P3Lab, a European startup founded in 2020 is developing NeuroClues®, a medical device based on eye tracking to support early diagnosis and prognosis of neurological diseases.
NeuroClues® brings the state-of-the-art eye tracking research to the consultation. Thanks to NeuroClues®, neurologists will instantly quantify their clinical examination while removing the need for complementary exams, thus decreasing by months the patient’s time to a diagnosis. This breakthrough innovation allows detecting 5 years in advance specific symptoms like gait freezing.
The company has just received the ISO 13485:2016 certification for design and development of eye tracking devices. P3Lab reaches a new milestone by becoming a certified medical device producer.

P3Lab is on a mission to propagate an eye-tracking solution (NeuroClues®) to help objectively diagnose neurological diseases such as Parkinson, Multiple sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury and Alzheimer which collectively affect 3% of European and North American populations.
