SyncThink uses a DK2 Oculus Rift develop kit with eye-tracking sensors that allow quick and portable access to athletes to discover early brain trauma.

SyncThink specializes in neurotechnology and received FDA clearance to use the EYE-SYNC on March 22nd, 2016. EYE-SYNC analyzes eye movement and reportedly can assess abnormal eye movement in under 60 seconds.

The headsets are being used in the Stanford University Athletic programs. The company also announced that Indiana University will be using the EYE-SYNC technology to study sub concussive head impacts.
