Neuroscience company Cognivue announced that it has recruited 16 national leaders for its new Audiology Advisory Committee. Cognivue is a company specializing in cognitive assessment technologies, data collection, and training programs within healthcare settings across North America. The advisory committee members will share their expertise with clinical, academic, and research protocols as it relates to information processing across audition, cognition, and psychology. The Cognivue Audiology Advisory Committee held its first meeting June 23.

Cognivue President and CEO Tom O’Neill said, “Hearing loss is the number one modifiable risk factor for dementia. The nationally recognized thought leaders on our Audiology Advisory Committee are helping us take that message to hearing care professionals across the country to share how cognitive assessments can provide early detection and referral for treatment of non-normative results. I am grateful to every one of these professionals for sharing their expertise, vast knowledge, and experience.”

Audiology veteran and Cognivue Vice President of Clinical Sciences Douglas L Beck, AuD, CCC-A, F-AAA said, “I had the extraordinary honor of assembling the Cognivue Audiology Advisory Committee. Although I have previously worked with many of the committee members across multiple publications and initiatives, others are people I have studied, admired, referred to, and quoted. The Cognivue Audiology Advisory Committee is a collaborative ‘think tank’ with vast clinical, academic, and research skills dedicated to addressing the holistic needs of patients regarding hearing, listening, and communication, based on a patient-centered approach.”

The Cognivue Thrive device provides a five-minute, self-administered computerized screening of cognitive function.  The screening is simple to implement in any clinical environment and requires minimal staff involvement. The device folds up like a laptop and weighs less than eight pounds for portability to various locations inside and outside of the clinic.
