– More customers moving from “proof of concept” to full deployments.
ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced that the Company has received an initial deployment order totaling approximately $250,000 for Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses from a healthcare and surgical training solutions provider. This initial deployment order is for immediate delivery with the potential for subsequent deployment orders in the future as this customer expands its use of Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses, which will be used in operating rooms to enable medtech experts, assisting surgeons, medical students, and other healthcare professionals to see and communicate with surgeons in real-time.
The healthcare industry continues to be an early adopter of smart glasses to deliver a variety of benefits in and outside of the operating room. Over the last year, hundreds of surgeries were performed using Vuzix Smart Glasses and thousands of remote calls made to provide a virtual presence within hospitals and senior care facilities that were video broadcast securely via Vuzix M400 and M4000 Smart Glasses to provide virtual training, health care for patients in the ICU and the operating room, and to perform virtual patient rounds.
“We continue to see an increasing number of end customers moving from proof of concept to full deployments with Vuzix industry leading M400 Smart Glasses. In this case they are deploying within the healthcare market vertical to support surgical training, patient care, virtual rounds and the likes,” said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix.
