Neurobit Technologies has developed wireless smart glasses that can record nystagmus waveforms and analyze related imaging data to make early prediction and prevention of strokes and other brain diseases, according to Jim Huang, co-founder and chief design officer (CDO) of the Taiwan-based startup.
Huang said that his firm's smart glasses can collect nine kinds of nystagmus imaging data involving horizontal visual tracking, vertical visual tracking, gazing, and saccade, among others. The data can be further analyzed with AI to provide doctors with clear nystagmus records of their patients.
The smart glasses carry pre-hospital recording, in-hospital diagnostic classification, and post-discharge result tracking functions, Huang stressed, adding that AI-based analysis of the comprehensive data collected from patients can serve as valuable references for doctors in making diagnostic judgments and issuing long-term prescriptions.
Huang continued that it will take 30 minutes to conduct 10 measurements of eye movements of a patient with the firm's smart glasses, to record the entire nystagmus processes of the patient.
He stressed Neurobit's smart glasses are light, slim and comfortable to wear, and boast a battery life of up to one hour, longer than any other wireless glasses.
Neurobit has contracted a third-party manufacturer to produce the smart glasses, Huang disclosed, adding that 3D printing has done a lot in helping the company develop innovative technology applications.
