Researchers at Purdue University have developed a new non-invasive technology to detect neurological alterations caused by disease and/or injury. The current Pupillary light reflex (PLR) tests are conducted by pen light exam, which tends to be heuristic, empirical, qualitative often leading to misdiagnosis due to human error. Even though there are some quantitative pupillometry devices that are available in the market, it is often associated with high startup cost and a work accurately under a narrow range of conditions. This PLR technology developed at Purdue uses elegant mathematical modeling to detect neurological alterations. It is compatible with any imaging platform and eye color. It delivers automated, accurate, objective measurements in real-time.

Advantages:
-Portable
- Easy to use
-Accurate
- Automated

Potential Applications:
-Monitor neurological alterations due to disease and/or injury
