NeuroTrax, a Houston-based company in the brain wellness industry, announced the global availability of BrainCare, a cognitive assessment and report solution to aid a clinician in advancing the brain wellness of stroke survivors and traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients. A NeuroTrax news release notes that BrainCare is based on peer-reviewed scientific studies indicating that cognitive exercises performed following a stroke or TBI can improve brain wellness. BrainCare aims to standardize brain wellness assessment and tracking that measures progress toward regaining lost function.

According to the NeuroTrax news release, the design of BrainCare provides structured patient assessment and reporting that also provides the healthcare professional with quality of care metrics related to brain exercises. The testing solution is designed to be user friendly and includes a standardized set of computerized tests to identify cognitive and psychosocial factors. The tests cover the following areas of memory and thinking in addition to mood and nervousness: memory, executive function, attention, verbal function, problem solving, and visual spatial.

The NeuroTrax news release indicates that the test results are then generated in easy-to-read graphical reports for the patient and clinician. BrainCare also provides evidence-based patient activity recommendations that aid healthcare professionals in aligning test results with the latest scientific research on brain wellness and fitness.

Robert Pepper, CEO of NeuroTrax, says, “Since no two brain injuries are the same, it’s important that patients have access to personalized cognitive assessments and fitness activities to advance their brain wellness. Our vision for BrainCare is to establish a standardized process in assessing and supporting brain wellness.”

Pepper adds, “BrainCare is designed to support clinician workflow with a patient-centric solution to help manage and monitor patient brain fitness.”
