mQm - Virtual Reality in operations planning
mindQ's Virtual Reality Solution mQm allows surgeons the natural interaction and a freely selectable viewing angle on the CT / MRT data generated model.
Using room tracking, the surgeon is able to move freely in the simulation or even into the model.
With the motion controllers, the surgeon can freely scale, rotate, highlight, measure and mark points of interest or problem areas.
In this way, surgeons will be able to test different surgical approaches in the run-up to the operation and will find the best, most minimally invasive and, at the same time, resource-conserving solution.
This improved presentation of complex pathologies in the run-up to difficult interventions can assist surgeons in the optimal preparation of surgical procedures and thus help achieve a very good surgical result.

The abstract process of operation planning is clearly defined and materialized by mQm.
Through the virtual reality technology used by mQm, the quality of the training of physicians can be significantly improved.

eyeTrax system - Analysis of fast eye movements in Virtual Reality
The costs caused by neurological diseases are steadily increasing. Especially when they are detected late.
Recent research shows that many neurological diseases can be detected by recognizing abnormal eye movements.

The eyeTrax system was developed by mindQ for the examination and analysis of oculomotor function (eye movements and pupil function). Using high-performance eye tracking cameras - integrated into virtual reality glasses - the eye movements are precisely detected and evaluated with the help of eyeTrax software. The results document possible deficits of the oculomotor functions, which are also of great importance in professional sports.

The oculomotor function is tested using a 3D simulation that triggers visual stimuli in a targeted and reproducible manner. The high-performance eye tracking cameras detect eye movements and pupil reactions when tracking and searching for moving objects and light stimuli by detecting and tracking the pupil in the video image using computer vision algorithms. In contrast to screen-based systems, 3D simulation also measures accommodation performance (convergence and divergence).

eyeTrax combines a series of advanced algorithms and evaluates the results for both eyes separately. Different measurements can be compared intraindividually. The reproducible and objectifiable data allow conclusions to be drawn about the cognitive function of the brain.

Concussions are in the focus of the public and of sport-medical examinations not only since the head injury of Christoph Kramer in the soccer world cup finals in Brazil 2014.
So-called mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) in sports are often not recognized, not treated accordingly, and the affected persons are often integrated into the training and competition process too quickly.

eyeTrax conducts studies with renowned scientists on the diagnosis of the mild traumatic brain injuries using eye tracking and virtual reality technology. In cooperation with clinically active scientists and sports physicians, neuro-ophthalmological parameters in the acute phase after a mild traumatic brain injury are recorded and evaluated with regard to their sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of a the mild traumatic brain injury.

These parameters are intended to improve diagnostic certainty by means of objectifiable functional parameters for mild traumatic brain injuries. The specificity of the method is also of great importance for the optimal control of a healing procedure and thus for the decision on professional reintegration.

The procedure for approval as a Class 1 medical device has already been initiated in Germany (oculomotor performance diagnostics) and in the USA.
