Optimec VFC

Jam Sandwich 2019

A true user centric product that has a real health benefit.

The VFS aids eye testing and assists in the observation and eye measurement. It grabs the attention of the patient whilst simultaneously allowing the clinician to take the measurements they need. Particularly useful for young children, patients with a learning disability and patients with dementia.

The clinician can look directly at the patient whilst their attention is focused on the screen of a mobile phone temporarily housed in the unit. The image is cleverly reflected with the use of mirrors and two way glass. A range of attachments to the base VFS unit provides for other clinical measurements to also be undertaken.

All credit to Simon Berry’s brainchild the VFS was initially developed with Durham University and although still in initial field trills, has attracted a lot of publicity most notably featured on BBC look North, please have a look.
