PITTSBURGH, May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Neuro Kinetics, Inc.
manufacturers of noninvasive medical diagnostic equipment used
worldwide for neuro-physiologic, neuro-otologic, vestibular and
neurological testing, said today that it has released version 6.10
of its VEST™ control and analysis software.
Clinical specialists use NKI’s I-Portal® devices and VEST
software to conduct vestibular, oculomotor and optokinetic tests to
detect and measure balance- and dizziness-related pathologies, as
well as for research and validation of these tests to detect
concussions or mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).
“We take pride in being the innovative leader in our markets,”
said Vince Kytka, director, operations and marketing. “With
our updated software, we are enabling our clinical users around the
world to do more for their patients.”
The most significant upgrade is the enhancement of the Dynamic
Unilateral Centrifugation with SVV test. It was modified so that
the user can collect multiple (two to four) SVV data points during
each eccentric position. This allows for separate
calculations of mean and standard deviation for each right, center
and left patient positions. The results have also been added to the
analysis and report feature in VEST.
Version 6.10 also includes improved user interfaces,
- The optokinetic test analysis table is now sorted by OKN
velocity for easier viewing.
- The analysis simulation (animated playback of eye movement)
page has been reorganized and relabeled for easier use during data
In addition, 10 bugs identified by Neuro Kinetics and its users
over the past year have been fixed.
Some of the fixes include:
- The VNG eye video file saving error.
- The upbeat and downbeat nystagmu
