Cameras and screens have been used to augment surgeons’ vision for years, enabling them to see magnified surgical sites for greater precision. But as helpful as on-screen technology can be, it can also be challenging ergonomically, as surgeons struggle to operate comfortably while moving around to look at the screens. Enter HMDmd. CEO John R Lyon and Senior Vice President Allen Newman worked closely with surgeons to develop a medical-grade head-mounted wearable display that uses 3D and high-resolution OLEDs to improve visualization and ergonomics for surgeons during surgery. Join John and Allen as they briefly go over their development journey, clinical utilization, and live demo.
