A Revolutionary Approach to Traumatic Brain Injury

12th November 2012

Thorneycroft Solicitors is excited to be the first Brain Injury specialist to be offering its clients the use of a Vicon Revue as part of their rehabilitation process post-injury.  The Revue is a revolutionary new memory aid that can radically improve a person’s ability to remember events and experiences following a traumatic brain injury – and can vastly improve an area of a person’s life that can be left devastated.

The device – developed by Microsoft as the SenseCam – is an intelligent camera worn a round the neck and works by taking photos every 20 seconds or so, which are then reviewed a couple of times a day for a couple of weeks, resulting in a phenomenal improvement in recall of autobiographical events. Users of the Revue report a hugely positive experience, with not just an improvement in memory but also a reduction in anxiety and the ability to be more socially relaxed.
