Charles River’s Oculomotor, Vestibular, and Balance Research Solutions

Our ADVISOR system is currently being designed for the US military to facilitate in theater concussion screening. The underlying technology that drives ADVISOR is now available for commercial purchase for individuals and organizations for research only purposes via our beta user licensing program.

ADVISOR Researcher Kit

Our ADVISOR system combines a number of vestibular function screening tests to gather the data necessary to screen Soldiers for fitness to return to duty (RTD).

ADVISOR’s guidance takes numerous factors into account, such as the need to make decisions under stressful conditions or while multitasking in extreme environments.

Key ADVISOR Researcher Kit features include:

  • Supports a readily extensible range of oculomotor and balance-related stimulus-response tasks
  • Maximum portability offered via a smartphone application that doubles as the display within a low-cost HMD
  • Available for integration within most laboratory computing environments and networked control systems

ADVISOR Sway Referenced Platform


Concept rendering

ADVISOR Sway Referenced Platform (SRP) is our portable evaluation balance platform device that can be used with our without the ADVISOR head-mounted virtual-reality display to conduct balance-related research.

The ADVISOR SRP is designed for use with the AMTI AccuSway optimized dual force plate. The force plate dynamically measures balance and postural shifts, which can be used to drive the SRP to tilt and roll up to 10° in response.

Key ADVISOR SRP features include:

  • Portability and USB connectivity
  • 2-axis rotation - both tilt and roll
  • Multi-axis force sensing with the AMTI
  • Designed for the AMTI AccuSway Optimized force plate
  • Plug-and-play integration with the ADVISOR Researcher Kit
