Using the iPad to Detect Concussions

University of Notre Dame researchers have developed an iPad tool to detect concussions using a patient’s voice input. Athletes suspected to have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can use the iPad tool for rapid diagnosis.  The tool analyzes speech for TBI indicators such as distorted vowels, nasality and imprecise consonants. Results have shown high accuracy and the tool is cheaper and more reliable than traditional methods.
