Grace Labs.  Grace Labs has developed a sideline blood test that can tell in five minutes if a mild concussion has occurred. A major medical problem in sports, the military and the general population is mild concussion or mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). Mild concussion is very difficult to diagnose as there is no cracked skull or blood in the brain. Determining if a mTBI has occurred is important, so patient can avoid multiple concussions, which can cause serious injury, even death. There is no FDA approved blood test for mild concussion. www.gracelabratories.com

Dyopvision has developed a new and revolutionary eye test, called the Dyop test, to replace the letter-based Snellen test as the global standard for acuity measurement. A Dyop is a rotating segmented circle used to precisely measure visual clarity . As the rotating Dyop becomes smaller, it becomes difficult to detect its rotation. That minimum rotation diameter th reshold creates an acuity endpoint - the same type of endpoint used by doctors for refractions. www.dyopvision.com
