A new portable immersive device can detect mild traumatic brain injury, known as concussion, that takes place in sports every hour of every day.
Researchers and engineers from Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a prototype medical device that can screen and assess the effects of concussions in near real-time. The portable device, known as iDETECT, can be used on the sidelines of sporting events. It consists of a headset and handheld device that rapidly assesses the player's symptoms, including cognitive function, balance, and eye movements.
