Brain Gauge Assessment
The Brain Gauge is a cognitive assessment tool that measures brain health by testing sensory perceptions in your fingertips. It is a small device that will “buzz” your fingers in a specific way and then ask questions about what you felt. It then analyzes your responses using clinically-proven neuroscience. It provides objective and quantitative metrics that target multiple aspects of information processing in the Central Nervous System, and the metrics are translated into an intuitive, easy-to-understand format.
Here are some of the areas that it measures:
- Speed – How quickly the brain reacts to stimulation.
- Focus – The brain’s ability to concentrate on the task at hand.
- Fatigue – How quickly the brain begins to tire out when stressed.
- Accuracy – The brain’s ability to detect small differences.
- Sequencing – The brain’s ability to identify the order of events.
- Timing Perception – The brain’s ability to detect the duration of events.
- Plasticity – The brain’s ability to respond and adapt to change.
- Connectivity – The brain’s ability to communicate and coordinate.
Below is a video that tells a little about Cortical Metrics – the inventor of Brain Gauge.
It takes about 20 minutes to do one assessment. This would be an amazing tool to use with the IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback as a way to visually see how your brain heals with treatments.
The Brain Gauge MD has been listed as a medical device with the FDA and is compliant with 21 CFR 882.1470 (Computerized Cognitive Assessment Aid).
