Severe concussions where a person is visibly shaken or knocked unconscious are obviously cause for concern, but milder ones that go undetected can also lead to dangerous health impacts down the track. A new smartphone app could prove pivotal in this area, using a mobile device’s camera to scan the pupil for telltale signs of injury on the spot.

We’ve seen a number of promising breakthroughs when it comes to detecting concussion, such as systems that track eye movements in search of symptoms and blood tests that can pick them up seven days after the incident. Knowing whether an athlete has suffered a concussion or not is important, because if left untreated it can not only lead to immediate consequences like headaches and memory loss, but further knocks to the head can pose even graver, long-term health risks.

So a smartphone app that can be used on the sideliness to immediately screen for concussion would be a game-changer, and that is exactly what researchers at the University of Washington (UW) have set out to develop. Called PupilScreen, the technology works by tracking the pupil’s response to light, something known as the pupillary light reflex, which is a technique already used to gauge traumatic brain injuries.

While this pupillary light reflex has been used to assess serious brain injuries, recent research has shown that the technique can also reveal less severe ones, such as light concussions. So looking to take advantage of this new knowledge, the UW team has developed an app that uses the smartphone’s camera, along with deep learning tools, to pick up changes in pupillary light reflex that are invisible to the naked eye.

The phone’s flash is used to stimulate the eye and the camera than captures a three-second video. Deep learning algorithms then determine which pixels belong to the pupil in each frame, and in this way track changes in pupil size across the duration of the video. Putting the app to the test, the team tried it out in a pilot study involving 48 subjects, including both healthy patients and some with traumatic brain injuries. Using the app, clinicians were able to diagnose the brain injuries with almost perfect accuracy and almost as well as a pupilometer, an expensive machine found only in hospitals.

From here the team plans to conduct a broader clinical study in the coming months that will see the app put through its paces by coaches, medical technicians and doctors. They will also look to make improvements to the system, which currently requires the phone to be placed inside a box to control light exposure, and hope to produce a commercially available system within two years. “The vision we’re shooting for is having someone simply hold the phone up and use the flash,” said lead author Alex Mariakakis. “We want every parent, coach, caregiver or EMT who is concerned about a brain injury to be able to use it on the spot without needing extra hardware.”

Zwim Goggles Bring HUD Tech to the Pool

Zwim is currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign(Credit: Zwim)


 

 

 

 

In recent years, we’ve seen electronically-augmented goggles that allow swimmers to monitor their heart rate, and to stay on course when swimming outdoors. Well, Zwim goggles are claimed to go quite a bit farther. They feature an actual Google Glass-like head-up display (HUD), that tracks the same sort of data as a swimmer’s sports watch.

Conceived by triathlete Taegoo Kang, Zwim’s display unit incorporates a six-axis accelerometer, along with an optical sensor that measures the wearer’s pulse via the skin on their temple. These and other electronics allow it to keep track of things such as lap time, lap count, total elapsed time, heart rate and calories burned.

Data is displayed on a small screen that appears on the right-hand side of the wearer’s vision. By tapping a button, they can switch between different data sets on that screen, plus they can choose how much data is displayed – the screen can be divided from one to four sections, each one displaying a different stat.

When the user gets out of the pool, they can sync Zwim with an app on their smartphone, allowing them to save and share all of their data. One charge of the lithium-ion battery should be good for about four hours of use. Additionally, the actual goggle lenses themselves detach from the display unit, and can be replaced separately when they wear out.

So, if swim watches exist already, why bother? Well, the big selling feature of Zwim is that it allows users to keep track of everything without having to stop swimming – they just glance into their peripheral vision. Additionally, it’s claimed to be better at detecting the changes in direction which indicate that one lap has ended and another has begun. Kang and his team have turned to Indiegogo to fund production of Zwim goggles, where a pledge of US$199 will currently get you a set. The planned retail price is $395, with replacement lenses going for about $15.

تطبيق لأجهزة الهواتف الذكية يمسح حدقة العين للكشف عن ارتجاج الدماغ

يستخدم تطبيق "بيوبل سكرين" فلاش الهاتف لتحفيز العين ثم تلتقط الكاميرا فيديو لمدة ثلاث ثوان باحثة عن علامات عن ارتجاج في الدماغ. ( بعدسة دينيس وايز/ جامعة واشنطن)


 





 

نيك لافارس
من الواضح أن ارتجاجات الدماغ الشديدة التي يمكن أن تسبب لمن يصاب بها رجفة أو فقداناً في الوعي، هي سبب يدعو للقلق، لكن بإمكان ارتجاجات الدماغ الأخف وطأة والتي لا يتم كشفها أن تؤدي إلى آثار صحية خطيرة في نهاية المطاف، ويمكن لتطبيق جديد على الأجهزة الهاتف الذكية أن يكون بالغ الأهمية في هذا المضمار حيث يستخدم كاميرا الجهاز المحمول لمسح حدقة العين للبحث عن علامات ضرر ذات مؤشرات عالية على الفور.

لقد شهدنا عدداً من الانجازات الواعدة عندما يتعلق الأمر بالكشف عن ارتجاج الدماغ، مثل تلك الأنظمة التي تتتبع حركات العين بحثاً عن الأعراض وتحاليل الدم التي يمكن أن تكتشف تلك الأعراض بعد سبعة أيام من الحادث، ومن المهم معرفة ما إذا كان الرياضي قد عانى من ارتجاج دماغي أم لا، لأنه إذا تُرك دون علاج فإنه لا يمكن أن يؤدي فقط إلى عواقب فورية مثل الصداع وفقدان الذاكرة ولكن من شأن المزيد من صدمات الرأس التي يتعرض لها أن تشكل مخاطر صحية وخيمة وطويلة الأمد.

لذلك فإن تطبيق الأجهزة الذكية الذي يمكن استخدامه بسهولة للبحث بشكل مباشر عن ارتجاج الدماغ سيغير الوضع إلى حد كبير، وهذا هو بالضبط ما يقوم الباحثون بتطويره في جامعة واشنطن، حيث تعمل هذه التقنية بواسطة تتبع استجابة حدقة العين للضوء وهي معروفة باسم منعكس الضوء الحدقي وهي تقنية تم استخدامها مسبقاً لقياس إصابات الدماغ الرضية.

في حين أن منعكس الضوء الحدقي قد استُخدم لتقييم إصابات الدماغ الخطيرة، فقد أظهرت الأبحاث الحديثة أن هذه التقنية يمكن أن تكشف أيضاً عن إصابات أقل منها حدة مثل ارتجاج الدماغ الخفيف، لذلك وللاستفادة من هذه المعرفة الجديدة، طوّر فريق جامعة واشنطن تطبيقاً يستخدم كاميرا الأجهزة الذكية مع أدوات الذكاء الاصطناعي لالتقاط التغييرات في منعكس الضوء الحدقي التي تكون غير مرئية للعين المجردة.

كما يُستخدم فلاش الهاتف لتحفيز العين ثم يمكن للكاميرا أن تلتقط فيديو لمدة ثلاث ثوان، ثم تقوم خوارزميات الذكاء الاصطناعي بتحديد وحدات البكسل التي تنتمي إلى الحدقة في كل إطار وبهذه الطريقة تقوم بتتبع التغييرات في حجم الحدقة عبر الفترة الزمنية للفيديو، وقد جرب الفريق الذي قام بوضع التطبيق قيد الاختبار الجهاز على48 شخصاً في دراسة تجريبية شملت كلاً من الأشخاص الأصحاء والمرضى المصابين بإصابات رضية في الدماغ، وباستخدام هذا التطبيق يستطيع الأطباء السريريون تشخيص إصابات الدماغ بدقة مثالية تقريباً تماماً مثل تلك التي يوفرها مقياس الحدقة وهو جهاز باهظ الثمن يوجد فقط في المستشفيات.

ومن هنا يخطط الفريق لإجراء دراسة سريرية أوسع في الأشهر المقبلة بحيث سنرى المدربين والأطباء والفنيين الطبيين يضعون التطبيق موضع الاختبار، كما أنهم سيضعون نصب أعينهم إدخال تحسينات على النظام، حيث يتطلب الجهاز حالياً وضع الهاتف داخل صندوق للتحكم في التعرض للضوء، ولكننا نأمل أن ننتج نظاماً متاحاً تجارياً في غضون سنتين.

يقول المخترع الرئيسي أليكس مارياكاكيس: "إن الرؤية التي نتطلع إليها تتمثل ببساطة في استخدام الأشخاص للجهاز من خلال إمساك الهاتف واستخدام الفلاش، ونحن نريد من كل الآباء والأمهات أو المدربين أو مقدمي الرعاية أو فنيي الطوارئ الطبية القلقين بخصوص الإصابات الدماغية أن يكونوا قادرين على استخدامه على الفور دون الحاجة إلى أجهزة إضافية."

نظارات زويم الواقية تجلب تقنية العرض الرأسي "HUD" إلى حمام السباحة
  بن كوكسوورث
في السنوات الأخيرة، شهدنا اختراع نظارات واقية مزودة بتقنية الكترونية عالية تتيح للسباحين مراقبة معدل ضربات قلوبهم وتساعدهم على المحافظة على المسار الصحيح أثناء السباحة في الهواء الطلق، ويبدو أن نظارات زويم الواقية تذهب إلى أبعد من ذلك بقليل، حيث تتميز هذه التقنية بعرض رأسي HUD بالشكل الواقعي مثل نظارات (غوغل غلاس) والتي تتتبع نفس نوع البيانات المستخدمة في ساعة السباحين الرياضية.

صُمّمت وحدة العرض في نظارات زويم من قبل الرياضي تيغو كانغ الذي يمارس ثلاث رياضات، وهي تضم مقياس تسارع ذو ستة محاور، جنباً إلى جنب مع جهاز استشعار بصري يقيس نبض مستخدمها عبر جلد الصدغ، بالإضافة إلى قطع الكترونية أخرى تتيح للنظارات تتبع الأشياء مثل وقت دورات السباحة وعددها وإجمالي وقت السباحة ومعدل ضربات القلب والسعرات الحرارية التي يتم حرقها.

تُعرض البيانات على شاشة صغيرة تظهر على القسم الأيمن من النظارات، وعن طريق النقر على زر، يمكن لمستخدم النظارات التبديل بين مجموعات البيانات المختلفة على تلك الشاشة، بالإضافة إلى أنه يمكن إختيار كم البيانات المعروضة كما يمكن تقسيم الشاشة من قسم واحد إلى أربعة أقسام، بحيث يعرض كل قسم معلومات مختلفةً.

وعندما يخرج المستخدم من حمام السباحة، يمكنه مزامنة نظارات زويم مع تطبيق على هاتفه الذكي، مما يتيح له الفرصة لحفظ ومشاركة جميع بياناته الخاصة.

ويمكن لبطارية الليثيوم أيون المشحونة لمرة واحدة الاستمرار في حالة عمل جيدة لمدة أربع ساعات، وبالإضافة إلى ذلك، فإن عدسات النظارات الواقية الفعلية تكون منفصلة عن وحدة العرض، ويمكن استبدالها على نحو منفصل في حال تلفها.

لذلك إذا كانت ساعات السباحة موجودة سابقاً فلم نتكبد عناء استخدام شيء أخر؟ إن ميزة البيع الكبرى لنظارات زويم تأتي من أنها تتيح للمستخدمين تتبع كل شيء دون الحاجة إلى التوقف عن السباحة، إذ عليهم فقط إلقاء نظرة على الجزء المحيطي لمعرفة كل المعلومات، وبالإضافة إلى ذلك، تعتبر النظارات ذات أداء أفضل بالنسبة لرصد تغييرات الاتجاه الأمر الذي يشير إلى نهاية دورة واحدة من السباحة وبداية دورة أخرى.

لجأ كانغ وفريقه لشركة إنديغوغو لتمويل إنتاج نظارات زويم، حيث يمكن شراء النظارات 199مقابل دولاراً أمريكياً فقط ، ويبلغ سعر التجزئة المخطط له 395 دولاراً أمريكياً، كما يبلغ سعر العدسات البديلة حوالي 15 دولاراً أمريكياً.
