BioSig Deploys Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses to Offer Remote Servicing Capabilities in Compliance with COVID-19 Travel Restrictions
Industry-leading smart glasses technology expected to enhance the utility of BioSig’s PURE EP™ System signal processing platform. Remote servicing intended to enable continued installations, upgrades, and training during COVID-19 travel restrictions and lockdown limitations.
Westport, CT, Jan. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM) (“BioSig” or the “Company”), a medical technology company commercializing an innovative signal processing platform designed to improve signal fidelity and uncover the full range of ECG and intra-cardiac signals, today announced a partnership with Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), a leading supplier of smart glasses and augmented reality (AR) technology and products. BioSig will deploy Vuzix’s M400 Smart Glasses for remote servicing of its PURE EP™ System, supporting the planned nationwide rollout of BioSig’s novel real-time signal processing platform to the large and growing electrophysiology market in the U.S. The remote servicing support offers an ideal solution for compliance with COVID-19 travel restrictions.
“We are thrilled to work with Vuzix to deploy its outstanding smart glasses solution and enhance our technology offering as we work to accelerate commercialization of our PURE EP™ System nationwide,” said Kenneth L. Londoner, Chairman & CEO of BioSig Technologies, Inc. “The Vuzix M400s are the powerful enterprise smart glasses and have compelling clinical applications for digital healthcare. The addition of AR technology to our PURE EP™ System solution should give us an even greater opportunity to elevate the standard of care in the electrophysiology market.”
The Vuzix M400 is the next evolution of the industry-leading Vuzix M-Series smart glasses, featuring the new Qualcomm® Snapdragon(TM) XR1 platform. Vuzix was hand-selected as one of the initial launch partners for the new Snapdragon XR1 platform, the first purposely built, dedicated XR platform from Qualcomm Technologies. The Snapdragon XR1 microprocessor enables a combination of voice and touchpad navigation for complete control over the device. The M400 Smart Glasses improve processes within many applications such as warehouse logistics, telemedicine, manufacturing, and field service.
Equipped with Vuzix Remote Assist (VRA) software, the M400 Smart Glasses should provide BioSig’s partner physicians and clinicians with quick remote access to technical experts who can assist with servicing the unique hardware architecture and digital modality of PURE EP™ Systems being utilized in the field. Enterprise use of the M400 Smart Glasses is intended to enable technicians to support BioSig’s systems without the necessity of on-site visits, dramatically decreasing time and expense for both the Company and PURE EP™ System users.
BioSig plans to explore whether Vuzix Smart Glasses may be used to facilitate remote customer training and provide line-of-sight visualization of intracardiac signals during ablation procedures performed by physicians. In the healthcare industry, Vuzix Smart Glasses are already being used in hospitals and medical centers around the world to perform a wide range of functions, including training, virtual rounds within ICUs, triage in the emergency room and the operating room to guide physicians during surgery, and to provide remote training and mentor remote doctors.
"BioSig’ PURE EP™ System is an incredibly innovative solution that is tackling a tough problem, and we are proud to support this promising product," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vuzix. “Vuzix has deep experience working with medical and healthcare providers to support applications that have ranged from performing surgeries to telemedicine, patient care, training, remote learning, and much more. We are happy to broaden our support of the healthcare industry by entering the medical device market, particularly the rapidly growing field of bioelectronic medicine.”
