Clinician Portal

Physiotherapists have an easy to use portal to prescribe exercises and deploy them to the smartphone app for patients immediate use. The Clinician can see how each patient is progressing with the exercises and prescribe new exercises as they improve. The clinician can even give prescribed reading and media for the patient to better understand the treatment.

Wearable Head Sensor

This sensor is the very latest in movement sensing technology. This affordable wearable fits just behind the ear and can be given to the patient to take home with them. It connects to their smartphone via bluetooth and gives them instant feedback on how they are doing with the exercise.

Patient App

The patient app allows the patient to securely log in and receive their prescribed exercises and reading material. It also connects via bluetooth on the phone to the Head Sensor. Having the App at home empowers the patient to refresh their memory on how the exercise is to be done, gives them instant feedback on how they are doing and gives the healthcare practitioner a view practitioner.

VERTIGENIUS for Clinicians

Prescribing and teaching exercises are traditionally time-consuming for health care professionals and can be confusing for patients. Having to write out on paper a series of exercises, hoping that the patient has understood and will complete them properly is less than ideal.

– Track record of your patient’s symptoms and progress.
– Create an individually tailored programme for each patient
– Extensive Library of Custom-made exercise videos
– Contains an in-built metronome for gaze-stabilisation exercises

Prescribe a Programme

 

As a clinician you can create customised programmes for each of your patients and have them delivered right to their smartphone at the click of a button 

 

How does it work?

 

During assessment, you can use Vertigenius to perform and input recommended core physical outcome measures, such as:

  1. Balance Tests.
  2. Dynamic Visual Acuity.
  3. Gait Speed.

After assessment, Vertigenius’ extensive library of custom-created videos can be used to build a programme of exercises.  These can be individualised for frequency, intensity, type, and time of exercises.  Each individual programme is sent directly to the patient.

Included are:

  • Balance Exercises
  • Gait Exercises
  • Gaze Stabilisation Exercises
  • Habituation Exercises
  • Cervical Proprioception Exercises
  • Optokinetic Exercises
  • Vergence Exercises
  • Strengthening Exercises

A state of the art head sensor you can use at home.

The medical device is specifically designed for Vestibular Rehabilitation. It fits just above the ear, connects to your smartphone wirelessly via bluetooth and gives feedback as to your head movement during exercises.

VERTIGENIUS

For Patients   

So you’ve received a diagnosis, you’ve been given exercises to do, now what?

It can be overwhelming to leave a healthcare practitioner’s office with a series of instructions, and not be fully confident in how to carry them out.

Vertigenius employs a simple to use patient application that can be downloaded onto your device. This app allows your healthcare practitioner to send you forms to fill out ahead of consultation that can be done in the comfort of your own home. You can record your symptoms, concerns, and goals without worrying you may have forgotten something during your consultation.

During your assessment, your outcome measures are securely and easily recorded directly into the app.

Your healthcare professional can then select a series of exercises from our extensive custom-created video library. This allows them to create a programme tailored specifically to you. These exercises are performed directly with the use of the app, taking the guesswork out

of your programme.

What Our Patients Say

“I would absolutely recommend VERTIGENIUS to other patients with dizziness and balance problems”

“After using VERTIGENIUS with my healthcare professional, I feel so much more positive, I am not so overwhelmed, it really had the power to influence my life”

“The progress graphs were a great help to see how I was doing”

 

“I loved the tutorial videos, watching them before I did the exercise really helped me to make sure I was doing them right, when you are shown in clinic forget what you are shown”
“It’s easy and straightforward to use, I am only coming into technology and only do basic stuff, but VERTIGENIUS was very handy to use”
