SonoEyes

SonoEyes is a Mixed Reality imaging solution that integrates with Microsoft’s HoloLens head-mounted display and any imaging system with a video output. SonoEyes allows clinicians to view an ultrasound image in an optimized location during a procedure through Mixed Reality.

Ergonomic Virtual Screen

SonoEyes displays the ultrasound image where you need it. Together with the head-mounted HoloLens 2 display, SonoEyes allows clinicians to view and position the holographic image at the optimal location. The screen follows head movements and ensures that hands are free for the patient.

Hands-free, Easy-to-use and Intuitive

No keyboard or other input devices are required; SonoEyes is controlled touch free with voice commands and hand gestures. The clinician’s hands remain sterile, the patient is under control and the image (e.g. ultrasound) is easier to assess than ever.

Across many medical specializations and levels of training, from medical student to professor, SonoEyes improves spatial orientation with better hand-eye coordination.

The Future of Mixed Reality Imaging

SonoEyes vision for clinicians: the image is anchored near the intervention site when doing infiltrations, biopsies, guiding a needle and doing other procedures.
The patient’s movements can be taken into account and spatial orientation is immediate.

"Incremed SonoEyes convinced me completely. Since we started using the holographic screen in our hospital, interventions have become safer and faster."

"SonoEyes brings clear added value in anesthesia. We can work faster and in a more focused manner with the system and no longer need to compromise on screen position. It is also extremely helpful in training sonographic techniques."

"SonoEyes allows pain therapy interventions, especially on the spine, to be performed much more ergonomically and effectively. One is independent of the position of the ultrasound unit, which allows greater flexibility. In the OR, training in ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia can be taken to a new level."

Senior Physician for Anaesthesiology, Intensive Care Medicine, Pain Therapy and Palliative Medicine at the Sana Kliniken. Instructor Level 3 at DEGUM (Anesthesiology)
"SonoEyes has proven extremely useful in situations where the need for a venous or arterial catheter arises spontaneously during a surgery. Since gesture and voice controls are touch-free, there is less risk for contamination. Furthermore, SonoEyes enables me to perform image-guided interventions even when the ultrasound device is not in my direct line of sight – a great advantage in situations with limited space."

Angiology

Vascular diseases and blood disorders are very common, especially in elderly patients. Angiology focuses on preventing severe events like heart attacks and stroke. For diagnoses and treatments, imaging techniques like ultrasound and x-ray are used. Combining various devices leads to space and time restrictions. This is when SonoEyes comes into play: optimal placement of the holographic screen supports the clinician in their work on the patient.

Radiology

Interventional radiology uses medical imaging guidance to perform various minimal-invasive procedures on patients. However, the screens showing the relevant anatomy can rarely be positioned optimally for the clinician. SonoEyes aligns a holographic screen with the intervention site, allowing the physicians to keep their hands and patient in line of sight. This saves valuable space and improves ergonomics, making interventions faster and safer.

Anesthesia

Taking care of patients before, during, and after surgery: Anesthesiologists deal with situations where imaging devices play a major role. Crammed operation rooms are a common obstacle and SonoEyes enables optimal screen positioning, even with limited space. In pain management, ultrasound guided nerve blocks can easily be done with SonoEyes. Compatibility with every imaging device helps the clinician to adapt to challenging situations.
