AcuNetx offers "smart devices" that are complete solutions, by adding data gathering, networking and reporting features to its products.

Each AcuNetx device measures, assesses or affects human physiology. At the core of AcuNetx's technology is the use of infrared illumination of the eyes to record and capture eye movements. AcuNetx is a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of balance disorders (vertigo or dizziness) by measuring eye movements. AcuNetx has sold over 5,000 medical devices since1994. This same eye tracking technology has led to the development of SafetyScan which measures impairment risk for potentially more than 25 million "high risk" workers in the US alone, by providing a pass/fail signal based on the Standardized Field Sobriety Test(SFST). In addition to this "cleared for duty" safety test, AcuNetx's eye tracking technology is being used to train police forces to administer the SFST and to provide an "in the field" device that will record the data.

DO is practiced by plastic surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, otolaryngologists, and orthopedic surgeons, to correct deformities and deficiencies of the skeleton caused by errors of birth, trauma, infections and tumors. Three of these OrthoNetx products are now FDA-approved.
