Patent issued in Australia for eyeTelehealth product
Ingeneus CEO, Richard Walmsley is pleased to announce that Ingeneus has been issued with an Australian Patent for the eyeConnect device. The eyeConnect forms part of the eyeTelehealth Platform and is a remote telehealth eye assessment system.
"This is great acknowledgement that the eyeConnect is novel, new technology and is first of kind in the Australian market as Patents are only issued on the basis of novelty", Mr Walmsley said.
"This is a great step for the Company and means we can continue in the Australian market with confidence. This adds to our US Patent for the eyeConnect device in the US and Chinese Patent for the eyePressure device in China”, he said.
The eyeTelehealth Platform fulfils a global need by providing a platform that allows minimally trained operators in Primary Healthcare settings such as Emergency Departments or a screening setting to capture critical data about a patient's eye and then via the eyeTelehealth solution transmit this data to a remote specialist for assessment.
The key products that form the eyeTelehealth Platform are:
• eyeConnect - remote telehealth eye assessment system including: patient history, acuity test information, intra-ocular pressure assessment and high resolution photographs
• eyePressure - disposable eye pressure assessment device, and
• eyeTelecloud - cloud environment that allows authorised personnel to access, view and report on patient data from eyeConnect systems.
