About Blinkcns
Blinkcns is a biotechnology company dedicated to improving the detection, differentiation, and management of neurological disease through rapid, noninvasive collection of objective data from the eyes. Blinkcns has the world's first FDA-cleared patented device, called EyeStat, that provides fast, objective data about the blink reflex, a component of the startle response. EyeStat deploys eight light puffs of air across a patient's eyelashes to stimulate their blink reflex in a 30-second test. The system uses high-speed videography to capture and record the eyelids and measure 10 physiological parameters of the blink reflex using a proprietary algorithm. Blinkcns continues to research and apply its technology to several neurological states and conditions such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease / dementia, and migraine. Learn more at
