Vuzix is talking up how its smart glasses are being used in several new healthcare applications. Notable use cases range from privacy measures such as blurring algorithms, which can selectively blur faces to maintain privacy and confidentiality, to the use of AI in wound care for precise calculation of the wound surface area. They are also aiding in identifying key organs on X-ray images.

TeleVU is an interesting company, and it has been in the AR for telemedicine, and healthcare business for a number of years. The company has been an advocate for smart glasses in medical applications because they offer several key benefits. As wearable devices, they provide a hands-free, non-obtrusive approach that allows for use in sterile fields. These head-mounted, non-bulky tools enable a focused field of vision, freedom of movement, and augmented reality capabilities without hindering the interaction between patient and clinician.

Their easy operation and familiar operating system help in improving task concentration, supporting multitasking, and enhancing spatial awareness. They offer direct field of vision, as opposed to handheld devices, and are easy to learn. Additionally, they facilitate seamless digital documentation, including audio dictation and filing of videos or photos. This interactivity allows clinicians to devote more time to patients, reducing the need to look at smartphones or computers, thereby improving overall patient care.
