BioMedical Systems

Biomedical Systems

Developed by clinical experts who pioneered the field, ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the most-widely used and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system.  ImPACT provides trained clinicians with neurocognitive assessment tools and services that have been medically accepted as state-of-the-art best practices — as part of determining safe return to play decisions. Through tools such as the ImPACT Concussion Management Model ImPACT addresses the need for an accurate, medically accepted assessment system that is used as part of an overall concussion management protocol. This Model builds partnerships with healthcare professionals and athletic trainers to offer training and resources for affordable concussion management. ImPACT benefits athletes at all levels of play, from professional sports teams to students and their parents. Impact has the largest database of clinical research (190 peer reviewed and over 125 independent studies) on concussion management, validating ImPACT’s model.  Further, ImPACT’s comprehensive normative data includes more than 75,000 (and growing) results, which provides reliability and validity of testing, even without a baseline.

Biodex

BIODEX

Balance Assessment Program for Concussion Management. The Biodex Balance Assessment Program for Concussion Management adds an objective neurophysical component that gives clinicians the ability to quantify the elements of balance before and after an injury occurs. Using the Clinical Test of Sensory Integration and Balance (mCTSIB), Biodex Balance Assessment can independently test all three sensory feedback systems.

King Devick Test

King-Devick Test

The King-Devick Test (K-D Test) is defined by Mosby’s Medical Dictionary as a tool for evaluation of saccade, consisting of a series of test cards of numbers. The test cards become progressively more difficult to read due to variability of spacing between the numbers. Both errors in reading and speed of reading are included in deriving a score Saccades are quick, simultaneous movements of both eyes.

The King-Devick Test was developed in 1976 by Alan King, O.D. and Steven Devick, O.D. as an indicator of saccadic performance as it relates to reading ability. In 1983, a sample of 1202 children ages six to fourteen was screened using the K-D Test. The study done by the State University of New York (SUNY) concluded that the test was quick and easy to score and could be administered by non- eye care practitioners. For more than 25 years, the King-Devick Test has been a proven indicator of oculomotor inefficiencies regarding eye movements during reading. The King-Devick Test (K-D Test) is utilized as a tool in schools, eye care and psychologist offices to help detect learning disabilities, including dyslexia.

The King-Devick Test (K-D Test) is an objective, physical test based on the measurement of the speed of Rapid Number Naming (reading aloud single digit numbers from three test cards), and captures impairment of eye movements, attention, language, and other correlates of suboptimal brain function. The sum of the three test card time scores constitutes the summary score for the entire test. The test can be administered in less than two minutes. In 2011, researchers published findings supporting the utility of the King-Devick Test as a sideline remove-from-play concussion screening.

The term called “heart rate variability” means that minute-by-minute (or even second-by-second) your heart rate fluctuates depending on internal and external stimulus. If your resting heart rate is 60 beats per minute, it makes sense that your heart would beat 600 times in 10 minutes. While that translates to one beat per second on average, in reality, it may be that over a 10-second time period, there are five beats in three seconds and then five beats in the next seven second. When we are young and/or more physically fit, we have greater heart rate variability, which means that our cardiovascular system is responding to various stimuli and is being appropriately controlled by several different neurological factors. As you age, there is a decline in the plasticity of the heart to react moment by moment to any changes in the need for blood flow and oxygen to the rest of the body; physical inactivity has a similar effect here fore, sedentary individuals and older adults usually have low heart rate variability. Low heart rate variability is associated with greater risk for cardiovascular events.hensive normative data includes more than 75,000 (and growing) results, which provides reliability and validity of testing, even without a baseline.
