Numerous systems for the evaluation of eye and body positions are currently offered, but their wider application is impeded by their high financial demands. The systems developed at CTU are their direct opposite trying to use technology commonly available even in everyday life. The adaptation of older, but also new devices to the doctors’ needs, their replacement with new units, but also the design and construction of completely new specialized devices, all this falls under the research team’s rich activity involving the participation of many students. Within the wide scope of activities, the following three applications must be mentioned:

•    pupillometry and craniocorpography

•    a system for a measurement of immediate head position based on an analytical calculation of angles evaluated by means of two cameras placed opposite each other, with a correction of axial non-alignment;

•    measurement and analysis of motion in neurological patients.
