Application

Different neurological pathways can often be ascertained through the pupillary behavior. For example, early detection of neurological deterioration for traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke and patients after brain surgeries. Currently, manual pupillary assessment protocols use penlight to evaluate pupil reactivity and a ruler to measure pupil size. In this settings, intermittent evaluation of pupils by the ICU personnel is considered standard

Technology

The proposed solution is composed of light source, detector and monitoring unit and will replace the traditional, manual, pupil examination with open eyes into continuous and easy to use monitoring with closed eyelids.

Our Innovation

  • Real time, continuous monitoring and detection of pupillary changes
  • Automatic and personnel free
  • Monitoring through closed eyelids
  • Accurate and precise
