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 - diagnosis and therapy of neurological diseases
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.

mindQ has developed eyeTrax for the research of neurological diseases.
The eyeTrax system consists of a virtual reality system based on the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, integrated eye tracking cameras and three-dimensional simulation software.

By combining the VR systems with modern eye tracking solutions and three-dimensional simulations, a wide range of visual abilities can be tested and measured objectively. The investigations are based on the evaluation of the eye movements in correlation with the visual stimuli generated by the simulation.

The precision of the pupil detection is +/- 0.08 degrees with an accuracy of 0.6 degrees with a tracking frequency of 120 Hz.
In addition to the pupil size in the millimeter range, both the viewing direction as well as fast eye movements (saccades) and eyelids for both eyes can be detected and recorded separately.

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 is currently being used to identify, quantify and monitor the influence of mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and concussions to distinct reaction times and the human visual system.
