Robotic system can analyse eye movements to detect Parkinson’s

June 14, 2018

Researchers at Spain’s Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and start-up AURA Innotive Robotics have developed a new robotic system called OSCANN Desk, designed to accurately analyse eye movements for detecting neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

The fast yet non-invasive technology leverages imaging processing and machine learning to deliver objective brain functioning data, which is expected to aid in early diagnosis and customised treatments.
