Neurologists, ENT or vestibular rehabilitation specialists know the difficulty in obtaining an accurate estimate of vestibular or neurological disorders in the office setting. To solve this problem, Clear Health Media has created a much-needed solution. The Visual Vertical App provides clinicians with the ability to quickly and easily test for lesions in the vestibular and central nervous systems by measuring subjective visual vertical.
Using the iPhone’s standardized internal device, the Visual Vertical app measures the phones position relative to gravity. The onboard system of the iPhone virtually eliminates error and provides you with a quick and highly accurate assessment. Prior to the creation of the app by Clear Health Media, clinicians needed expensive specialized facilities or struggled to create for themselves the equipment that was needed.
The subjective visual vertical has been shown to be a sensitive and reliable test for brainstem lesions and is one of the few tests available for otolithic function. Using the Visual Vertical App is simple. All that is required is your iPhone, some sticky bluetac, and a translucent plastic bucket. In less than five minutes, you will have an accurate assessment of your patient.
Clear Health Media produces health related software and promotional material for health care practitioners. Dr Matthew D.Holmes, a practicing clinician and clinical educator, established the company in 2010. The Visual Vertical app is available for purchase in the iTunes store for US$9.99, and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
