Oftentimes a concussion is detected much later than the accident that brought it about, which can result in some tragic cases -- but the SyncThink Eye-Sync program hopes to lessen those significantly. It is a device that uses virtual reality to help diagnose its symptoms in less than a minute after the accident.

Taking the form of a head-mounted eye-tracking system, the SyncThink Eye-Sync program "is meant to record, view, and analyze patients' eye movement quickly and accurately, thanks to integrated virtual reality software," writes Fast Company. Ideal for sports, Scott Anderson, director of athletic training for Stanford University Sports Medicine, says, "In my opinion, the Eye-Sync device has significant implications for sideline evaluation, and I can see in the future how this can be the diagnostic gold standard for sports-related concussions with every pro, college, and high school team having one on the field."
