Provides early indicators for Parkinson’s and 16 other movement disorders.
RightEye Parkinson’s EyeQ supports the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease and 16 other movement disorders. A series of tests quickly measures and analyzes eye movement related to Parkinson’s and other movement disorders and provides real-time reports and recommendations leading to early intervention and improved care and outcomes.
This test of smooth pursuit eye movements and saccades is the culmination of more than 12 years of collaborative research between the VA and Virginia Commonwealth University, where Dr. Mark Baron, M.D., neurologist and interim director of VCU Parkinson’s and Movement Disorder Center, Dr. Paul Wetzel, PhD, associate professor biomedical engineering, and Dr. George Gitchel, associate director of research for the southeast/ Richmond Parkinson's Disease Research Education and Clinical Centers, have together seen and diagnosed thousands of individuals with movement disorders.
The incorrect diagnosis of Parkinson’s can lead a person down a long and expensive path of more expensive tests such as a PET scan to get the proper diagnosis or to inappropriate medication and side effects. The RightEye Parkinson’s EyeQ test can be used to properly indicate when people have Parkinson’s because the smooth pursuit ability, saccade accuracy and saccade latency are affected.
This test is in development and will be available in the coming months.
