Concussion is a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Effects are usually temporary but can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination.1
Current scientific methods to quickly assess for a potential concussion include the King-Devick Test (K-D Test) of rapid number naming which requires eye movements as well as attention, language, concentration and other areas whose functions correlate with suboptimal brain function.2 Eye tracking technology combined with the K-D Test brings more quantitative tools to brain injury management.3 Utilizing EyeTechDS Inc. technology, the King-Devick Eye Tracking System’s real-time automated data measurement and visualizations of eye movements provides a detailed assessment of oculomotor function during performance of the King-Devick Test allowing for quantification of injury severity and recovery progression.4

EyeTech Digital Systems, Inc has partnered with Quantum Rehab to bring eye controlled wheel chairs to individuals who are unable to use hand controls. A live demo will be on display at the Tech West, Sands Halls A-D at EyeTech's booth# 43372 during the CES 2017 expo.
EyeTech's eye tracking technology mounts directly to a tablet PC and allows the user to control the entire computer using eye movements. The system then mounts to the wheelchair. An eye control driving app gives the user the ability to drive hands-free. The driving controls are overlaid on the scene camera video giving the functionality of a heads up display. Simply looking at the driving controls activates them to control the basic directions and movements of the chair.
