[WEB SITE] Researchers Are Developing a Mobile App to Assist Post-TBI Patients – Rehab Managment

A decision support mobile app to help facilitate safety and independent living among TBI patients after returning home from a treatment facility is being developed in collaboration between researchers from Alabama-based Shepherd Center and ChartAssist LLC.

To assist with decision-making, the mobile app will be engineered to help improve the assessment of functional mobility, household activities, sleep, and safety risk.

Such decisions include making differential diagnostic assessments, selecting the most appropriate home- and community-based services and supports, measuring progress, and updating healthcare and supervision needs, according to the researchers, in a media release from Shepherd Center.

The app will also feature the ability to provide multidisciplinary treatment recommendations for TBI patients, as well as to set goals and track outcomes.

“I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with Shepherd Center and Dr Ron Seel, director of brain injury research, to help people with TBI and their families,” says Daniel Joye, president of ChartAssist, in the release. “The need for a decision support app is clear, and our company’s work on multidisciplinary rehabilitation in the mental health community is a great fit for helping people with brain injuries, their families and rehabilitation professionals.”

“I was quickly impressed by the innovative software development work that ChartAssist has done in the mental health community, “ states Ron Seel, PhD, the O. Wayne Rollins Director of Brain Injury Research at Shepherd Center, per the release.

“The software that ChartAssist has developed to facilitate person-centered, multidisciplinary rehabilitation assessment and treatment has broad applicability to helping people with brain injuries, who share many of the same chronic cognitive, behavioral, physical and health conditions experienced by people with mental health disabilities. Leveraging this work to develop secure, user-friendly, evidence-based decision support applications is a natural fit and could greatly improve people’s lives.”

Grants from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research, as well as the Shepherd Center Foundation, provided the seed money to develop the app.

[WEB SITE] FDA Approves Mobile App for Evaluating Traumatic Brain Injury

FDA Approves Mobile App for Evaluating Traumatic Brain Injury

A new app will soon be available to help clinicians diagnose traumatic brain injury in as little as five minutes in almost any setting, including environments of combat.

The app, called the Defense Automated Neurobehavioral Assessment (DANA), runs on multiple mobile platforms and was recently granted U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. “It’s like a brain thermometer,” stated Lt. Col. Chessley Atchison, a program manager for the Combat Casualty Care Research Program of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC). “And once we get it right, we’re going to put it fairly far forward in the field.”

According to the USAMRMC, DANA operates much like a video game. Service members will undergo a baseline series of on-screen exercises during which both their speed and accuracy are recorded. Those who may have had a serious head injury will then participate in a series of both cognitive efficiency tests and self-administered questionnaires. Afterward, a clinician will review the results, comparing them with the results of the baseline exercises. The combination of the app’s cognitive and psychological components allows for insight into the prevalence of symptoms related to both traumatic brain injury and posttraumatic stress disorder, USAMRMC said in a press statement.

USAMRMC stated that once DANA is fully validated for battlefield use, it may be used to help assess fitness for duty. The app is currently being tested on tablet devices.
