Study Explores New Technology for Sports-Related Concussion Diagnosis

Dec 3, 2018

Neuro Kinetics (NKI) and Allegheny Health Network (AHN) collaborated on a new study that explores the use of video-oculography for diagnosing and managing concussions. The study was recently published in the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation and compared 50 concussed high school athletes to 170 high school athletes with no concussions using NKI’s Portal®  Video Nystamograph technology. The study revealed multiple oculomotor, vestibular, and reaction time (OVRT) deficits in the students who were concussed, including a correlation between concussions that were more than 21 days post injury and a metric known as optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) gain.
