EyeQ system may help those with head injuries

On Behalf of | Jan 12, 2018 | Brain Injury |

West Virginia residents of course use their eyes to see the world around them. However, vision may also be analyzed to see if people have a number of physical or mental conditions. A product called EyeQ from RightEye may be able to diagnose and help treat those who may experience autism symptoms or who may have a concussion. This is done through a variety of tests such as Sports Vision that are conducted using eye tracking technology.

The EyeQ system has been used in schools and clinics, and Major League Baseball also makes use of the technology. In addition to helping athletes determine if they have a concussion, this product may help to determine why children may have trouble reading. For example, it may be possible to determine if a child’s issues are because of poor vision or because of other learning or physical disabilities.

A brain injury could have both short and long-term impacts on a person’s life. For instance, it may not be possible to return to work, school or social activities. Those who experience a head injury may also see changes in their mood or personality. This may make it difficult for injured victims to live the type of life as before the accident occurred. Those who are injured because of another person’s negligence may be entitled to compensation.

Compensation may help to pay for medicine or other treatment needed to help an injured person recover from a head injury. It may also help to recover lost wages caused by the negligence of another party, such as a motorist who was distracted by a cellphone or driving under the influence of alcohol.
