BCN Innova




Assist Ophthalmologists in developing, manufacturing and commercializing new "diagnosis support devices" that measures the Ocular Motility using computer vision technologies and other engineering disciplines.




GazeLab will become the standard measurement system for strabismus, pupil dynamics, and nystagmus as well as for other measurements that we will develop in the future.


Guiding Principles


bcninnova has its own soul. Our common values - shared by all those people who are part of the company - are:

  • We develop technology for the health of mankind.
  • We make top quality devices at adjusted Costs.
  • We are a research company.
  • We are an efficient company.
  • We are not only motivated by the profit motif.



As the person responsible for the Ophthalmology Department at the Pediatric Hospital of Sant Joan de Déu in Barcelona (one of the largest of its kind in Europe), Dr. Joan Prat is perfectly aware of the limitations of the technology available for ophthalmologists.

For this reason, in 2006, he started a project to develop a new measurement system for strabismus.

The project underwent numerous problems and difficulties, but thanks to the impetus and determination of those working on it, it was possible to set up the company bcninnova.
