Improving the lives of people who suffer from computer intolerance


When it comes to recovering from a concussion, one of the persisting symptoms is the inability to look at a computer screen – a symptom that is often referred to as “computer intolerance”. With most monitors having a refresh rate of 60 Hz, the constant flickering can be a painful, if not impossible, experience. This widespread symptom can prevent concussion sufferers from returning to work and/or school. At Iris technologies, we are committed to using assistive technology to help individuals suffering from a concussion or computer intolerance reclaim their lives in our digital world.


David Goldband is an accountant with Grant Thornton LLP who suffered a concussion playing hockey in January 2017. In this video he shares his story.

Dr. Richard Riopelle – The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation
"The Iris Monitor is much easier for me to use then a regular screen. My eyes and brain don't fatigue as quickly and I find it soothing to look at. Using the Iris Monitor helped me gradually increase my screen time with fewer headaches than using a normal monitor. I plan to continue to use the the Iris Monitor throughout my recovery and after."

"These results are very encouraging as they indicate there may be a technology that allows PCS sufferers with photophobia and screen intolerance to return to work or school faster."

Dr. Charles Tator - neurosurgeon and Director, Canadian Concussion Centre.
"Our students found it to be very helpful to use during their concussion recovery as a return to learn tool. Specifically, the students found that reading was much easier to do for longer periods of time as compared to reading off of traditional monitors."
