We are excited to introduce Cognivue as a part of your complete hearing healthcare assessment! FDA cleared since 2015, it provides your audiologist with a report on how to best treat you if you have a hearing loss. We assess 5 different parameters of processing through a quick, self-administered screening.
Hearing loss can actually affect other parts of the brain such as memory, speech and language. With this screening, we are trying to be proactive in managing hearing loss by possibly slowing the progression rather than catching it when it’s too late.
RISK FACTORS FOR COGNITIVE DECLINE:
- Hearing loss
- Unhealthy lifestyle
- Neurological issues
- Cardiovascular issues
- Sleep, hormones, vision, and hearing impairment
According to an article by author Martha Wilcox, “Hearing loss is associated with higher rates of depression, dementia and falls that require hospitalization. Even mild hearing loss doubles the risk of dementia, moderate loss triples the risk and those with severe loss are 5 times more likely to develop dementia.”
Contrary to other cognitive screenings, Cognivue eliminates any bias and is personalized to your unique motor and visual skills. Using adaptive psychophysics, it personalizes the report to your unique motor and visual abilities. If you request, we can send your results to your PCP for review.
Not worried you have a cognitive decline, but you might in the future? Get a baseline score now that we can measure over time!
