    New technologies transform IOP monitoring, digital health

     

    AcuMEMS

    AcuMEMS is developing two wireless devices to be implanted in the eye to directly measure and report continuous IOP. One device is designed and implanted during cataract surgery, the other implanted during glaucoma surgery. Pressure readings are downloaded using an app on a smart phone, then forwarded to the physician.

    The patient sees only whether the recorded pressure data are in or out of range. The physician gets a complete data readout and analysis.

    “We have the missing piece in glaucoma–continuous IOP,” said co-founder and CEO Doug Lee. “We have the best implementation of implantable wireless technology and we have coupled our technology with existing surgical procedures to provide strong alignment with the physician and with reimbursement.”

    Animal trials have been highly successful, Lee added. First in-human trials are in the planning stage.
