Never be caught without your neuro torch again or have to borrow someones else’s. This is what every doctor, nurse, paramedics or other health care workers can have everyday in their pocket.

This neurological screening app aims to give an essential, reliable, objective way of recording the conscious state of a person / child for initial as well as subsequent examinations.

This app uses together the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), pupil size and pupil response.

This neurological assessment is used globally by all health care workers in acute/ chronic medical and trauma settings.

The GCS is composed of 3 tests . Eye, Verbal and Motor responses (see scale). The sum of the score is expressed in the form “GCS 8 = E2 V4 M2 “.

Generally brain injury is classified as :
*Severe, GCS less than 9
*Moderate, GCS 9-12
*Minor, GCS 13-14.

Pupil size and reaction to light are important neurological observations. pupils size should be round and equal in size and withdraw quickly to light and dilate again once the light has been removed.
For example important changes such as pinpoint non-reactive pupils are seen with opiate overdose and haemorrhage. One dilated or fixed pupil may be an indication of an expanding or developing intracranial lesion.

The Neuro Torch app includes very easy access to the on/off button providing for single handed operation, and the brightness buttons on the app mean the torch can easily be adjusted to suit any lighting environment.

Once this app is opened it provides the health care worker with the tools required for an initial neurological assessment of any adult, child or infant in any environment whether it is in the emergency resus room, roadside at an MVA, sporting event, general practice surgery, hospital ward or patients home.
