Key Solutions

We needed to create a program that could properly compute the right data based on a patient's eye movements and package it in a user-friendly design. It would also be important to run a multitude of tests to fine tune the data.

Final Results & Takeaways

The Refinery prototyped, designed, developed and launched new technology to aid doctors in the diagnosis and treatment of autism in children. The success of this project was achieved through real-time evaluation of biometric data from the patient in a clinical setting.
