Device to measure eye movement wins UCD Engineering Innovation Sprint programme
A business idea for a device to measure eye movement as an indicator of brainstem activity has won the 2015 University College Dublin (UCD) Engineering Innovation Sprint programme.
Claiming to “significantly overcome” the limitations of the current measurement system, the indirect Brainstem Activity Monitor is a non-contact, non-invasive, fast and portable optical measurement device which combines optical engineering hardware and software algorithms.
The device provides a single number result similar to a pulse measurement.
The promoters of this early-stage business idea are Prof John Sheridan, professor of optical engineering, UCD Earth Institute and UCD School of Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering and Dr James Ryle who completed his PhD under the supervision of Prof Sheridan.
The UCD Engineering Innovation Sprint programme is a one-day initiative designed and delivered by UCD’s technology transfer and enterprise development teams at NovaUCD in collaboration with the UCD Earth Institute.
It aims to encourage the development of commercial outputs arising from engineering research taking place at UCD by engaging with researchers at an earlier stage in the commercialisation process.
