Neuro Kinetics, Inc. Key Developments

Neuro Kinetics, Inc. Contracts with Allegheny General Hospital to Collaborate on the Analysis of Clinical Trials Underway At Two Military Medical Facilities

Neuro Kinetics, Inc. (NKI) has contracted with Allegheny General Hospital (AGH) to collaborate on the analysis of clinical trials underway at two military medical facilities. The analysis, partially funded through a contract by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), is gauging NKI's I-Portal eye movement-tracking technology for the diagnosis and monitoring of mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI), also known as concussions. The research builds on the company's existing I-Portal diagnostic platform, currently utilized in its equipment used clinically for detection of vestibular and equilibrium issues. The I-Portal technology measures the eye's response and reflexes to a variety of stimuli. NKI seeks to demonstrate that by using I-Portal's sophisticated yet quick and noninvasive testing of abnormal eye movements, physicians will be provided with objective data to aid in the detection of concussive symptoms. The military clinical trials are at Naval Hospital San Diego (California) and Madigan Army Medical Center (Washington State). NKI and AGH previously collaborated on a research project that tested high school athletes in Western Pennsylvania. Data collected in the previous NKI/AGH study is being included in the new analysis, as will results from existing concussion diagnostic protocols such as ImPACT and the Sports Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT). The ultimate goal of the DoD-funded work is to accelerate validation and commercialization of NKI's oculomotor (eye movement) tests for brain injuries. NKI expects to request clearance from the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for a new testing protocol for the diagnosis of concussions on the battlefield, at sporting events and in workplaces. (NKI's devices have FDA clearance for the clinical testing of vestibular and equilibrium disorders.) Schroeder added that while much research and regulatory review remains to be completed before the company can market a new diagnostic tool for brain injuries, the early research is promising.

Neuro Kinetics Announces Executive Appointments

Neuro Kinetics Inc. announced that Michael Saporito has been appointed as its chief financial officer. The company also said that Robert Kampmeinert has been elected to its board of directors. Saporito's most recent post was as vice president at the LifeVest division of Zoll Medical. He helped lead the turnaround of LifeVest and its subsequent acquisition by Zoll. Robert Kampmeinert retired in 2010 as chairman of Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, a major investment and investment banking firm headquartered in Philadelphia.

Neuro Kinetics, Inc. Releases New Version of Vest(TM) Control & Analysis Software

Neuro Kinetics, Inc. will showcase the latest version of its VEST(TM) control and analysis software at the American Academy of Audiology's AudiologyNOW! 2013 conference next week in Anaheim, California. The VEST software is the platform that controls NKI's I-Portal(R) oculomotor technology used in conjunction with the company's various diagnostic devices. Audiologists, neuro-otologists, and neurologists and other specialists use the software to conduct patient tests for a range of vestibular and balance issues, and to generate test data, prepare reports and manage patient care. The new VEST version 7.x features a number of benefits, including enhanced 64-bit platform using single PC with Windows(R) 7 reduces foot print and provides increased performance and efficiency; upgraded report structure and selection matrix provides an intuitive and enhanced user interface to reduce report pages and streamline patient documentation; video saving and playback now added for all NOTC tests with enhanced video compression allowing 10x smaller files; improved performance of pupil detection and torsion algorithms with torsion now running at 100 hz.
