Oculogica, a provider of concussion diagnostics, announces the launch of the new EyeBOX device following FDA clearance earlier this year.
The latest EyeBOX is lightweight, battery-operated, and small enough to fit in a backpack, making it easy to use in both clinical and sports settings.
Using a proprietary algorithm, the EyeBOX test takes less than 4 minutes. The test is non-invasive, does not rely on the patient’s literacy level, and can be used in both pediatrics and adults, for injuries due to any type of activity.
“With increasing rates of concussion, particularly in adolescents, the need for an objective diagnostic that isn’t dependent on patient-reported symptoms is critical to ensuring proper treatment and management to prevent further injury,” says Christina Master, MD, FAAP, CAQSM, FACSM, pediatrician and sports medicine specialist in brain injury at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). “Earlier identification of these abnormalities allows clinicians to improve diagnosis capabilities and individualize recommendations for activity as well as return to work or school.”
In collaboration with clinicians and researchers at leading US institutions, the EyeBOX device has been clinically validated in multi-center studies and has been included in numerous peer-reviewed medical journals.
“Our EyeBOX device offers a leap forward in concussion diagnosis. We are particularly excited to be launching this during Brain Injury Awareness Month,” says Rosina Samadani, PhD, CEO of Oculogica. “The lightweight form factor and battery operation allow it to be easily transported. Concussions happen everywhere and our latest device was designed with that in mind.”
