Description (From Developer):

“There are 3.8 million sports-associated concussions in the USA per year. Concussions result from direct or indirect force to the head. Patients with concussion often present with symptoms such as headache, fatigue, irritability, sensitivity to light, memory and speech problems. 9 out of 10 patients with blunt traumatic brain injury also show visual disturbances, specifically oculomotor and fusion disturbances [1,2]. The degree of impaired eye movement control has been shown to correlate with the degree of concussion. Many of the available screening methods for concussion are either costly or do not adequately screen for oculomotor function.(…)

Talkingeyes & More GmbH in cooperation with the Technical Faculty of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (Department of Computer Science, Machine Learning and Data Analytics Lab (MaD Lab), FAU) developed a VR system that has the following features:

  • Determination of fusion ability in 9 gaze directions (=conjugate eye movements).
  • Measurement of the reaction time in ms when recognising the visual 3D stimulus.

The method is patented by Talkingeyes & More GmbH: Granted patent number 16185273.6: Method for acquisition of cerebral cognition time and device for acquisition of cerebral cognition time.”
