Our Innovation of the Month is coming from Implandata Ophthalmic Products GmbH (IOP) which is a digital health company, based in Hannover (Germany). IOP is addressing a vastly underserved area in the care of glaucoma patients via innovative technologies and products.
Their eyemate® system consists of a permanent implantable and biocompatible microsensor, responsible for intraocular pressure measurements. The microsensor is powered and read out by an external hand-held device. The operation of this patient hand-held device is simple and reliable. The data will then be transmitted via a wireless data connection to a secure internet-based database. Thus, the eye doctor can monitor the therapeutic response and adjust therapy early on, in case of elevated intraocular pressure, avoiding further loss of vision. The eyemate® smartphone app will provide helpful information about the disease status and the therapy success to the patient and a medication schedule can be established, which reminds the patient automatically when he/she has to apply his/her glaucoma medication.
Implandata Ophthalmic Products GmbH has a team of very experienced and highly motivated experts in their field and is supported by seasoned investors and renowned clinical and scientific advisors. They collaborate with prestigious institutes in order to present the most advanced and utile products to patients and the medical community.
