The 'Eyer' from Phelcom Technologies is a cloud-connected ocular health solution that aims to decentralize eye care devices for those who live in remote communities or locations to make use of.
The smartphone-connected device works by performing retinal scans of the patient's eyes before uploading them to the cloud to be analyzed by ophthalmologists over the Internet. This decentralized functionality is achieved thanks to smartphone compatibility that will allow data to be uploaded from anywhere to help determine if further care is required for the patient.
The 'Eyer' from Phelcom Technologies is also focused on privacy and security by anonymizing all of the images that are uploaded to the database. Artificial intelligent (AI)-powered algorithms are then used to learn from the pictures to train the system to pinpoint issues for a more automated experience.
