VEST™ operating and neurotologic analysis software offers a visual and easy-to-use interface.

All I-Portal® NOTC, I-PAS™ and I-Portal SVNG system tests are built into one software platform, eliminating the need to learn multiple software.

I-Portal®, the VEST™ companion, captures and tracks precise, high-speed digital images of the eye.

New Features Improve Efficiencies and the User Experience on All NKI I-Portal® Devices

Studies increasingly show the value of OVRT-C (Oculomotor, Vestibular, Reaction Time, and Concussion) testing using NKI’s I-Portal systems.”

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Neuro Kinetics, Inc. Releases Enhanced VEST™ & I-Portal® Software
New Features Improve Efficiencies and the User Experience on All NKI I-Portal® Devices

Neuro Kinetics, Inc. (NKI) announced today that they have released VEST™ 8.2 and I-Portal® 6.2 software upgrades, both of which include numerous new features for users of I-Portal® NOTC (Neurotologic Test Center), I-Portal® VNG, and I-PAS™ (I-Portal® Portable Assessment System), NKI’s proprietary clinical eye tracking devices. I-Portal® captures eye-tracking video and eye position data, and works symbiotically with VEST™, which helps administer tests (e.g., presents visual stimuli, analyzes data, provides tools for inspecting and managing results, and stores patient and test information in an organized, accessible database). The new features improve efficiencies and the user experience on all NKI I-Portal® devices.
VEST™ 8.2 and I-Portal® Enhancements include:

• An auto-run setting which allows a clinician to program sequential tests and eliminate downtime between blocked
tests;
• Adjustable settings for optional patient and operator voice prompts;
• More efficient video saving and storage features;
• An entirely new electrooculography (EOG) utility analysis and user interface;
• Custom Test now displays motion sensor feedback collected by the I-Portal® Falcon™ video oculography. The
feedback results for both head position and velocity are viewed against the complementary eye position or
velocity data in the analysis window, which not only elevates the overall quality of data obtained but also
improves the efficiency of NKI’s I-Portal® systems.

NKI has begun shipping VEST™ 8.2 and I-Portal® 6.2 on new products, as well as upgrading customers’ existing systems.

Susan Zelicoff, Vice President of Marketing, explained, “NKI is constantly improving its VEST™ and I-Portal® software and analytics, because they are the foundations of our products.”

“It’s an opportune time for us to offer these enhancements, given the many reasons customers are looking to upgrade their existing systems or buy anew, she continued. “One reason is the steady obsolescence of FireWire technology. Second, Microsoft Corp. has announced it will no longer support Windows 7 Operating Systems in 2020. Third, and maybe most importantly, studies increasingly show the value of OVRT-C (Oculomotor, Vestibular, Reaction Time, and Cognitive) testing using NKI’s I-Portal systems.”

In a world of constant improvements, NKI’s next software release is well underway and is expected later this summer, concurrent with several new, game-changing tests. Pressure to release these new tests is in response to the high demand for additional measurement tools to help healthcare providers who treat patients with mTBI (mild traumatic brain injury) or concussions. NKI stands ready with solutions that continue to offer exceptional clinical utility and great value.
