The retina is formed from the same cells as the brain and is therefore an integral part of the central nervous system. Effects of abnormalities in the structure and/or functioning of the brain can be detected in the retina.
diaMentis is developing a tool to aid in the diagnosis of mental health disorders from specific biosignatures in the retina. It should help clinicians to perform a faster and more accurate diagnosis and to more easily evaluate the choice of a treatment.
A “Software as a Medical Device” to support earlier diagnosis
The term “Software as a Medical Device” (SaMD) is defined by the FDA as a software intended to be used for medical purposes without being part of a hardware medical device.
diaMentis technology platform is based on an SaMD used in combination with commercially available ERG devices that are licensed for sale in their respective countries.
