Abstract:

War-fighters in forward combat settings are frequently exposed to concussive events (e.g., explosions, accidents, and falls), but resources for diagnosing mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) in these settings are limited. As such, soldiers with impaired cognitive states are often sent into combat situations, exposing them to unnecessary risk and increasing the likelihood of long-term health consequences. TIAX seeks to develop a system for detecting mTBI by measuring EEG signals associated with a visual stimulus. Characteristics of these visual-evoked potentials, according to our proprietary technologies and algorithms, will be used to generate an mTBI metric, providing medical personnel with a standardized, physiology-based means of diagnosing mTBI. The envisioned device will be portable, durable, and easy to use, making it suitable for use in Level II+ medical-treatment facilities, thus filling a critical gap in military capabilities.
