While breathalyzers have proven to be effective in detecting alcohol impairment, recently introduced devices that detect the presence of cannabis cannot scientifically assess impairment levels. THC metabolizes differently than alcohol and its mere presence does not indicate impairment.
WinTerra Ocular’s Mobile Impairment Screener is a hand-held, wireless device that will detect functional impairment—regardless of whether the underlying cause is alcohol, drugs, fatigue or a combination thereof.
It will give users scientifically validated data that will help them to make objective, data-driven decisions. The WinTerra Mobile Impairment Screener will be fast (within a few minutes), less expensive, easy to use, and non-invasive. This solution will go beyond roadside testing—we will make more accurate impairment testing a reality for correctional systems, border-control agencies, addiction treatment specialists and employers.
Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability. And yet, because the symptoms of concussion are mild, injured people are more likely to decline medical treatment. Early detection can play an essential part in correctly and safely treating the injury.
We are building on our existing ocular platform to develop the WinTerra Mobile Concussion Screener, an easy and reliable method of immediate, on-the-spot testing for concussion. Our test will enable non-medical professionals, such as teachers, daycare providers, employers, coaches and sport officials, to rapidly and accurately obtain data to decide whether someone has likely sustained a concussion and needs medical treatment.
Access to vision testing is a global problem. Testing equipment is heavy and stationary, meaning that patients have to come to professionals in offices and labs to get tested. This makes getting vision testing done next to impossible for people with limited mobility or living in remote communities.
We are building on our existing ocular platform to develop the WinTerra Mobile Vision Screener, a wireless, hand-held vision test that will provide universal access to high-quality vision screening for anyone, anywhere in the world. Our test will be fast and inexpensive. And because it’s small and easy to carry, non-medical professionals will be able to take vision screening to the patient, then send the data to medical professionals remotely.
