OCAT TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

The OCAT technology allow physicians to assess their patients right in their office. With the OCAT, any changes in cognitive function can be detected early and continuously, and the results can assist providers make practical diagnosis and improve patient outcomes.

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 is 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 an over-read, data summary, raw data, and images.

The OCAT 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 reliable reimbursement.

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 objectively assess cognitive impairment in the office in order to aid in treating neurological conditions that otherwise can go undetected. The prevalence and impact of cognitive impairment can have a significant impact on individuals, families, and society as a whole.  A decline in cognitive abilities is now believed to be a process that occurs over a period of 20 to 30 years, eventually leading to poor cognitive outcomes. Cognitive testing is never too early and can be beneficial. As in the case of dementia, it has been documented that as many as 86% of deceased patients suffering from dementia were misdiagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. The OCAT system has been documented to help assess patients up to 15 years prior to the onset of symptoms.   It is early detection of cognitive disorders that allow for quicker treatment of the associated causes, even conditions such as nutritional deficiencies, stress, and thyroid-related ailments.

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
