STOCKHOLM & PRUTTING, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tobii Technology, the world leader in eye tracking, announced today that its partner ESINOMED GmbH, a leading provider of display solutions for medical and industrial uses, is launching EyeSeeMed, the world’s first eye-tracking solution that integrates with hospital PACS systems to give surgeons hands-free access to imaging and patient data in sterile surgical environments. The EyeSeeMed solution will be shown for the first time at MEDICA, Nov. 12-15, in Dusseldorf at the HT Labor + Hospitaltechnik AG booth (#13D39).
“Tobii is extremely excited to be a part of this historical advancement in the medical industry,” said Oscar Werner, vice president of Tobii OEM Solutions. “The EyeSeeMed solution will empower surgeons with hands-free access to critical and time-sensitive data in the operating room by allowing them to simply use their natural eye gaze. This will reduce the complex interactions between the medical imaging instruments and the surgeon, hence making the process much more efficient and safe.”
With the EyeSeeMed solution, by using only their eyes, doctors will now have an unprecedented level of flexibility and independence to access and process pre- and intraoperative imaging and medical data.
“At last, the operating doctor can finally call up and process the relevant data and information during an operation himself, without having to leave the sterile environment or be dependent upon additional assistant personnel,” said Peter Spagl, CEO of ESINOMED GmbH.
Tobii is not new to the medical arena. In 2012, the company announced its partnership with i2Eye Diagnostics, developing a portable, patient-friendly eye-tracking solution called Saccadic Vector Optokinetic Perimetry (SVOP), which assists clinicians in the diagnosis of ophthalmic and neurological conditions.
