Virtual reality: Eyesoft launches a medical device for opticians

Eyesoft has developed a new medical device dedicated to opticians: EMAA Check. Based on immersive virtual reality and monitoring eye movements by eye tracking, it now offers an unprecedented solution dedicated to the active prevention of oculomotor disorders.

Bordeaux startup Eyesoft is building a solid position in the field of e-health and vision by offering innovative offerings. Her desire is to improve the way of care and patient care among all visual health players: ophthalmologists, orthoptists and opticians.

Present since 2021 with orthoptists, Eyesoft has enabled the rehabilitation of more than 20,000 patients with its EMAA Pro solution equipping 240 practitioners in France. A more than promising result for the startup. Aware of the great interest that represent its technologies for the entire visual health sectorEyesoft has taken advantage of its experience and launched surveys and consultations that have identified opticians among health professionals who are best suited to participate in the active prevention of oculomotor disorders.

A tool to educate patients through virtual reality

At Eyesoft, we are always looking for new solutions to improve the care pathway for people with oculomotor disorders. In our daily practice as orthoptists, we have seen our patients consult late and this observation has been confirmed by our colleagues. However, this late identification is detrimental to optimal management. Today with EMAA Check, we are enthusiastic about the idea of ​​integrating opticians upstream, in this active prevention with patients. ”, explains Audrey Persillon, founder and general manager of Eyesoft. The Bordeaux start is particularly supported by Unitec.

Check EMAA for active prevention in optical shops

The EMAA Check solution is designed specifically for opticians. It allows them to complement their service offer in optical shops by raising customer awareness of oculomotor disorders, thus facilitating their early identification. EMAA Check, with its fun interface, offers a comprehensive experience that allows you to perform 4 predefined eye and vision tests in less than 5 minutes.

After the assessments, the optician can generate with one click a report in PDF format including a personalized report to entrust to his clients. If necessary, he can advise and guide them for early treatment.

Like other Eyesoft solutions, EMAA Check comes in the form of 3D software embedded in a virtual reality headset equipped with an eye tracker. The practitioner interface on the computer allows for client management, generating results in the form of a personalized report and recording client files securely.
