KEEPING AN EYE ON BRAIN INJURED PATIENTS
Improved outcomes for brain injured patients
Pupil assessment is a fundamental and crucial part of the neurological examination. It is a direct indication to brain stem condition, irregular pupillary response in brain injury cases is an indication that may require immediate clinical intervention.
In spite of its clinical importance, pupillary examination is still conducted manually with a conventional light source.
The Need is for an automatic pupil reflex monitoring; assessing neurological status of brain injured patients.
Is an automatic monitoring system of the pupillary light reflex through closed eyes. Using an optical system for image acquisition and AI for image and data analysis.
