In the US, approximately 20% of concussion are sports-related. Keeping athletes safe requires accurate sideline diagnosis, especially in light of research showing that every minute spent playing post-concussion lengthens recovery times.
With EyeBOX, TBI diagnosis takes less than four minutes and provides accurate, real-time diagnosis, enabling healthcare providers, parents, coaches, and athletes to make informed decisions on treatments and decisions about returning to play.
Currently available sideline-based eye-tracking technologies depend on expensive and time-consuming pre-season baseline testing, which teams must perform annually on all players. Even then, recent studies show that baseline testing is unreliable as players intent on playing even in the face of brain injury can intentionally perform poorly on baseline testing, increasing the possibility of passing tests administered after head trauma is experienced.
By evaluating actual brain function instead of proxies like reaction time and attention, which vary from player-to-player, Oculogica’s EyeBOX technology completely eliminates the need for baseline testing.
