SENSODETECT® BERA IMPROVES EFFICIENCY IN PSYCHIATRIC CARE

 

BERA

The Technology

SensoDetect BERA (Brainstem Evoked Response Audiometry) is a diagnostic aid for healthcare professionals (HCPs) within psychiatric care. The BERA technology helps increase diagnosis and treatment efficiency, reduce hospitalization costs, and improve life for people with mental illness.

The technology operates on a unique method of stimuli and measurement of brainstem activity. The BERA diagnostic aid can help the HCP set an accurate diagnosis in less time than previously possible with traditional methods. The tool measures the patient's brainstem function by stimulating the brain with sound. From audiograms, discrepancies in brainstem activity can be found when compared to healthy population audiograms.

For HCPs our method of acoustic stimulation, can be used as a complement to other qualitative observations when screening patients. The objective is to increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of psychiatric care and, in the long run, reduce healthcare costs for patients, healthcare systems, and society at large.

Brainstem evoked response audiometry is fast, safe, and easy to use. The test is objective and can be administered on both on patients who are either sleeping or awake.

How it works

Diagnoses of mental illness are related to different parts of the brain. By stimulating the brain and comparing the response to a healthy population, you can get an indication of what disease the patient may be suffering from, if any. The comparison is performed by the application of various algorithms on the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) curves. Health care professionals use these key insights to aid in existing psychiatric diagnostic tools and methods.

Measurement

The actual measurement takes 15 to 20 minutes, and is a simple procedure patented by SensoDetect, and can be administered by a trained nurse or caretaker. The patient is seated in a dark and quiet room, and clicks are presented to the patient through headphones, and the brainstem response is collected through five connected electrodes.

Analysis

The collected brainstem activity data is sent to SensoDetect for brain analysis support (BAS). SensoDetect translates the data into an audiogram with curves representing the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR). The ABR is compared to both the healthy population and diagnosed groups of patients with ADHD, autism and schizophrenia to provide unbiased decision support for diagnosis and adequate treatment. Each discrepancy in the curve can be related to one of the diseases. The audiograms are sent to a health care professional, who reviews the results as a complement to other observations in the screening process.

Benefits

 

Asset 10@2x

Unique and objective diagnostic aid

SensoDetect BERA is the sole fully objective diagnostic aid available on the market. The diagnosis results cannot be affected by the patient or the health care professional.

Asset 9@2x

Reducing time on diagnosis validation

A complete SensoDetect BERA test takes approximately 30 minutes to perform. You will receive the test results immediately. Hence, time can be reallocated from screening to treatment. 

Asset 12@2x

Finding the right treatment faster

SensoDetect BERA can test the effect of medication shortly after commencing the treatment, eliminating the need for revisits and reducing the overall costs of psychiatric care.
