New non-invasive equipment tests for concussions

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently cleared a new medical device called the EyeBox for detecting concussions. The relatively modest-sized piece of equipment (as opposed to a CT scan) designed by a neurosurgeon tracks the movements of the eye to detect signs of concussion. This clearance is based on years of testing and can be used on patients ages 5 to 67 years old.

The machine works by tracking a patient's eye movements as it watches a 4-minute video that bounces around a large screen. It has already been determined that different deviations in eye movement indicate different injuries. The EyeBox, however, is different from other equipment because it does not need a previous baseline reading. Its only use at this point is for determining a concussion, but the analysis of eye movement will help better define other injuries through their identifying eye tracking deviation.

Available at hospitals

The device is already available at certain hospital test sites around the United States. It will soon be implemented by other medical centers, and then it claims that it will be used further down the line on the sidelines of football games and other circumstances involving general consumers.

If all goes as planned, the device will change how to diagnose a brain injury. This means that if someone is more accurately diagnosed as injured, these readings will help doctors treat patients. It is worth noting that it also will aid personal injury attorneys in building stronger cases for injured clients.
