About eSight

eSight creates electronic glasses that restore or enhance sight for individuals living with vision loss. Worn comfortably like a normal pair of glasses or with prescription lenses built-in, they allow a person with low vision to see in virtually the same manner as someone who is fully-sighted can. The company's SPEX enhances vision for precision tasks, allowing users to pan and zoom the real world or streamed images, and brings critical information to the point of task without overwriting or obstructing natural vision for full situational awareness and mobility.

eSight Announces Newest Generation of Assistive Device for the Legally Blind, eSight Go

Jan 3, 2023

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA TORONTO, Jan. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading vision-enhancement platform, eSight , today announces the launch of its latest innovation in assistive technology, eSight Go . The wearable device sets a new standard for enhanced vision technology through its heightened visual clarity, lightweight design and expansive field of view, helping those with central vision loss gain independence in their everyday life. “We’ve spent the past year vastly improving the capacity and design of our digital eyewear, not only to help enhance vision for our visually impaired users, but so they can enjoy an enriched and fulfilling livelihood in the most seamless way possible,” said eSight Director of Product Marketing Roland Mattern. “We gathered feedback from our eSight 4 users and coaches to thoughtfully craft the best device possible that is sleek, lightweight and comfortable for everyday use. We look forward to connecting with qualified candidates and changing lives for those living with central vision loss.” Used by thousands of people across the globe with over 20 different eye conditions, eSight devices use a combination of hardware and software to enhance vision through a nimble, wearable design that does not restrict a wearer’s full periphery. eSight Go is designed for 100 percent mobility retention, allowing people to use the technology while at school, work, home and enjoying time with friends and family. Comparable to eSight 4, eSight Go utilizes best-match camera and lens technology to project a superior image onto two high resolution screens for full binocular vision. eSight Go users can personalize adjustable color and contrast settings on the internal-facing OLED screens. A wider field of view (45 degrees) incorporates a user’s natural peripheral capacity to amplify existing vision for unmatched mobility. New features also include: Improved software with simplified navigation and image stabilization Higher quality camera with 12-megapixel resolution and 4k capability and full HD OLED monitors to provide users with the clearest picture possible Comfortable neck battery pack that redistributes 170 grams across the neck eSight will preview eSight Go at CES 2023 and it will be available on the market starting in Q4 2023. The device will be on display at the Gentex booth (#6341) from January 5-8, 2023. For downloadable images, videos, tech spec sheets and more, please visit here .

Kjaya is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Semi-Autonomous Adaptive Neural and Genetic Segmentation of Medical Images. Their Phase I project will implement a physician-assisted, real-time adaptive system for the segmentation of anatomical structures in 3D medical image data. Medical image segmentation seeks to change the representation of an anatomical structure, making it more easily analyzed. Because of the extreme variability of these structures in biological systems, current idiosyncratic manual methods currently in use are tedious, time consuming, and error prone. Image segmentation cannot in general be programmatically solved. The proposed system is a Neural Network (NN) based adaptation of the individual data using parallel Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and coupled with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based adaptation across GPU cores. The system will build a diagnostically useful segmentation of the anatomical feature within seconds from an area of interest outlined by a physician using a Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. Fast growth in medical imaging overwhelms available diagnosticians. An intuitive and inexpensive system to quickly and accurately deliver diagnostic relevant segmentation of medical images offers tremendous commercial value. Currently, each scan requires approximately 50 minutes of manual preparation. The diagnosis and treatment of an estimated 20 percent of diseases benefit from medical imaging. Newer scanning technologies have increased in resolution, but such techniques have not made segmenting easier or faster. The proposed method will enable more diagnostics to be done with the quality controlled directly by physicians.
