- Do flashing lights affect any of your patients? I think flashing lights in general are a bad idea, but I wasn't sure if you could provide a medical insight in this matter.
- While we wouldn't design for our device to have flashing lights, if they turn on then off there is a potential for it to seem like flashing. Flashing lights can be distracting. Also -I am not sure I have any patients that flashing lights induce a migraine or seizure, but probably better not to find out.
- Do you have patients who have both limited visual and limited hea or the other? This was a question we thought of when we were trying to explain why we wanted visual and audio feedback.
- I don't know of any with both. BUt having both auditory and visual is not for patients who are lacking one of these senses - it is because some patients respond better to one or the other PLUS it is a better way to promote neuroplasticity by utilizing multiple systems. SO having both is critical.
- If there was sound, would we need to provide headphone? This was a question Dr. DeBartolo asked, but I just wanted to double check. I think in previous conversations you said that the audio feedback was also helpful for your Physical Therapists.
- It would be better if we could hear what they hear.
- Along that same lines do you have a patient we could show different sizes lights and brightnesses to so we can to different configurations?
- I could always find a patient. NOt a problem.
- Then one more thing from Monday's meeting virtually- We discussed numerous times can you describe how therapy is done where you like the ability to have the PT puts the patient in the position. I know in the meeting we went back and forth on that in the meeting. We wanted to make sure this was still a need you want, because we don't want to miss it in our needs we have documented.Sorry but I don't understand what you are asking in blue above.
Can someone help reword that question?
