Innovators of Advanced Pupillometer Technology
A Vision(ary) Company.
Brightlamp is a software company that specializes in frontier computer vision methods. We take these breakthrough methods and apply them to mobile solutions to assist in the advancement of healthcare. Our premier technology monitors your eye’s reaction to light so medical professionals can get more accurate and consistent neurological information with just the touch of a button.
An explosion of technological advancement has led neuroscientists to newer, more profound understandings of the human eye and brain. Inevitably, the traditional PLR assessment is no longer capable of keeping up—let alone facilitating the caliber of research being performed today. Thus, the quantitative pupillary light reflex (qPLR) was born.
“Its simplicity, safety and ease of use provides a sideline tool for a variety of medical professionals – such as athletic trainers who need immediate, on-the-field objective data to help diagnose a possible concussion or traumatic brain injury.” Further, Sluss pointed out: “Now the pupillary light reflex has the potential to become both an optometric or neurological vital as well as a specific biomarker for various medical conditions such as autism, Alzheimer’s and glaucoma."
Brightlamp’s premier pupillometer technology is officially available on the iOS application store for certified medical professionals. This ground breaking technology disrupts all current rapid neurocognitive assessment tests by being the first to directly measure cognitive functionality, no additional hardware.
The Eastern Athletics Trainer Association hosted brightlamp in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania to help get the word out to Athletic Trainers that there is a new pupillometer in town. Our interactions just reinforced the need in the athletic training community for a breakthrough, rapid, neurological assessment test.
