Video-oculography

Video-oculography(VOG) uses a special set of goggles with infrared cameras that record various eye movements. We use our VOG to assess and measure: Your eye’s ability to stay steady with and without a point of reference Maintain focus on a target (gaze stability) Follow a moving target (smooth pursuits) Move quickly between targets (saccades) The reflexive response to a moving target as it passes by(optokinetic reflex) The visual system is the window to the brain and is closely related to...

Saccadometry

Our Saccadometer came all the way from Poland! This device allows us to measure fast eye movements called saccades. When we perform this test, we measure the speed at which your eyes move between targets, the accuracy of these movements, and the time it takes your brain to react after the target moves (latency). This test is very taxing for the brain, particularly for people who have suffered from a concussion. Click below to watch Dr. Ala perform a dynamic saccadometer trial....

Computerized Assessment of Postural Stability

Computerized Assessment of Postural Stability (CAPS) is a state-of-the-art dynamic posturography system that is used to measure balance and postural control. CAPS allows us to measure your sway patterns, which provides us a detailed understanding of your global postural stability. The CAPS unit measures your center of pressure on a specialized plate. Following a concussion (or mild traumatic brain injury), we typically see a center of pressure that is posterior (or backwards)...
