggest whether you should see a doctor or call an ambulance.
The app could have helped Emily (pictured), who suffered from serious long-term memory and attention impairments as a result of multiple concussions sustained during equestrian.
Professor Vicki Anderson and her team are working with Curve Tomorrow, a health technology company embedded within Murdoch Children's to develop HeadCheck. A prototype app has been released for iPhone and the team are now launching a crowd funding campaign in an attempt to raise the $15,000 needed to complete the app for iPhone and to build a version for Android.
Supporters of the crowd funding campaign are given rewards for their pledges. Some of the rewards include a signed Carlton Guernsey, a fixed gear bike and in-app acknowledgement.
