Neuro Kinetics Receives HHS Therapeutic Discovery Grant to Further Research Into Early Diagnosis of Sports Concussions
Date:11/18/2010

accurate diagnosis of sports concussions continues the company's strategy of expanding the clinical utility of its testing equipment and the range of tests that can be conducted with them.

The company also is engaged in extensive research with a number of U.S. military hospitals and healthcare facilities to develop new techniques for early diagnosis of TBI and mTBI suffered by soldiers from roadside blasts in Afghanistan and Iraq.  The investigations center on whether neuro-otologic measurements included in the battery of tests available through Neuro Kinetics' I-Portal® NOTC (Neuro-Otologic Test Center) and I-Portal® VNG (Video Nystagmography) systems can provide objective and repeatable neuro-physiologic evaluations for mTBI.  If so, accurate diagnosis of mTBI -- and therefore improved care -- would be possible.

NKI is the pioneer of the renowned computerized Barany (rotational) chair to test for vestibular and neurological issues. The company's equipment and related software generate precise motion, ocular motor, and optokinetic stimuli in conjunction with highly accurate measurement of the eye's horizontal, vertical, pupil and torsional responses or reflexive reactions to the stimuli.  The precision of the testing and accuracy of results helps clinicians develop more timely and accurate diagnosis.

"We believe that we on the verge of a new era in diagnostic testing and that the eye is the portal to the brain.  Abnormal responses of the eye can be the first indication of more than 200 diseases and conditions," said Schroeder. "With the quality of life for our soldiers and athletes at stake, our work in the development of objective and accurate diagnosis of brain injuries could benefit many, many people."
