My Modular Optical Brain Imager (MOBI) is an optics based portable brain imager used to assist in drastically shortening recovery time post-stroke. It funded by the National Institutes of Health . The motivation came from when I was developing a Space Suit for SpaceX. I was looking for a non-invasive device to integrate into an astronauts helmet to both assist in determining a "fit for flight" metric, and to assist in quantifying recovery post traumatic brain injuries that may occur in low-resource environments.
