Vuzix Receives Continuing Smart Glasses Follow on Orders from 1Minuut Innovation in Response to COVID-19 Healthcare Needs in the Netherlands


ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced the Company has recently received multiple follow-on orders for M400 Smart Glasses from Dutch medical services company, 1Minuut Innovation.  The latest orders from 1Minuut Innovation are for immediate delivery to elderly care organizations to meet urgent COVID-19 remote healthcare needs in the Netherlands. 

1Minuut's main focus is to deliver highly secured video streaming and recording through their Genzõ mobile software platform.  Genzõ facilitates an easy-to-use, safe and mobile communications platform to chat or video call using Vuzix Smart Glasses, helping to deliver medical expertise across multiple use cases in healthcare including patient monitoring, wound care and training. The shared Point of View (PoV) of the care practitioner wearing the Vuzix Smart Glasses makes it easy for external highly skilled colleagues to give help. 

"The current COVID-19 situation presents challenges when it comes to staffing health care because of the high number of infected employees. We are able to guide students remotely with smart glasses through the people who are in quarantine at home, while keeping others safe and out of harm's way. In this way, we relieve the burden and challenge at the physical locations and make employees who are at home more productive," commented Martijn de Groot, CEO and Co-Founder of 1Minuut Innovation.

The care practitioner has their hands free all the time while receiving visual and voice expert feedback on their Vuzix Smart Glasses. Using AR overlays, Genzõ makes it easy to point to a certain area on the live video screen or give textual feedback. Integration of medical company policies and protocols while sending telemedicine sessions on the smart glasses is also possible with Genzõ.  Genzõ uses 'HIPAA compliant equivalent' EU-based GDPR-compliant software (ISO27001 and NEN7510) to share (push and pull) medical data safely to and from patient files.

"1Minuut is trailblazing within the health care industry through the creation and evolution of their Genzõ mobile platform and now with our M400 Smart Glasses, to deliver new telemedicine experiences that improve both the quality and speed of patient care," said Pal Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer. "Vuzix looks forward to supporting 1Minuut's efforts as they continue to roll out their Vuzix Smart Glasses-based solution across the Dutch health care industry and positively impact the care of patients in need."
