The EyeGuide Focus is a contraption that is designed to detect concussions in athletes, enabling coaches and physios to pull them off the field of play in order to avoid further damage.

Athletes simply have to put on an eye-tracking headset and follow a moving white dot on the screen with their eyes. The headset records eye movements, and detects any lapses in performance that could be a result of a neurological problem.

Concussions are a major problem at all levels of sport, from the elite leagues right down to the school level. The EyeGuide Focus will help ensure that concussions are detected and treated early, which will mean athletes' health will be better taken care of in both the short and long term.
