SightPlus is CE marked and the team implemented a kick-ass quality management system to ensure the constant improvement of our work.
After a pilot comparing the visual acuity and contrast sensitivity of a group of testers with and without SightPlus, it is reported that on average those testers can see more on the charts.
*4* #Clinical evidence
We have commenced a full clinical device study with Moorfields eye hospital, expecting 60 participants by March 2019 and publication of results in the middle of 2019. This will provide peer-reviewed evidence for clinicians and decision makers and offer further evidence as the improvements in visual function with SightPlus. The study is even included in the NIHR portfolio.
One of our users passed her GCSEs thanks to SightPlus, another used it to follow her grandson's wedding, another one read his medicine prescription for the first time in 8 years. So many great stories that motivate us to do better every day!
*6* #Testersengagement This year, 60 new testers have joined our pipeline of testers to support the development of our new prototype. On average, our super users take less than a day to confirm their involvement in our R&D projects. #dedication [a quote of user supporting R&D]
This year, we partnered with Professional Vision Services to reach more people, as they have 30 years experience in equipping people with low vision aids and offer home visits.
A new member has joined the team, adding more expertise in hardware and engineering.
Working with hardware experts was a crucial step for us to develop a new prototype. We started working with an industrial partner that combines years of experience in wearables and optics.
France will be the next market for us. We have good news to share in 2019.
