The study investigates the feasibility and safety of the telemedical implementation of three diagnostic oculomotor tests using a video-oculography device and an extended teleconferencing system. The testing battery comprises Halmagyi's head impulse test, test for nystagmus and test of skew (vertical misalignment) known as the HINTS protocol. Previously published data have shown high sensitivity and specificity of the protocol for the discrimination of central and peripheral causes of acute vestibular syndrome. In this study the three tests will be executed on 30 healthy subjects using video goggles (EyeSeeCam, Interacoustics GmbH, Germany) connected to a mobile wireless-workstation for bidirectional audiovisual communication in a clinical environment (MEYTEC GmbH, Germany). A newly developed remote control and video conferencing solution allows the execution and evaluation of the HINTS protocol in a telemedical setup.
The examination is guided by a remote physician using the help of a trained assistant attending to the subject. Corresponding clinical bedside tests will be executed for comparison. Primary endpoint is feasibility of the three diagnostic tests in a telemedical setting. Safety as well as accuracy of the telemedical versus bedside examination will be analyzed as secondary outcome measures. Aim of the study is to improve diagnostic accuracy for patients with acute vestibular syndrome in remote areas where specialists are rare.

A substantial number of the world's population appears to end with moderate to severe long-term disability after stroke. Persistent uncontrolled stroke risk factor leads to unpredicted recurrent strok...
Stroke is a leading cause of death in Brazil. Knowledge about the clinical manifestations of stroke as well as its risk factors and its management is still poor in the country. We intended to assess t...
Novel neuroprotective therapies are desperately needed to improve neuronal recovery after ischemic stroke and extend the therapeutic window or offset some of the adverse effects of tissue-type plasmin...
Most individuals have sensory disturbances post stroke, and these deficits contribute to post-stroke balance impairment. The haptic-based biofeedback (BF) system appears to be one of the promising too...

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades. (McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed, v19, p223)

Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
