Handheld Device Can Detect Intracranial Bleeding

Handheld Device Can Detect Intracranial Bleeding

Rock Hill, SC Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

The more time it takes to diagnose a brain bleed means a longer period of time before it is treated, putting you at greater the risk of permanent brain damage.

The company InfraScan Inc. has developed a portable device that uses near-infrared technology to identify patients with intracranial bleeding. It is especially beneficial for military field situations, and sports injuries. Once the device identifies a potential brain bleed, the patient can be rushed to a CT scan or even neurosurgery to speed the patient on the road to recovery.

The InfraScan Inc. was recently awarded the Hillier Ignite Lifesaving Innovation Award.

“Traumatic brain injury touches many veterans and military families. For those injured far from the diagnostic machines available in hospitals, fast and accurate assessment of the impact of head trauma can be the difference between life and death, said Luke Hillier, Founder and President of  Hillier Ignite. “The Infrascanner 2000 is the lifesaving innovation that makes this possible, within minutes, and as with many great innovations, it has both military and civilian applications.”

This device has already be field-tested by the Navy and Marines in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and is already saving lives.
