Cognivue (Cognitive Screening)

Cognivue (Cognitive Screening)

The link between hearing loss and dementia has been well-documented. Studies suggest that as many as 80% of people with hearing loss will show signs of cognitive decline throughout their lives. But those stats don't tell the whole story. Hearing loss can be a symptom of cognitive decline, but it can also cause it.

Evidence suggests that hearing loss can be linked to an increased risk for dementia, including Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. That's why we're offering a new tool for our patients in the fight against dementia: Cognivue Cognitive Screenings. 

How does Cognivue work?

As the first FDA-approved computerized cognitive function test in the world. Cognivue was created to objectively, quantitatively, and consistently detect abnormalities in cognitive function that may indicate early dementia or Alzheimer's disease. 

The five-minute self-administered computerized assessment can assess these areas of cognitive performance:

  • Memory: Your ability to remember and recall knowledge when it is needed.
  • Visuospatial: Your ability to acquire and analyze visual information about yourself and your surroundings.
  • Executive function: The ability to focus and solve issues.
  • Reaction time: Your ability to physically react to situations.
  • Processing speed: How much time it takes to complete a cognitive activity.

Cognivue generates a report with a clinical risk score for cognitive health as soon as the test is completed. We use this to create a baseline cognitive score that can be tracked as time goes on.

How can we use Cognivue test results to treat your hearing loss better?

A drop in memory scores and other performance areas shown by the Cognivue cognitive test could explain why someone has more difficulties in a background noise situation than their hearing test results show. This helps us provide a better, more granular treatment program for sound processing challenges.
