Cerora Inc.

The dawning of a new era in brain assessment

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Cerora Inc. has developed a concussion assessment platform that will collect and analyze many different types of inputs: EEG data, eye gaze measurements, and measures of cognition and voice analysis, to detect concussions. By doing so, the company thinks it will be able to provide a more comprehensive picture of brain injury than competitors whose technologies assess a single factor.

Sway Medical LLC

Sway Medical LLC hopes to bring an objective and inexpensive tool for the assessment of concussions to the playing field. Its Sway Balance system combines the hardware that is built into every iPhone with Sway’s proprietary software to assess players’ balance – a well-accepted measure for diagnosing concussion and measuring recovery from concussion – from the sidelines.

MC10 Inc.

MC10’s wearable Biostamp, an extremely thin sensing patch akin to an artificial tattoo, has myriad applications in consumer and medical device markets. The start-up’s first product, launched in collaboration with Reebok International, is the CheckLight for detecting potential concussions in athletes who participate in contact sports.

Oculogica Inc.

Because there is a strong correlation between eye movement and brain activity, tracking those movements to determine the extent of a brain injury would appear to be a “no-brainer,” but there are few companies developing such technologies. One is Oculogica Inc., whose EyeBox system is designed to have the ability to detect and quantify the extent of brain injury, regardless of whether that injury is structurally visible by conventional radiology.
