Bertec’s Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP/IVR) combines immersive virtual environments with dual-balance force plate technology. The advancements in Bertec’s technology increase the clinical value of CDP in both assessment and targeted therapy interventions, especially for patients suffering from dizziness, balance problems and/or motion sensitivity. Training with immersive, virtual stimuli can increase patient motivation, adaptability and variability—all factors that positively affect patient outcomes.

 
  • Next generation CDP

  • Immersive virtual reality training

  • Expanded assessment and treatment protocols

  • Enhanced visual stimulus

  • Low profile for easy access

  • Touch screen display and remote control

 

The IVR is able to take you to different levels. It's an evolving product that is limitless on what you can do, both evaluation- and treatment-wise.

Next generation CDP

Bertec’s extensive biomechanical engineering experience enables a technologically superior and clinically robust computerized dynamic posturography system. The use of immersive virtual reality unlocks endless training and visual assessment scenarios previously unavailable to clinicians and simply impossible with a mechanical surround.

Training with immersive, virtual stimuli

Increase patient adaptability, variability, and motivation with immersive and modular experiences for patients at any level of treatment and recovery. Working side-by-side with your patient, create compelling visual conflict using a library of stimuli that allow real-time modification of difficulty parameters.

Ergonomic design

The CDP/IVR’s low step-up profile provides easy access for your patients suffering from dizziness, balance problems, and/or motion sensitivity; its dynamic motion base intelligently hides its hinges to avoid physical and psychological trip hazards. Stay close and hands-on with your patient using the dedicated static clinician area and wireless remote.

Vision Advantage

 

The Bertec Vision Advantage (BVA) identifies dysfunction in the vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) per the Dynamic Visual Acuity Test. The BVA provides a more objective test than the standard clinical DVA test using an eye chart. The BVA also includes a Gaze Stability Test that identifies when the VOR falls below normal limits and whether there is an asymmetry between the left and right side. These advanced capabilities allow the clinician to customize treatment to the patient, resulting in optimal patient outcomes.

 
  • Wireless and light weight head tracker

  • Next generation VOR assessments

  • Patient-specific baseline comparison

  • Automatic sensor calibration

  • New technology allows for unrestricted patient movements and more flexibility for clinicians

  • Optimal patient outcomes

BER.VisionAdvantageUse.v5.jpg

Next generation VOR assessments

Do your patients have the optimal eye and head coordination to maximize their performance? Find out using the Bertec Vision Advantage system, which identifies dysfunction in the vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) per the Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) Test and measures the head velocity, axis, and direction where visual accuracy breaks down per the Gaze Stabilization Test (GST).

BER.VisionAdvantagePackage.v1.jpg

Wireless and lightweight

Eliminating the need for long, unruly cords, the wireless and lightweight head-worn sensor ensures that your patient’s head movement is un-hindered and free-moving. The sensor is designed to detect head movement in all directions, so our software can distinguish whether a patient’s head is moving correctly for each test.

Assessment Protocols

Visual Processing Time (VPT) – this quick screen ensures the patient can process the optotype (letter “E”) stimuli quickly enough to use DVA and GST protocols accurately and reliably.

Baseline Visual Acuity (BVAT) measures a patient’s visual acuity with the head stationary. The results are then used for comparison to visual acuity while the head is moving during DVA and GST protocols.

Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) provides an assessment of the smallest character the patient can identify accurately while the head is moving at a specific and constant velocity. Data can be collected for any axis of rotation (yaw, pitch, or roll) and are analyzed and reported for each direction of rotation separately. Results indicating significant loss of visual acuity in one or both directions are considered an indication of VOR impairment.

Gaze Stabilization Test (GST) measures the head velocity, axis, and direction where visual accuracy breaks down. Results provide insight into a patient’s effective use of VOR as it relates to functional demands for activities of daily living, and clinicians can use the data to make training decisions and document progress.

Patient Training uses computerized VOR training to simulate gaze stabilization X1 exercises, with selectable controls for velocity and direction of head movement. Training exercises are customized to patient performance on DVA and GST and can be programmed to progress through varying levels of challenge depending on patient’s successful completion. Progress reports are automatically stored for printing.

COBALT

COBALT

COBALT

 

COBALT™ (COncussion BALance Test) is a balance test for athletes. COBALT can be used as part of a concussion screening and management program by providing an objective measure of balance control when relying on visual, somatosensory and vestibular demands. The patented COBALT protocol includes a unique set of testing conditions that places high demands on the visual and vestibular systems that traditional static balance testing does not provide. Research shows these more difficult conditions yield sensitivity in identifying individuals with suspected concussion.

 
  • Brief screening test designed for athletes

  • Challenging but achievable

  • Provides objective data about balance performance using accurate measurements with a dual-balance force plate

  • Objective postural sway data combined with simplified scoring system

  • Standardized test conditions, including head turn and visual motion sensitivity

  • Fully portable

BER.COBALT.v2.jpg

Designed for athletes

The COncussion BALance Test (COBALT) was specifically developed for the brief screening of athletes as part of a concussion management program. Utilize COBALT as part of a concussion screening and management program by providing an objective measure of balance control when relying on visual, somatosensory, and vestibular demands.

Challenging but achievable conditions

COBALT benefits include: eight standardized test conditions (including head turn and visual motion sensitivity as well as conditions to increase vestibular challenge), pre-season baseline testing (using a four-condition screening version), and sensitivity to changes in performance.

Accurate measurements

The Bertec dual-balance force plate is durable and portable allowing for highly accurate and reliable data collection under the most rigorous testing environments.
