The Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses with the Gemvision software, a private cloud-based platform, enables frontline healthcare providers to call and consult with a doctor while keeping their hands free to perform any treatment. The Gemvision platform also comes equipped with a call center dashboard for external users and allows remote experts to collaborate and illustrate during live video sessions.  The feedback from the medical community regarding Gemvision and the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses solution has been very positive, says a press release.

“You can describe a wound, but that is difficult. When someone looks at you, it helps enormously. When we really see something, it is much clearer what is going on with a person.” says Michiel Klitsie, a technical physician at Careaz homecare and user of the Gemvision/Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses solution. “As healthcare professionals, we are a major risk factor for transmitting the COVID19, in nursing homes for example, but we don’t have to be there when these glasses are used. You can also see more clients in less time.”

In addition to healthcare, Gemvision focuses on field service and industrial enterprise use cases by cutting onboarding times and improving equipment uptimes, getting the right information to the right place and offering live video, where there used to be just voice or text. With the Gemvision solution, an office employee can see what the engineer is seeing, through the Vuzix smart glasses.

“The Gemvision remote wound care solution centered around the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses not only allows for more efficient use of the health specialist’s time, but it also frees the patients from long and often painful visits to the hospital.  Since the COVID-19 pandemic began we have experienced a surge in inbound digital health requests and adoption across healthcare is now scaling up nationwide,” stated Mark Smit, CEO and Founder of Gemvision.
