The use of a Xenon discharge stroboscope to elicit VERs in a neonatal intensive care unit has several disadvantages. To overcome these a photostimulator has been developed which consists of an array of 25 red light emitting diodes (LEDs). The LEDs are driven by pulses of fixed length and current and the output intensity is controlled by the pulse repetition rate. Such a photostimulator is compact and can be hand-held inside a cot or incubator. Using this method VERs have been recorded in healthy full-term and pre-term infants which are comparable in wave form and latency to those elicited by a stroboscope.
