ABEYE STARTUP SHOWCASES ITS SUCCESSFUL INNOVATIONS LEXILENS® AND SPECTALERT® AT SILMO FAIR
LEXILENS are the first electronic spectacles helping dyslexics to overcome reading difficulties. How do LEXILENS work ? In most people, one eye is dominant over the other. You realize this because to aim with accuracy, you close one eye to keep only the dominant eye open. Two French researchers at the University of Rennes discovered very recently that people with dyslexia usually do not have a dominant eye. Their scientific discovery received an award from the French National Medical Academy. Both eyes transmit primary images and mirror images of the same quality to the brain. Unable to sort, the brain merges the two images. The dyslexic reader therefore sees badly detached letters, mirrored letters (like b instead of d), words that overlap, leading to a greater effort of deciphering. LEXILENS®, the electronic spectacles neutralize the mirror image. How effective are LEXILENS ? More that 2000 dyslexics purchased LEXILENS across 15 countries. Initial tests and wearers’ feedbacks show 96% of satisfaction and recommandations. Wearers express greater ease of reading, the letters stand out better, as well as the lines, the contrasts are also improved. Some testify a real pleasure to read, they gained confidence and improved relations within their environment.
Falling down is the #1 mortality cause for 65+ aged people with 12000+ deaths yearly in France only. Aging population creates a demand for solutions to stay home safe even when relatives live remotely and where people are losing autonomy. This societal challenge is what Abeye addresses with the Spectalert® eye glasses. Spectalert® key differentiators: Spectalert® is simple to use: there is no on/off switch. It has a physical alert button on the right temple to allow for seniors to request help for any urgent matter. Spectalert®is effective: it runs a state-of-the-art algorithm allowing to detect both hard falls and most soft falls. Its detection rate outperforms current market devices. Spectalert® is elegant: it was designed for Senior with a non-stigmatizing form factor for easier adoption by users. It also uses a proprietary temple designed to fit most heads with no adjustment need. Spectaler® currently connects to telecare gateways and coming version will connect to smartphones to accommodate with mobility needs. Spectalert® is developed in collaboration with several partners, among which Adveez, a French startup. Spectalert® was launched in France by Abeye’s partner Atol under the name AtolZen in partnership with Telecare company Bluelinea.
