BRAIN HEALTH - Cortical Metrics - Evolution
Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) are the Health Issue of our Time
Cortical Metrics LLC was founded by Prof. Mark Tommerdahl and Prof. Bob Dennis in 2007 as a spin-out of the UNC School of Medicine. The technology is based on somatosensory testing, using the ability of the cortex to filter, amplify, and interpret sensations of touch on the somatosensory cortex. Unlike massive medical imaging installations that require long periods of time to generate images at great cost, which must be interpreted by specialized experts, Cortical Metrics technology is simple to use, portable, inexpensive, and fast. A quick result is available within 4 to 5 minutes, and a comprehensive battery of tests can be completed in under 20 minutes. With detection accuracy in many cases well above 90%, Cortical Metrics technology has emerged as the accepted standard for the highly sensitive, portable, inexpensive, simple-to-use and reliable detection of brain injury.
