Vuzix says University of Rochester Medical Center using its M400 Smart Glasses for surgeon training and patient education

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI) announced Friday that its M400 Smart Glasses are being used by the University of Rochester Medical Center surgeon for training and the education of patients to better help them understand their surgical procedures. 

“AR (augmented reality) is easy to use in training as the software behind it is very seamless,” said Michael Hasselberg, associate director of the University of Rochester Medical Health Lab. “Vuzix is innovative and has made its hardware more user friendly and more comfortable to use for longer periods of time. Where AR is used the most today is in the medical training of students.”

Vuzix recently announced that neurosurgeons at the University Malaya Specialist Centre in Malaysia used the M400 Smart Glasses as part of a successful COVID-19 study. Doctors turned to the special glasses as a way to limit the number of medical personnel attending to patients as a protective measure to conserve personal protective equipment.  

Nevertheless, Vuzix CEO Paul Travers said it was “rewarding” that a hospital “in our own backyard” is putting to work the special glasses.

“Our presence with our Smart Glasses products in the healthcare vertical continues to steadily expand both throughout the United States and across the globe in multiple European countries, Malaysia, Thailand, Tokyo and Taiwan,” he said.
