Product Details

The Wessex Head Injury Matrix (WHIM) accurately assesses:

  • clients in and emerging from coma
  • clients in vegetative and minimally conscious states

With the WHIM clients can be assessed and goals for rehabilitation set from the outset of coma. The WHIM bridges the gap between tests available for the very acute stages after head injury and those helpful in later stages of recovery.

Improvements from the initial state of coma may be gradual and, unless accurate assessment takes place, small gains may be missed or misinterpreted. The WHIM will pick up minute indices demonstrating recovery, providing objective evidence for realistic prediction. It is easy and quick to administer by any qualified member of a multidisciplinary team.
