Neuro Kinetics to Preview Updated I-Portal(R) Technology & VEST(TM) Software at American Academy of Audiology Conference
PITTSBURGH, PA, Mar 21, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Neuro Kinetics, Inc. (NKI) (www.neuro-kinetics.com), global
manufacturers and marketers of precision eye-tracking and noninvasive
medical diagnostic equipment used for neurophysiologic and
neuro-otologic testing, said today that it will preview updates to
its I-Portal(R) technology and its VEST(TM) control and analysis
software at the Audiology NOW! 2012 conference in Boston, March 28-31
The updates improve user experience, combine processing functionality
into one computer, and enable patient eye-tracking video recording on
the I-Portal(R) NOTC.
The new I-Portal(R) 3.0 and VEST(TM) 7.0 software upgrades will be
demonstrated on its I-Portal(R) NOTC (Neuro-Otologic Test Center)
that will be operating at the conference.
"The annual audiology conference is an important event for Neuro
Kinetics," said Vince Kytka, director of Operations and Marketing.
"While we are expanding the range of medical specialists who utilize
our equipment and expanding our diagnostic testing capabilities, it
is the audiologists who operate this technology and most often
evaluate the data. We are eager to showcase our advances for them."
Audiologists -- as well as ENT's, neuro-otologists,
neuro-ophthalmologists and neurologists -- use NKI's I-Portal
technology, including VEST software, to conduct a variety of
oculomotor tests, including dynamic vestibular, saccade, pursuit and
optokinetic tests to assess balance and central and peripheral
Improvements to the I-Portal technology and VEST software are:
-- an extensive redesign of the User Interface;
-- now running on Windows(R) 7 platform allowing VEST to capitalize on
the increased efficiency and performance of the new 64-bit Windows
-- only one computer now required enabling new video-saving and playback
features on the I-Portal NOTC systems;
-- a new report structure with a selection matrix that provides an
intuitive and more robust user interface streamlining the process of
creating patient reports and documentation and using less paper;
-- Improved performance of pupil detection and torsion algorithms with
torsion now running at 100 hertz;
"These newest enhancements to our software reflect our ongoing strategy
of leading the markets with innovations in product and software
design and superior service," said Kytka. "We're anxious to share
with our friends in the audiology field their good observations we
have been able to implement with the hard work of our software
