PROFESSIONAL HEALTH TOOL
Neuropsychological and ecological
assessments in real time
IDENTIFICATION OF COGNITIVE ALTERATIONS BY VIRTUAL REALITY
Good Cells EVAL is an innovative and powerful assessment tool created to propose cognitive tests in ecological environment aﬁn to highlight alterations in real situations. This health tool meets the expectations of practitioners who wish to analyze the difficulties really experienced by patients in everyday life. Good Cells EVAL solves this need with our virtual reality know-how in partnership with CMRR Lille.
Virtual reality technology offers a more efficient diagnosis. It immerses the subject in an extremely realistic virtual world without stress, interference or disruption, for real-time ecological testing.
The computerization of the data collected highlights the different variables involved during the evaluation and facilitates their reading thanks to the computer records (data).
In the physical world, if many variables are highly correlated, it is often difficult to measure and recognize the inﬂuence of a variable on a behavior. Good Cells EVAL technology can decouple these variables and isolate various parameters to better understand the patient’s cognitive problems.
Its performances can thus be measured according to various criteria: number and types of errors, duration, exploratory conduct… In simplifying the cross-referencing of the collected data, the evaluation is refined and the diagnosis becomes more precise.
IMPROVED COGNITIVE PROGNOSIS
The earlier and more precise the diagnosis, the better the preservation of brain capacity. Now Good Cells EVAL allows a more fitted diagnostic assessment and its virtual reality is a real asset to motivate patients of all ages to submit to tests and experiments. They willingly lend themselves to the game, seduced by its innovative aspect, playful and close to reality.
Good Cells EVAL frees time through its efficiency and allows to increase the number of patients during consultation appointments for tests.
Good Cells Eval allows to highlight the deﬁcits but also the preserved functions by evaluating very precisely :
- initiation of the action
- spontaneous mental flexibility
- update in working memory
- resistance to interference
- division of attention
« Virtual reality is different from what currently exists for neuropsychological tests. It makes it possible to bring a real situation in the tests without forgetting the notion of pleasure. »
Florence Pasquier – Head of department and professor of neurology at the CHRU of Lille and president of the federation Centre Mémoire de ressource et de recherche.
BENEFITS TO PATIENTS
- Pleasure to carry out tests that are fun and close to reality
- Sensation of protection and intimacy created by the non-anxiogenic virtual environment
- Sense of quality, serious and innovative medical care
BENEFITS FOR THERAPISTS…
- Relevance of the evaluation through direct observation of the patient’s actions
- Reliability of assessments thanks to ecological tests close to reality
- Accuracy of results by digital readings
- Fineness of diagnosis thanks to the cross-referencing of data
- Contribution to the regional big data research / health programme by collecting evaluation data by partitioning the identifying data.
Good Cells EVAL records all patient actions. These health data are essential for complementary analysis according to their pathologies, especially since the evolutionary nature of certain diseases requires rapid comparisons to monitor their progression.
Therefore, the therapist can, via a simple and intuitive interface, make a detailed reading of the evaluation from different angles. For example, he can look at specific points of the assessment in the presence of the patient to observe his reactions and know how he feels about the ecological exercises.
Good Cells EVAL immediately analyses the various evaluation tests to adapt the patient’s treatment as quickly as possible, according to the evolution of the disease.
Data mining highlights the patient’s preserved abilities and allows them to be exploited and valued in Good Cells TREAT virtual therapeutic training sessions that treat cognitive disorders.
