Developing a telemedical tool for detecting oculomotor dysfunctions
MetadataShow full item record
As a lot of children have oculomotor dysfunctions without knowing it, a method of efficient screening will help diagnose those suspected of having problems. As it is expensive and time consuming for visual educators or subjects to travel to a location where the examination can be held, Gunnvor Wilhelmsen wished for a better solution. She therefore suggested to continue development of Ruben Watanabe and Mads G. Eide's CAndLook application, which allows for local examinations. The solution Wilhelmsen wanted was an application which could perform examinations without having the visual educator and subject present at the same location. This thesis presents an attempt to develop an application which serves this purpose by using CAndLook as a base. The application was developed with a server working as an intermediated and storage device and two clients, one for the visual educator and one for the subject of the examination. The prototype developed in this projects shows that it is possible for a visual educator and subject to connect to each other and remotely carry out an examination. The results from an examination can also be stored on a remote server for later access and analysis. Although currently being a prototype, the results goes to show that a fully functional telemedical tool for diagnosing oculomotor dysfunction can be developed.
