10,000  Patient Eyes Examined with Wearable AR/VR Diagnostic Platform

10,000 Patient Eyes Examined with Wearable AR/VR Diagnostic Platform

The company's platform delivers real-time vision diagnoses with six vision diagnostic exams, supported with five reimbursable CPT medical billing codes, in a single, wearable AR/VR headset. Eye care physicians can perform suprathreshold and full threshold visual fields, contrast sensitivity testing, color vision screening (both Ishihara and the Farnsworth D-15 extended color vision test), and dark adaptation. The platform replaces several legacy diagnostic devices and exceeds traditional standards of care in usability, cost, size, and portability.

Measuring Pulse Waves with Hair Thin Printed Patches

Measuring Pulse Waves with Hair Thin Printed Patches

A pulse wave is a wave in which the blood flow - that originates from the heartbeat - is transmitted to the body. It is an important biosignal that indicates cardiovascular health. Analyzing the pulse wave signal can diagnose cardiac conditions including high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and more. However, conventional pulse wave measuring devices are cumbersome as they require wearing the blood-pressure measuring cuff or stiff tong-shaped sensor and can mostly be performed at hospitals.
