How does eye tracking assess brain health?
When a brain injury occurs it can compromise a person’s ability to track a moving object with their eyes.
This is why medical professionals have traditionally waved a finger in front of someone’s eyes as a way to assess their brain function. Now eye tracking technologies such as EyeGuide can do the same test in a more modern, objective way to better understand the brain.
Eye tracking is not a diagnostic tool so it is still important to see a medical professional for a full assessment using the Sports Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT) or equivalent in order to diagnose a concussion and make return to play decisions.
What are the results?
Each 10 second test instantly produces a score and 9 scale ranking from “Very Superior” to “Extremely Poor”. This allows an objective baseline to be set and then changes to the score monitored over time or after a specific incident. Below is a sample profile of a player who had an incident on the sports field and how EyeGuide was used to gather data during their recovery.
