eSight launches assistive device to help visually impaired people retain independence at home
Vision-enhancement specialist eSight has launched a new assistive technology innovation that is designed to heighten visual clarity and expand the wearer’s field of view to help users gain independence in their everyday life.
eSight Go is a lightweight wearable device for people with vision loss or those who are blind.
The assistive technology is designed for 100 per cent mobility retention, allowing people to use the technology while at school, work, home, and enjoying time with friends and family.
Roland Mattern, eSight Director of Product Marketing, commented: “We’ve spent the past year vastly improving the capacity and design of our digital eyewear, not only to help enhance vision for our visually impaired users, but so they can enjoy an enriched and fulfilling livelihood in the most seamless way possible.
“We gathered feedback from our eSight 4 users and coaches to thoughtfully craft the best device possible that is sleek, lightweight and comfortable for everyday use. We look forward to connecting with qualified candidates and changing lives for those living with central vision loss.”
Used by thousands of people across the globe with over 20 different eye conditions, eSight devices use a combination of hardware and software to enhance vision through a nimble, wearable design that does not restrict a wearer’s full periphery.
Comparable to eSight 4, eSight Go utilises best-match camera and lens technology to project a superior image onto two high-resolution screens for full binocular vision. eSight Go users can personalise colour and contrast settings on the internal-facing OLED screens.
A wider field of view (45 degrees) incorporates a user’s natural peripheral capacity to amplify existing vision for extra mobility.
New features also include improved software with simplified navigation and image stabilization and 12 megapixel camera with full HD OLED monitors to provide users with the clearest picture possible. A comfortable neck battery pack also redistributes 170 grams across the neck
eSight recently offered a preview of the eSight Go at CES 2023, an influential annual event hosted by the Consumer Technology Association which took place in Las Vegas last week. The product will be available to buy in the final quarter of 2023.https://thiis.co.uk/esight-launches-assistive-device-to-help-visually-impaired-people-retain-independence-at-home/https://thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/eSightGo-Lifestyle-Shot1.jpghttps://thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/eSightGo-Lifestyle-Shot1-150x150.jpgNewsroomSupplier NewsTrade Newsassistive,CES,device,eSight,independence,technologyVision-enhancement specialist eSight has launched a new assistive technology innovation that is designed to heighten visual clarity and expand the wearer’s field of view to help users gain independence in their everyday life. eSight Go is a lightweight wearable device for people with vision loss or those who are blind.
