In the latest volume of the Journal of the Association of Neurophysiological Scientists (JANS), there is a paper that suggests a bright future for the Lifelines Photic lamp. The paper in question is the Unimed Prize Winner of 2016 and is an undergraduate BSc dissertation written by Bryony Carr, at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, UK.
In conclusion the paper states, “The study indicates positive outcome in the Lifelines lamp’s future use in the diagnostic detection of photosensitivity.” Carr,B.(2016) Clinical application of a new strobe lamp in identifying photosensitivity in patients referred to in the Birmingham children’s hospital for EEG testing. Journal of the Association of neurophysiological Scientists. 9(2): 74-80.
The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) publishes guidelines for the standardization of the IPS procedure, including the importance of the use of an optimum photic lamp. The Lifelines Photic meets all these requirements.
