Reflexion Interactive out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania is showing off a novel touch-based concussion assessment system. It consists of a series of panels with LEDs that light up for the person using it to touch. The system lights up patterns that have to be reached out for and touched. Because it is so wide, it often requires the user to physically move to reach different spots on the system. It measures accurately the user touches the targets, as well as how fast.
The current device weighs less than 20 pounds (9 Kg) when broken down and can be stuffed inside a carrying bag.
It’s not yet clinically verified, but a six-month initial study will soon be conducted at the Pennsylvania State University Center for Sport Concussion Research.
The system was originally developed by three students from Lancaster Catholic High School and is now patent pending.
