The GiveVision team uses digital and augmented reality to improve the residual vision of the visually impaired and make information more accessible.
In 4 years, in England, they developed a first device, SightPlus, to help people with advanced vision problems such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
SightPlus is a portable headset that can be used to widen objects that are close or at varying distances, to adjust contrast or to use filters that can be customized according to user needs.
This kit is a CE medical device which will be launched in other European countries.
The team is also preparing a new prototype with the aim of miniaturizing its existing shape and facilitating user mobility.
