At the Convention for Child Development in Jerusalem, Dr. Netanel Tzelnik, Head of Neurologic & Child Development Center for “Clalit Health Services” (the largest Health Service provider in Israel) presented the results of a pilot test of Timocco.
Dr. Natanel Tzelnik and his team tested a total of more than 65 children; aged 3-7 years old, who suffer from ADHA (30), CP (24) and other syndromes.
ADHD: 27 of the 30 children tested (90%) showed immediate response. Their concentration improved while completing structured tasks for over 40 consecutive minutes (sitting at a table without too many distractions). The response was consistent in 10 sessions or more.
CP: 19 of the 24 children tested (79%) exercised their hemiplegic arm more than before, and in contrast to other methods of treatment, their experience was a positive one – something which encouraged them to keep using the weaker arm.
Just how frequently this treatment needs to be repeated in order to maintain the child’s progress is uncertain.
The pilot displays the efficiency of the software which can treat children with multiple developmental difficulties.
Following the success of the pilot, we are planning a large scale research program in order to test the system more thoroughly.
