A team of scientists at the University of Geneva in Switzerland collaborated with Spanish innovators to develop a high-tech new diagnostic device that is designed to make it easier than ever to quickly and easily detect traumatic brain injuries such as concussions.

The device, dubbed TBIcheck, only needs to analyze a drop of blood from the patient, and can then reveal in a matter of minutes whether the person is displaying above-average levels of chemicals associated with brain injury.

What's more, the TBIcheck diagnostic device is also more than capable of conveying medical information to a smartphone app for easy sharing with medical professionals.

Easy to deploy and fast to offer results, TBIcheck is a fine example of handheld gadgetry and smartphone technology joining forces to potentially save lives.
