New instrument to determine health by scanning eyes

West Virginia-based MD Biotech is developing an ocular scanning instrument that will allow doctors and emergency workers to determine a patient’s health by scanning their eyes.

According to the company, the instrument can detect a wide range of injuries, illnesses and physical abnormalities.


The DARPA has given them a $915,000 grant to help them develop the project.

“Military personnel, emergency agencies and medical professionals who deal in emergency first response and medical care are in critical need of a rapid, noninvasive and inexpensive technology, such as the OSI, that monitors personnel and patient health,” explained C.E.O. W.C. Bird.
