The ‘Hess Test Lite’ app provides a simple method for recording and documenting the function and co-ordination of the extra-ocular muscles in the standard Hess Chart notation. Using the Apple iPad, Hess Screen (and Lees Screen) results can be documented electronically within the Hess Test application, enabling the records to be stored and retrieved.

This allows the user to auto-connect the response points, reducing the time needed for analysis.

Also included in the software is an integrated patient test results database and patient retrieval function, allowing a patients historical results to be reviewed and shared between interdisciplinary teams.

This innovative app enables customers to meet the increasing need to create electronic patient records, using software which can easily be combined into their daily clinical practice.
