Leia Inc. and Infuse Medical announce partnership to bring Lightfield imagery to the field of medical education.


MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Leia Inc. and Infuse Medical have joined forces to revolutionize medical training and education with immersive 3D and 2D educational experiences.

Infuse, a specialized digital agency with its roots in medical education, serves med tech manufacturers with cutting-edge platform technologies, 3D animation, video, AR/VR and mobile applications that accelerate the transfer of knowledge in clinical settings across the world.

By partnering with Leia, their clients not only have access to Infuse's custom interactive eLearning content for aesthetics, coronary, spine, neuro, orthopedics, imaging, laboratory and capital equipment applications – but also the tools to make these educational lessons powerful, portable and immersive via Leia's Lume Pad tablet. The Lume Pad, with a 10.8-inch display powered by the company's Lightfield technology, provides the means to deliver these immersive lessons in stunning 3D and 2D without the need for head-mounted virtual glasses or clunky equipment.

"We've anticipated the next mobile break-through since the introduction of the iPad over a decade ago," says Jordan Erickson, Partner – New Business Development at Infuse. "We're thrilled to have our best-in-industry content and learning applications now deployed on Lume Pad. We anticipate spatial memory to dramatically increase with our services combined with Leia's Lightfield technology."  

Leia, a leader in Lightfield display hardware and content services based in Silicon Valley, levrages simultaneous breakthroughs in nano-optical design, nano-manufacturing and intelligent software to create the future of digital interactions. Their Lightfield technology opens the door to interactive learning and establishes an emotional bond between the viewer and the digital world with fully interactive images that display depth, a sense of material, and real ambient light effects.



In addition, a simple plug-in allows all content created within the Unity platform, packaged with the offerings from Infuse, easily display on the Lume Pad, and take advantage of everything that the Lightfield technology has to offer. Educators and students can also switch between a 2D and 3D display at any time with no interruption to their existing workflow, which helps to create an in-depth and seamless learning experience.

"We're always looking for the very best 3D content to highlight on our screens," says David Fattal, Leia's co-founder and CEO. "Through this partnership with Infuse Medical we are poised to revolutionize the training experience for many medical device companies, a very exciting prospect!"
