Cambridge Brain Sciences (CBS) uses the latest technology and scientific data to get better insights from modernized versions of classic tasks – they only take a few minutes each. CBS has developed endless test sets, so there is negligible “test learning” risk for a test-retest situation. And, important in our new virtual world, the link for the testing can be emailed to our clients, where they are provided step by step instructions and even tutorials allowing them to perform the tests without therapy staff being present in their home environment. OTs can use some or all of these cognitive screens to not only assess cognitive difficulties but to also monitor progress of treatment which is helpful to illustrate when requesting more funding for occupational therapy services.
Based on literature and resources from Parkwood Hospital’s concussion program, this program is tailored to persons experiencing interruption of daily function due to post-concussion related symptoms. It facilitates a 10 week structured approach to managing energy aimed at preventing aggravated symptomology, which then allows the brain to heal, and function levels to increase. The program tracks activity and symptoms to determine when the level of activity can be increased safely while allowing the brain to heal.
