PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Medical diagnostic device manufacturer Neuro Kinetics, Inc., (NKI) (www.neuro-kinetics.com) will showcase the precision of its diagnostic devices and testing protocols at next week's AudiologyNOW! Conference (www.audiologynow.org) in Orlando, sponsored by the American Academy of Audiology (www.audiology.org).
"We have been specializing in balance and vestibular assessment technologies for more than 30 years," said Vince Kytka, NKI operations and marketing director. "The annual AudiologyNOW! Conference is an important opportunity to showcase the results of our focus and how audiologists can enhance their practices by upgrading their diagnostic tools."
Said Kytka, "Quality diagnosis requires quality data."
NKI's devices and its proprietary I-Portal® platform technology precisely measure and analyze oculomotor (eye movement) functions, helping audiologists and other clinicians detect a broad range of vestibular and neurological pathologies that can impact a patient's balance and equilibrium.
One of the company's products to be featured at AudiologyNOW! is the I-Portal NOTC (Neuro-Otologic Test Center) system featuring NKI's renowned Barany chair. The NOTC's generates measurements of the eye's horizontal, vertical, pupil and torsional responses or reflexive reactions to stimuli.
Tests that can be performed through the I-Portal NOTC include rotation and VNG tests (including SHA, pursuits, optokinetics and saccades).
NKI's work with leading audiologists, neurotologists and others on balance and equilibrium issues has led to the development of new tests and analysis for brain injuries resulting from battlefield explosions and concussions from athletic competitions. The company is under contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to carry out clinical trials using the I-Portal technology.
"We continue developing the science to see more," Kytka said. "We are eager to show our friends in the audiology field. Our message is that the precision of our tools can help them improve their practices and patient care."
