Comment:  Interesting that they are taking about neuroplasticity and a brake away from compensation training. This is an example of a simple Functional Neurological program that was been approved for billing loads of money from insurance with fancy equipment that can be done without. The bottom line is that when you have damage to your brain you first localize where the lesion or weakness is and drive rehabilitation into that. Listen Mom’s when you raise your kids you are inclined to encourage them to do more of what they’re good at. Against that instinct would be to encourage them to do those tasks and hobbies that don’t come easy for them. Now your brain is your child, your or my job is to determine how best to develop them by making logical choices that would be best serving the growth and true balance in the long run!

 

NovaVision VRT is now available at Intercoastal Neurology to rehabilitate vision deficits once considered untreatable

BOCA RATON , FLORIDA — NovaVision, Inc. today announced Intercoastal Neurology, part of Intercoastal Medical Group, Inc. of Sarasota, Fla., now offers its NovaVision VRT Vision Restoration Therapy (VRT). VRT is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive medical device that can help restore vision lost as a result of stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI) a condition previously considered untreatable. While speech, physical and occupational therapies are the long-standing treatment regimens for stroke and brain trauma patients, VRT is the first FDA-cleared clinical application of rehabilitation for vision loss.

Intercoastal Medical Group (IMG) is a professional association of 56 physicians in 14 specialties with six locations in Sarasota and Manatee counties. IMG physicians are board certified in each of their specialties and are staff members of both Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Doctor’s Hospital of Sarasota.

“NovaVision is dedicated to expanding the accessibility of VRT to patients across the United States,” said NovaVision President and CEO Navroze Mehta. “Working with leading regional medical groups like Intercoastal Neurology is essential to NovaVision’s expansion of VRT, and enables NovaVision to offer VRT to patients at local, centralized locations that maintain the quality of care and prestige found at larger NovaVision Partner Clinic medical institutions.”

Vision is a important part of life!

About NovaVision

NovaVision, Inc., headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, develops and provides scientifically based, innovative neuro-stimulation medical devices and comprehensive solutions to non-invasively restore the vision of patients with neurological visual impairments.

FDA-cleared in 2003, NovaVision® Vision Restoration Therapy (VRT) works by enhancing neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to adapt and form new connections to compensate for injury. NovaVision’s VRT device maps areas where vision may be improved, and then targets the brain’s vision- processing areas.

VRT has been validated by 15 years of research with clinical studies published in leading journals including Nature Medicine, Neurology, and The Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience.

Recommended and prescribed by leading neurological, eye and rehabilitation centers nationwide.

What is VRT?

Vision Restoration Therapy is a daily, at-home rehabilitation therapy that can restore lost vision caused by stroke or brain injury. While other rehabilitation modalities have long been a standard of care for stroke and TBI patients, VRT addresses vision, an important missing rehabilitation.

When diagnosed, neurological vision loss has historically been treated with techniques to compensate for brain injury rather than restore function through neuroplasticity as with VRT.

The therapy is performed on an FDA-cleared medical device typically for 6 months, with remote updates tailored to the patient’s deficit.

A VRT Candidate has:

• An acquired brain injury

• Partial vision loss

• Visual acuity better than 20/200

• No physical damage to the eye

• No major cognitive impairments

• The ability to sit upright and focus on a task for 15-30 minutes

• Motivation toward rehabilitation; can commit to approximately an hour of daily therapy

• Support from friends and family.

Also you should know it’s very important that you do these programs within a tolerance with they’re individual metabolic conditioning and not to accede it or you will not progress. The type, frequency and duration of the individual therapies are of extreme importance.
