Complete software package for Infrascanner data

Infrascanner

Portable, lightweight devices that use Near-Infrared technology to screen patients for intercranial bleeding within the Golden hour.

Innovation

In patients with head trauma, early screening for required neurosurgical intervention can be the difference between life and death.

Applications

Approved and in-use on three continents for clinical applications including emergency rooms, intensive care units, military field hospitals, remote locations and sports facilities.

Infrascanner Model 1000

The Infrascanner Model 1000 is a portable screening device that uses Near-Infrared (NIR) technology to screen patients for intracranial bleeding, identifying those who would most benefit from immediate referral to a CT scan and neurosurgical intervention. In the triage of head trauma patients, the Infrascanner can identify patients most likely to have intracranial bleeding.

The Infrascanner Model 1000 unit is a small, portable handheld device based on a PDA platform with a wireless sensor. The Sensor includes an eye safe NIR diode laser and an optical detector. The light to and from the laser and detector are optically coupled to the patient’s head through two disposable light guides. The detector signal is digitized and transmitted via a Bluetooth wireless link to the PDA. The PDA receives the data from the Sensor and automatically adjusts the settings of the Sensor to ensure good data quality. The data is further processed by the PDA and the results are displayed on the PDA screen.

Applications

The Infrascanner is approved for sale in International markets for the following applications:

  • Emergency Rooms
  • Intensive Care Units
  • Military Field Hospitals
  • Remote locations
  • Sports facilities
