BrainFx CEO & Co- founder Tracy Milner sits down with Globalive Media‘s Anthony Lacavera (interview supported by iGan Partners) to discuss BrainFx assessments and it’s applications with those facing brain disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. As Tracy discusses, most cognitive assessments help to diagnose but they do not speak to how these diagnoses impact a patient’s everyday life. BrainFx is able to look at this impact and can then inform care plans in order to help maximize the quality of life for patients.
Tracy elaborates on the core of BrainFx’s methods; understanding the impact of brain disorders through evaluating one’s brain function through the performance of everyday tasks. BrainFx is able to digitally engage with patients in an innovative way by capturing results through activities created to measure this performance. Both the BrainFx SCREEN (10-15 minute assessment) and the more comprehensive BrainFx 360 (90 minute assessment) look at function brain but the BrainFx 360 uses physical skills, sensory skills and medical history for a deeper report. Results can be stored in the BrainFx ‘Living Brain Bank’ so that patients and providers can create cohorts for normative comparisons across different criteria.
The Living Brain Bank, as Tracy explains, uses AI and machine learning in order to continuously improve the assessments, but is also key for research alongside other data banks available in the industry.
