ThirdEye Gen partners with Dolphin Medical Imaging to bring mixed reality tech to healthcare
ThirdEye Gen partners with Dolphin Medical Imaging to bring mixed reality tech to healthcare. Initially the idea being the collaboration with Dolphin Medical is to use the device to make it easier for clinicians to find blood vessels for the placement of catheters.
The promise of mixed reality – which involves the merging of real and virtual worlds through a technological device – has led investors to pour billions into startups like Magic Leap and a major effort from Microsoft to develop their HoloLens product.
While the entertainment and gaming applications for the technology are clear, mixed reality has seen increasing use in industrial and enterprise settings.
Mixed reality glasses startup ThirdEye Gen is betting hard on the technology’s intersection with healthcare and has developed a partnership with handheld ultrasound company Dolphin Medical Imaging to bring their devices into the clinic.
