Comprehensive Concussion Care (C3) is the latest specialty care facility to onboard the virtual reality-based EYE-SYNC system to support the growing needs of patients in their local area, SyncThink announces.
Comprehensive Concussion Care (C3), located in the Kansas City area, specializes in the multi-system approach to concussion management. It uses an extensive evaluation process to identify the source of concussion-related symptoms, allowing for an individualized treatment program to target the dysfunctions identified in the evaluation. It works closely with other community-based clinicians to guide return to learn and return to play in a safe and effective manner.
“It has been said that the eyes are the gateway to the brain. This is certainly true for concussion patients who often struggle with ocular pain, visual impairment, light sensitivity, or eye movement dysfunction after a head injury. For clinicians treating concussion, this requires training and understanding of the ocular system and how to best manage visual sensory-motor dysfunction,” said Tim Kalkman, PA-C, Co-founder of C3, the release continues.
“Our partnership and use of the EYE-SYNC platform now provides us the ability to utilize objective assessments and clinic-based vision training options for our patients, and to more readily advance them to a full recovery,” he adds.
EYE-SYNC uses high speed, high-fidelity infrared cameras to capture subtle eye movements, many of which cannot be observed through a standard clinical evaluation. Depending on the type of eye movement, a clinician can utilize this objective analysis to decipher between brain systems involved that may be performing poorly or are impaired.
It was recently designated by the FDA as a Breakthrough Device for aid to concussion assessment, recognizing the potential to solve an important unmet need, per the release.
