Eyebrain Tracker to be used in clinical trial for Parkinson’s therapy

Eye Brain, a French developer of medical devices for early diagnosis of neurological diseases, has announced that its EyeBrain Tracker device is to be used in a clinical trial evaluating dyskinesia in Parkinson’s patients treated with levodopa. The EyeBrain Tracker, which was featured.Patients suffering from idiopathic Parkinson’s disease will undergo an acute test as part of a pre-operational assessment for stimulating the deep recesses of the brain.

EyeBrain manufactures medical devices for the early diagnosis of neurological diseases.These devices are based on the movement of the eyes, and they make it possible to test specific regions of the brain by recording and analyzing eye movements using very
sophisticated algorithms developed by the company. EyeBrain’s devices fill gap in neurological diagnostics. For the first time, clinicians can rely on a simple set of eye movement  parameters to differentiate between very similar syndromes, such as progressive supra-nuclear paralysis (PSP) and cortical degeneration (CBD). The test is easy to carry out, non-invasive, and the results are available in less than 20 minutes for a small cost.
The Mobile EyeBrain Tracker (EBT) comes as a complete solution including headphones, a computer with two screens and stimulation and analysis software. It is already being used routinely in hospitals to help with the early characterization of Parkinsonian syndromes. Studies are also underway for the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS).
The Mobile EBT is the only device of its kind in the world to have obtained CE marking. The company has ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certification. Eye Brain, which is based in the Paris suburb of Ivry-sur-Seine, was founded in 2008 and currently employs 15 people. It has raised funding of EUR 1.2 million from the CapDecisif and G1J venture capital funds and already generates revenues through the sale of the Eye Brain Tracker. It is engaged in collaborations with the French National Health and
Medical Research Institute (INSERM), the French National Scientific Research Center (CNRS), Paris University Hospitals group, the University of Paris-Descartes and the French Brain and Spinal Cord Institute.
