Evena Eyes-On Glasses Cath Lab Hybrid OR Vascular Access

March 3, 2014 — Evena Medical, a developer of high-definition imaging for precision venous access, announced an agreement with a major distribution partner to distribute its products in 15 countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Evena also received a $5 million tranche of the company’s planned $15 million Series B financing. Evena featured its Eyes-On Glasses at HIMSS14 in Orlando, Fla.

Evena Eyes-On Glasses is a sophisticated wearable computing platform for vascular imaging and informatics convergence. Its multi-spectral imaging technology is combined with powerful connectivity and computing capability for interface with hospital electronic patient record systems, and remote information sharing of images and other patient data (clinical informatics convergence). The device is also a dual imaging modality system for vascular access. It combines multi-spectral light-based technology for imaging most peripheral veins, with DeepVu ultrasound for visualizing those veins deeper beneath the skin. 

The distribution agreement expands Eyes-On Glasses to a total 22 countries. The product features a design that incorporates multi-spectral 3-D imaging and wireless connectivity. Evena’s point-of-care Eyes-On system is a vein detection device to deliver clear, anatomically accurate, real-time imaging in a wearable, easy-to-use, hands-free and cart-free system. The Eyes-On system utilizes the Epson Moverio “smart glasses” technology platform and its unique “look-through” capabilities to offer healthcare applications of smart glasses commercially available on a global scale.

Evena’s Eyes-On Glasses include digital storage to enable easy verification and documentation of vein patency throughout a patient’s stay in the hospital, and telemedicine capability to share images remotely. The system also interfaces with hospital electronic medical records systems for seamless documentation.
