Samsung partners on smart glasses for healthcare sector
AR headwear firm NuEyes has partnered with Samsung Healthcare to deliver a pair of smart glasses aimed at the healthcare sector to support training and patient care applications.
Weighing in at under -130g, the glasses come with a binocular HD display that connects to Samsung 5G mobile phones or tablets.
According to NuEyes, the smart glasses have been designed to act as a portable solution for common healthcare functions such as ultrasound imaging, remote medicine, on-the-job support, training in hospitals, universities, or out in the field.
In a statement the glasses manufacturer added that its alliance with the South Korean Electronics company’s healthcare division would “continue to advance the medical industry and bring the promise of the metaverse closer”.
NuEyes founder and CEO Mark Greget added: “We’re focused on delivering solutions that enhance patient care, whether that is through our low vision solutions or with a medical practitioner delivering care.
“Partnering with Samsung Healthcare allows us to expand our reach and deliver solutions that will help advance the medical industry and patient care.”
Samsung operates its own medical centre in native South Korea where it is currently innovating with a range of digital healthcare solutions designed to drive staff productivity and improve patient experience in hospitals, at home, and through virtual care.
Two years ago Samsung also formed a partnership with Korean telco provider KT to develop a 5G medical service as an initial step to establishing a 5G smart hospital.
Healthcare has also been identified as a key vertical for Magic Leap in terms of enterprise applications.
