EHSAM project

The EHSAM project  (Eye Health Sensing and Management) aims to develop a diagnostic and monitoring ocular platform to measure selected biomarkers to safeguard eye’s health.

In particular the initiative aims, through an innovative intra-ocular pressure (IOP) monitoring system, to revolutionize the management of glaucoma. The home based monitoring system under development is characterized by:

  • True continuous patients monitoring in normal life conditions
  • Accurate, precise and direct intra-ocular pressure (IOP) measurements
    • Circadian variation
    • Cardiac ocular pulse
  • Compliance check system
  • Patient assistance in their daily treatment
  • Inline therapy optimization opportunity
  • Enhancement of physician’s control and understanding on important retinal disorders (e.g. diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration and central retinal vein occlusion)
  • Very few handling after device implantation
  • System is user friendly also for the elderly population
