Virtual Reality is coming to Nova Scotian Health Care.

Ryan Cameron and his Electric Puppets won $50,000 from the Spark Innovation Challenge.

He paired with the IWK Eye Care Clinic to improve their diagnostic and therapeutic tools.

He says it will let them track patient’s eye movements and pupil dilation.

“That gives us all kinds of diagnistic data about conditions and things they have in their eyes, including things like alignment,” he said.

“In some ways an unprecedented amount of data compared to the current tools they have.”

Other sparks winner from the South Shore include Finleaf Technologies, Nexus Robotics and Suru.

Spark funds technology-based businesses in early stages of development.

They first launched in Cape Breton in 2014 and have expanded across the province.
