OCAT technology allows physicians to assess their patients right in their office.” With the OCAT device, any changes in cognitive function can be detected early and continuously, and the results can help you providers to make a practical diagnosis.

Objective Cognitive Assessment Testing (OCAT) SYSTEM

The OCAT system is a cutting-edge, hardware and software system that allows for an objective and neuro functional measurement of cognition using the electroencephalogram activity of the brain (EEG), electrocardiogram activity of the heart (ECG), visual and auditory processing speeds (evoked potentials), and subjective neuropsychological survey.
The OCAT system is a device designed to help physicians effectively measure and manage memory loss, cognitive impairment, and other stress-related neurological conditions. A neuro- functional physiology report of the results is provided, as well as a memory report including a second opinion, data summary, raw data, and images.
The OCAT system is portable, easy-to-use, non-invasive, and pain-free. A physician is not required to operate the device and it is covered by most insurance plans with attractive reimbursements.
The OCAT system enables physicians to obtain a collection of the patient’s neuro-physiological biomarkers, which profile the patient’s neurological function. This allows the physician to gain additional clinical information vital to making a well-informed patient-care decision.

Objective Cognitive Assessment Testing (OCAT) SYSTEM OVERVIEW

The OCAT system enables the physician to quickly and objectively assess cognitive impairment in the office in order to aid in the diagnosis of causative conditions. As the population ages, the prevalence and impact of cognitive impairment can have a significant effect on individuals, families, and society as a whole, A decline in cognitive abilities is now believed to be a process that occurs over 20 to 30 years, eventually leading to poor cognitive outcomes. Cognitive testing as early as the age of 45 can be beneficial. Current paper-based assessments used in primary care have difficulty determining the dementia subtype, resulting in less successful treatment outcomes. As many as 86% of deceased patients suffering from dementia were misdiagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. The OCAT system can help assess patients up to 15 years prior to the onset of symptoms. Early detection of cognitive disorders allows for quicker treatment of the associated causes, such as nutritional deficiencies, stress, thyroid problems.

Practical Benefits:

  • Improves clinical outcomes through early, objective assessment
  • Detects declines in memory markers 15 years prior to the manifestation of symptoms
  • Detects head injuries that a CT or MRI may be unable to detect
  • Quick and easy functional assessment in the office
  • Uses qEEG, ERP, and LoRETA imaging, EEG, and ERP as reliable measures for head injury
  • Empowers the physician to initiate necessary treatment early
  • Allows initiation of effective treatment options, altering the path of the disease state
