Learn more about our technology and how it is used to support clinicians and patients everywhere.

Where Big Data Meets Brain Health

The EYE-SYNC technology platform functions as a robust, fully customizable data management system designed to be configured to the specific workflow of the clinician, in order to capture comprehensive patient data that supports an accurate diagnosis and targeted therapeutic interventions.

Patient Information

Capture patient demographics, history, medications and more using expansive reporting features to create a head health record.

Eye Tracking

Seven 60 second assessments provide rapid and accurate insight into patient disposition, supporting clinical decision making.

Neurocognitive

Utilize commonly used neurocognitive assessments to confirm additional deficits in need of a targeted treatment approach.

Standardized Questionnaires

Access standardized assessments gather supplemental details for various developmental conditions, mood disorders, and others that may complicate patient prognosis and impact recovery timelines.

Forms and Inventories

Document specific incidents and customize organizational forms in order to manage data from the time of injury through recovery.

Eye Tracking Capabilities

Assessment

Assessment Direction Duration
Smooth Pursuit Clockwise, counter clockwise <60 seconds
Saccade Horizontal and vertical <60 seconds
Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR)  Horizontal and vertical <60 seconds
Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex Cancellation (VORx)  Horizontal <60 seconds
Full Battery (all of the above) Clockwise, horizontal 2-5 minutes

The SyncThink platform offers an array of objective assessments, in a mobile environment, which can be used to detect visual impairments. Using a logical flow, a clinician can choose to complete tests particularly relevant to the patient history, or conduct battery of assessments consecutively in minutes. Results collected then can be used to support the clinicians decision making process as well as their diagnosis and treatment plan.

Therapy

Recovery Feature System Trained Duration
Smooth Pursuit Quadrant Slow predictive attention Variable, with increasing speeds
Saccade  High velocity eye movements with fixation Variable, with random fixation
Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR) Gaze stability during head motion Variable, metronome
Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex Cancellation (VORx) VOR suppression against VR gradient Variable, metronome

During the recovery phase, visual training may be recommended as a means of therapy. As the patient improves, the clinician can use objective information to measure progress and consider further progressions. By using the SyncThink platform, clinicians can choose to dial back or accelerate visual training as they monitor symptoms, the patient response to stress, and the overall effectiveness of their interventions.

Training

Performance Feature Training Paradigm Direction
Smooth Pursuit Real Time Feedback (color) Clockwise
Smooth Pursuit Real Time Feedback (color) Counter clockwise
Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR) Real Time Feedback (color) Horizontal
Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR) Real Time Feedback (color) Vertical
Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex Cancellation (VORx) Complex VR Gradients Variable

The performance applications on the SyncThink platform are designed to improve dynamic vision, a key characteristic of high level brain performance. By using real time feedback paradigms for training, the patient can receive instant feedback into how they are performing during the task. This is done by changing the color of the visual target as an indicator of high or low performance. 

Using these paradigms can prepare athletes, soldiers and patients to improve focus during tasks that require precise visual acuity and performance over time.

What people are saying: St. David’s Medical Center

“We are long time vestibular therapists and have been using EYE-SYNC for several months, and can tell our patients really enjoy the objective data they get both before and after their exercises. They love watching their numbers improve over time and easily stay engaged from session to session because of the feedback from EYE-SYNC. Also let’s be honest…our patients think using EYE-SYNC is fun and high tech, plus they like knowing they are using technology that professional athletes use!”

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

  • What is the EYE-SYNC technology?

    The EYE-SYNC technology is a Virtual Reality (VR) based digital health platform that can assess real time brain health, deliver therapy, and improve performance. It provides a battery of assessments that can be used to rapidly detect concussion and other cognitive impairments. Once these impairments are identified, trained clinicians can use various paradigms for monitoring improvement over time or to provide therapy to improve visual and vestibular function.

  • How has EYE-SYNC been validated?

    EYE-SYNC is the proprietary analysis metrics used to quantify and objectively determine a patient’s real time cognitive performance. Developed over a 15-year period of rigorous scientific research in collaboration with the US Department of Defense and the Brain Trauma Foundation, EYE-SYNC’s clinical utility has been extensively documented in dozens of publications. In 2016, the FDA cleared EYE-SYNC for viewing, recording, and analyzing eye movements in support of visual impairment identification. In 2019, the FDA selected EYE-SYNC as Breakthrough Device Designation for aid to concussion assessment. In 2021, the FDA cleared EYE-SYNC as an aid to concussion diagnosis.

  • What value does EYE-SYNC add to my practice or clinical business?

    EYE-SYNC has been shown to increase patient volume, improve the quality of clinical care, and increase revenue for both clinicians and financial decision makers. With established reimbursement, organizations can quickly capture ROI and drive growth. Contact us to learn more about how we can help develop and promote the use of EYE-SYNC in your clinic.

     

  • Can EYE-SYNC be used in combination with traditional Neurocognitive tests?

    Absolutely. The EYE-SYNC technology is a complimentary diagnostic and therapeutic tool that can be used in conjunction with most commonly used neurocognitive assessments available today.

  • How easy to use is the EYE-SYNC technology? Is it practical for use in my clinic?

    Each eye tracking assessment is less than 60 seconds in length, creating a mechanism for rapid screening and identification. This approach to rapid testing has been shown to improve both clinical workflow and patient throughput.

  • Is a baseline required?

    No. In certain situations, we recommend a baseline to better understand individual performance differences over time, however it is not necessary. Results can be definitely determined with a positive or negative indication of concussion, or compared against de-identified normative results directly from our clinical trial database.

  • How do I get the results? Can I export them?

    The results are generated instantaneously following the completion of each assessment. They are provided in a robust advanced report that can be customized to your preferences. Results can also be exported via PDF or secure data transfer to an EMR or other database through our API.
