The FDA recently approved the "EyeBox," an eye-tracking test device to help diagnose concussions. The company that makes the device, Oculogica, Inc., touts that this technology brings in a new era for diagnosing concussion and managing patients. It is marketed to be the first objective diagnostic test for concussion. In referenced studies the company claims that the EyeBox had high sensitivity to the presence of concussion and that a negative EyeBox result was consistent with lack of concussion. We expect to hear more about this given that allegations of traumatic brain injury are common in the workers’ compensation arena. The Oculogica websitehttp://www.oculogica.com/ emphasizes that the results of the test “cannot be influenced or ‘gamed’ by the patient.
