IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) and Atheer announced today that they will unveil a prototype of the Root Iris display App using the Atheer AiR (Augmented interactive Reality) platform and AiR Glasses at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) annual conference. Demonstrations will be held at Masimo’s Booth 3437 at the San Diego Convention Center on October 24-28, 2015. The demonstrations will allow conference attendees to experience a prototype display and touch-free interactions powered by the Atheer AiR Glasses that, if cleared by the FDA, would provide clinicians with a novel display and interaction experience. Attendees will be invited to provide feedback on features, usability and requirements.
“This is the future of information display and interaction,” said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “What was once seen only in the movies is now on the way to becoming a reality. When combined with our Root Iris technology, AiR Glasses may in the future empower anesthesiologists to visualize data from multiple information sources and interact with the data using motion gestures while continuing to care for the patient.”
“We are delighted to partner with Masimo – one of the most innovative medical technology companies in the world. Our AiR smart glasses platform is known for its rich display as well as unique touch-free interaction using gestures, voice and head motion. Now both our companies are leveraging our strengths to develop a novel platform for the medical community,” said Alberto Torres, CEO of Atheer.
