One device, a suite of rapid eye examination tests to early detect ophthalmological and neurological conditions

CE_FDA

Our purpose

Our aim is to screen for ophthalmological (glaucoma, AMD, nystagmus) and neurological (dementia) conditions by offering clinicians one device that can perform multiple rapid neuro-ophthalmic eye examination tests. Our unique BulbiHUB platform and BulbiCAM currently offers the user multiple tests to screen for glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and nystagmus. Ultimately our BulbiCAM will include multiple tests to screen for both ophthalmological and neurological conditions.

Our technology maintains good vision and cognitive health across a lifetime.

Current Tests

Visual Field test

Visual Field test

Based on eye movement perimetry our 26-point visual field test screens the patient's visual field in 90 seconds per eye. Measuring the saccadic reaction time, an index for detection of glaucomatous visual field defects, our visual field test quantifies the reaction time towards a peripheral target and detects blind spots

Pupil test

Pupil test

Our pupil test, in four sequences of alternating black and white light patters, simultaneously quantifies both direct and consensual pupillary light reflex in order to detect Relative Afferent Pupil Defect (RAPD)

Ptosis test

Ptosis test

Ptosis is a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid and can be one of the first signs of stroke, brain tumour, cancer, neurological disorders or damage to the nerves or muscles supporting the eyelid

Amsler test

Amsler is a test when doctor has suspicion on Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Worth Four Dot test

W4D is a screening test for binocularity. Often made for children.

Upcoming Tests

Acuity test

Acuity test

Eye tracking based acuity testing is objective, doesn’t require operational assistance, and takes just 60 seconds

Nystagmus test

Nystagmus test

Nystagmus is a “wobbling eye” due to an involuntary eye movement. Nystagmus prevalence is estimated to be 24 persons in a 10.000 population. Currently there is no objective quantification of nystagmus

Strabismus test

Strabismus test

Eye deviations are manually assessed, and subjectively interpreted. BulbiCAM will quantify the results of horizontal and vertical eye deviations

Contrast vision test

The contrast vision test is used to quantify to which degree the patient can perceive objects with low contrast. The test requires no communication with the operator. Several diseases like optic neuritis and cataract can reduce contrast vision.

Vergence Test

Vergence test

Automated smooth vergence assessment, using virtually 3D stimulus, gives quantified data for near point of convergence and recovery including near pupil reflex

Saccade test

Performed during the visual field test our saccade test measures the peak velocity of horizontal, vertical and oblique saccades to early detect potential neurological diseases, such as Parkinson's disease, dementia or Huntington's disease

Benefits of our technology

The problems we solve

Our clinical importance

Dr. Bjørn Helland-Hansen introducing Bulbitech’s technology and explaining the importance of having one single device available in daily clinical practice that combines perimetry, pupillography and nystagmography.

Early detection of functional disorders with a dedicated platform and diagnostic device that replaces the manual examination and saves time

Decentralizing access to screening of ophthalmological and neurological conditions by introducing rapid eye examination tests

Rapid screening supports already understaffed eye care professionals to face an increase demand of eye care by providing them with a platform and diagnostic support device in which the patient does the work and can be operated by anyone

Generating objective data and clinical results to improve health outcome and research

BulbiCAM

One diagnostic device integrating perimetry, pupillography and nystagmography

Our solution

BulbiHUB platform

BulbiHUB platform assesses the data measured by BulbiCAM. BulbiHUB is an innovative point-of-care eye platform for the screening of ophthalmological and neurological disorders.

Telemedicine

Assessed data can be shared between and amongst clinical from peripheral locations to one central location, resulting in a clinical workflow that can continue remotely during pandemic outbreaks

AI [Artificial Intelligence]

Algorithms can be developed to detect early stage neuro- ocular dysfunctions and analyze our collected data for research purpose
