Why have a concussion tracking scan?
By doing a baseline when you are fit and healthy you have a sound foundation to compare against in the unfortunate situation of getting a head knock or injury.
The valid baseline can be confidently compared to follow up scans by a professional practitoner to ensure safe and timely return to work or play and significant reduction in risk.

Frequently asked questions
How it works and what the numbers mean
When a brain injury occurs it can compromise a person’s ability to track a moving object with their eyes.
This is why medical professionals have traditionally waved a finger in front of someone’s eyes as a way to assess their brain function. Now eye tracking technologies such as EyeGuide can do the same test in a more modern, objective way to better understand the brain.
Eye tracking is not a diagnostic tool so it is still important to see a medical professional for a full assessment using the Sports Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT) or equivalent in order to diagnose a concussion and make return to play decisions.
Each 10 second test instantly produces a score and 9 scale ranking from “Very Superior” to “Extremely Poor”. This allows an objective baseline to be set and then changes to the score monitored over time or after a specific incident.
Below is a sample profile of a player who had an incident on the sports field and how EyeGuide was used to gather data during their recovery.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging brain cells.
Medical providers may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, the effects of a concussion can be serious.
