In this fascinating interview, President David Cantor introduced Vycor and its notable ownership of over 55 patents — 38 granted and 17 pending.

Mr. Cantor went into its anchor products, ViewSite™ Brain Access System (“VBAS”), a suite of clear cylindrical disposable devices which provide neurosurgeons with a stable, minimally invasive working channel to access targeted sites within the brain, such as tumors. To date, the Company estimates more than 5,000 surgeries have been performed utilizing VBAS. A video explaining the attributes of Vycor Medical’s VBAS can be seen athttp://player.vimeo.com/video/39766887.

Cantor said, “Our device not only saves lives, but it also saves money through reduced surgeon time. We estimate that between operating time and early patient discharge those savings amount to up to $6,000 per procedure.” He went on to say that, “According to the American Association of Neurosurgeons, there are about 200,000 procedures annually that our device would be applicable for, with about another 130,000 identified through product extensions. On a worldwide basis, that would equate to a market potential for the device of about $700 million.” VBAS has regulatory approval in the United States, Europe, China, Japan, Korea and Canada and currently the Company is turning its attention to other large markets such as Russia and India.

Cantor also discussed Vycor’s wholly-owned NovaVision subsidiary, which is the worldwide leader in the field of vision rehabilitation for vision loss resulting from neurological damage and the largest such provider by far in the U.S., Europe, and other global markets. NovaVision’s VRT™ is the only medical device aimed at the restoration of vision for neurologically induced vision loss which has FDA 510 (K) clearance to be marketed in the U.S. VRT™ has been clinically proven to restore vision.

Regarding VRT™, Cantor stated, “The number of potential patients is truly amazing. A staggering 30% of stroke patients suffer from some form of vision disability. In the US, there are 8 million people who have suffered a stroke, and every year there is another 700,000 stroke victims, which puts our addressable market in the U.S. alone above $1 billion, and a worldwide target of $8 billion.” A video explaining the attributes of Vycor’s NovaVision can be seen at: http://player.vimeo.com/video/39765566

Cantor closed the interview but giving a brief overview of their recently launched productNeuroEyeCoach™, a new Internet-based “direct to the patient” saccadic eye training program that is complementary to VRT™. NeuroEyeCoach™ has been specifically developed with world-renowned professors in the field to increase the efficiency of eye movement and train the patient to make the most of their remaining vision.

Vycor’s NovaVision Unit Announces the Commercial Release of NeuroEyeCoach™ — A Novel Saccadic Eye Training Therapy

1800publicrelations.com-1-800-public-relations-pr-nyc-agency copy

NeuroEyeCoach™ Vision Therapy Is Available Direct to Patients via the Internet

BOCA RATON, FL–(Jan 23, 2014) – Vycor Medical, Inc. (“Vycor”) (OTCBB:VYCO), a medical device company with a suite of FDA cleared products, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, NovaVision has launched the first commercial release of its new saccadic eye training therapy which will be marketed in the U.S. as NeuroEyeCoach™. The therapy is now available through the web sitewww.NeuroEyeCoach.com.

To carry out normal daily tasks, such as finding an object at home or on a supermarket shelf, one needs to make effective eye movements. Unfortunately, normal eye movements are also affected after brain injury making it difficult to integrate visual information and adding to the problems of blindness. Training is needed for patients to learn to make effective use of their eye movement again. NeuroEyeCoach™ has been specifically developed with world-renowned professors in the field to increase the efficiency of eye movement and train the patient to make the most of their remaining vision.

NeuroEyeCoach™ addresses an enormous worldwide market that currently is largely not addressed. It is estimated that in the U.S. alone, there are over 8 million Americans who have suffered a stroke and there are more than 700,000 new stroke cases occurring annually. About 30% of patients with acquired brain injury suffer from visual disorders with stroke being the most frequent cause.

NeuroEyeCoach™ is an innovative program which evolved from Professor Zihl’s (a NovaVision Scientific Advisor) extensive research and pioneering of a computer-based saccadic treatment approach which has been the subject of numerous studies. NeuroEyeCoach™ distills all of Professor Zihl’s clinical findings into one comprehensive therapeutic product for improving a patient’s ability to scan their environment more efficiently.

NeuroEyeCoach™ is the first commercially available saccadic eye training therapy offered via the Internet direct to patients at home. The program is designed to:

  • Provide meaningful improvement in visual search performance resulting in improvements in navigation skills and object finding.
  • Increase the efficiency of a patient’s eye movement and re-train the patient’s ability to make most of their remaining vision
  • Be carried out in comfort at home on patient’s computer; the program is intuitive and user friendly and has been designed not to be overly taxing and can be completed in 2-4 weeks
  • Have a real positive impact on activities of daily living.

At www.NeuroEyeCoach.com, information can be found on the therapy and patients can register and download the program. The therapy is delivered over the Internet, allowing for the patient to complete the training in the comfort of their home. NeuroEyeCoach™ can also be provided as a clinic-based multi-user device. The device will enable healthcare professionals to provide the therapy to patients under supervision. Alternatively, clinics can use the device to enable patients to try out the therapy while in the clinic. Patients can then be referred to NovaVision for completion of the NeuroEyeCoach™ therapy at home.

Commenting on the announcement, David Cantor, President of Vycor, stated, “We believe today’s launch of NeuroEyeCoach™ is a game changer for Vycor. The therapy addresses a very substantial and under-served market. NeuroEyeCoach™ has been designed and developed to meaningfully improve a patient’s ability to scan their environment, resulting in a very positive impact on their ability to deal with every day living. We believe there are literally millions of people worldwide who could benefit from this therapy.”

Vycor’s wholly-owned NovaVision subsidiary is the worldwide leader in the field of neurologically-induced vision loss. In addition to NeuroEyeCoach™, NovaVision markets a non-invasive, computer-based light stimulation therapy called Vision Restoration Therapy (VRT™), which is the only medical device aimed at the restoration of vision for neurologically induced vision loss which has FDA 510 (K) clearance to be marketed in the U.S.

The NeuroEyeCoach™ therapy is highly complementary to VRT™. The two therapies address different visual disabilities each of which results from neurological damage-induced vision loss — a loss of visual field as well as difficulty with eye movement, affecting the ability to integrate visual information. VRT provides partial restoration of the patient’s lost visual field. NeuroEyeCoach™ has been specifically developed to increase the efficiency of eye movement and re-train the patients’ ability to integrate visual information between the left and right hand side.

The Company is in parallel actively working on re-engineering its VRT to also enable it for direct to the patient Internet delivery and to streamline a number of business processes related to the delivery and servicing of patients, although the therapy itself will remain unchanged. Once completed, NovaVision plans to offer both NeuroEyeCoach™ and VRT alongside each other in one therapy suite creating the most robust, affordable, Internet-based visual therapy solution targeted at neurologically induced vision loss.

NeuroEyeCoach™ is a result of collaboration between Vycor management, its Chief Scientific Officer Prof. Arash Sahraie, (Chair in Vision Sciences, College of Life Sciences and Medicine at the University of Aberdeen) and Josef Zihl and the rest of its world class NovaVision Scientific Advisory Board.
