Opinion on:
“C-Eye – a system for assessing the condition and neurorehabilitation of patients with neurological dysfunctions and developmental disorders”

C-Eye – a system for assessing the condition and neurorehabilitation of patients with neurological dysfunctions and developmental disorders” is a unique, innovative system that enables contact with and assessment of basic cognitive functions and the rehabilitation of patients with whom classical methods of diagnosis and therapy cannot be used, due to significant limitations in language and motor functions. The system can be used to assess the state of consciousness and cognitive functions of patients with severe palsy or paresis of the limbs and cranial nerves, as well as patients with aphasia (e.g. after cranio-cerebral trauma, stroke, proliferative disease, congenital malformations, perinatal trauma, neurodegenerative disease etc.). C-Eye can also be used in the rehabilitation of cognitive functions, especially attention, understanding speech, updating memory content (both semantic and episodic memory), as well as visual and spatial perception.

Thanks to the innovative technological and programming solutions, the system offers the following unquestionable advantages:

  • it can be adjusted to the patient’s level of ability (e.g. visual field limitations, prolonged reaction time, information processing rate); material presented in the diagnostic and training parts can be personalized (the possibility of introducing any content, which is, for instance, emotionally relevant for the patient or consistent with his/her education);
  • it allows for the spontaneous creation of messages by the patient.

Reference letter

The C-Eye system has been used in my centre since October 2014 as:

  • a diagnostic tool that supports the assessment of the neurological condition of patients who do not communicate verbally, and whose condition does not allow for a clear and objective assessment by standard behavioural observation methods,
  • a therapeutic device (for neurorehabilitation), particularly in speech therapy and neuropsychology — stimulation of the cognitive processes of patients and the modulation of emotional dysfunctions,
  • a tool for communicating with the patient at the level of “non-verbal dialogue”. A C-Eye examination is suitable for patients with various neurological disorders, especially patients with limited consciousness, requiring a special therapeutic approach.

Using the C-Eye in daily medical and therapeutic practice can have a positive effect on maintaining seldom-used neural pathways in the central nervous system, and on the emergence of new synaptic connections, as a result of performing regular activities that train the cognitive processes and so stimulate the central nervous system.

The C-Eye system also worksas a tool for assessing the patient’s emotional state. It is used as a communication aid in the selection of appropriate pharmacological treatment for patients who lack the ability to communicate verbally.

Patients treated in my centre like to work with the C-Eye. In many cases, I observed an improvement in mood and even quality of life, achieved by providing the patient with a feeling of agency and development.

Interest in the C-Eye in my clinic is growing. At present, C-Eye diagnostic and therapeutic sessions are offered also as an outpatient treatment.

Using the eye-tracking technology in working with students who have special educational needs enables performing a variety of exercises that enhance such functions as concentration, perception, visual analysis and synthesis, causal thinking, and mathematical understanding. The AssisTech product can be implemented in an educational process at all levels of education, significantly improving the efficiency of work with children who have special educational needs. The use of a computer, the attractiveness of the exercises, and an interesting graphical interface prevent monotony during classes, can increase the learning motivation of students, and bring a lot of fun to the tasks.

The device works well in establishing communication with people who are in the state of limited consciousness and with deep motor aphasia or dysarthria. In addition, the C-Eye system complements and in some cases enables neurological and neuropsychological diagnosis. Apart from obtaining an accurate diagnosis, I use the device for conducting neurorehabilitation of cognitive functions. With C-Eye, I can provide language, memory, visual-spatial, logical thinking, and verbal reasoning exercises, where verbal methods cannot be applied.
