EyeSeeCam vHIT 1.3: A step forward for clinical evaluations
The step up to version 1.3 from 1.2 introduces several features that improve the product, including the saccade table and a default SHIMP protocol. Michelle Renee Petrak, Director of Clinical Audiology at Interacoustics, asserts that:
“The saccade table is one of the biggest new features of the EyeSeeCam vHIT software. It offers so much new clinical information that wasn’t present in 1.2. In addition, having a default SHIMP protocol is very convenient for the clinician.”
A labor of hard work
Firstly, version 1.3 marks the return of the highly demanded real time eye activity monitoring. Secondly, the goggle design has been improved, including camera stabilizers that reduce oscillations when performing vertical head thrusts.
Another major feature is a newly introduced 3D head model, which rotates in the plane of the patient’s head movement and shows the patient’s semicircular canal activity.
These new and improved features came about as a labor of hard work. Michelle Renee Petrak comments that:
“We have spent a lot of time working with key opinion leaders, end users and doctors around the world to make our EyeSeeCam product even better, more user friendly and future-proof. Our hard work enables us to introduce features such as the 3D head model, which will prove to be valuable for clinicians and their patients.”
Other software improvements of note
The software interface has been overhauled, resulting in a solution that is easy to navigate, and which provides faster report generation. An element of the overhaul includes the ability to hide patient information, allowing for the safeguarding of data in situations of teaching or in the presence of observers.
