KEEPING AN EYE ON BRAIN INJURED PATIENTS
Bringing Pupillary Monitoring to 21st Century standard;
assisting the medical staff in improving outcomes for brain injured patients
Pupillary reflex assessment is a fundamental and crucial part of the neurological examination. It is a direct indication to brain stem condition, and irregular pupillary response in brain injury cases is an indication that requires immediate clinical attention.
Despite its clinical importance, pupillary examination has not changed in over 100 years, and it 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.
BrainWatch has developed an automatic monitoring system of the pupillary light reflex through closed eyes.
The system is constructed as a head unit and a bedside monitor, using computer vision and AI to continually monitor brain injured patients’ pupillary light reflex without opening their eyes.
The non-invasive system monitors this key indicator automatically, continually, and accurately, the data is analyzed, tracked, and communicated to healthcare professionals.
