HMDmd to participate at BIOMEDevice 2019 in San Jose with Live Demonstration on Dec. 4.
Developing a Wearable Display for Surgeons (Live Demonstration)
Cameras and screens have been used to augment surgeons’ vision for years, enabling them to see magnified surgical sites for greater precision. But as helpful as on-screen technology can be, it can also be challenging ergonomically as surgeons struggle to operate comfortably while moving around to look at the screens. Working closely with surgeons, HMDmd. CEO John R. Lyon and Senior Vice President Allen Newman developed a medical-grade head-mounted wearable display that uses 3D and high-resolution OLEDs to improve visualization and ergonomics for surgeons during surgery. Both John and Allen will take a deep dive into their development journey, clinical utilization, and live demo of the display.
BIOMEDevice San Jose, Silicon Valley’s leading event for medtech professionals, will focus this year on digital health solutions and related technologies. Throughout the two-day event, a series of sessions, presentations, panels, and case studies will be presented by industry innovators and thought leaders, addressing healthcare’s growing convergence with digital technologies, how to accelerate these product’s speed-to-market, and finding the resources to scale. With the spotlight on digital health technologies including artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, wearables, and much more, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from and network with the leading minds driving meaningful advancements in healthcare. BIOMEDevice San Jose will take place December 4 and 5 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA.
