The future of healthcare might be held in the palm of your hand, with Brightlamp, a concussion-detecting app. The app uses the smartphone's camera and flash to shine a light in the user's eye, dilating the pupil. This image is then captured through your camera, stored, and sent to the cloud where it is able to be analyzed for signs of a concussion.
Through the pupil, our brain activity is on display, and the makers behind Brightlamp want to use the right sensors to ensure that the brain activity can be read when we need it the most. Through the development of mobile medicine, researchers are making the most out of smart phones, transforming them into medical devices. This application can read brain activity and detect concussions with a 98% accuracy, creating a world that's medically mobile.
