Carrie Burgess and Neelam Hari, researchers for TOKU Eyes (refer to article “Developing AI for eye health”, August 2 Newsletter), travelled to Queenstown Research Week to the Medical Devices and Technology Conference on September 5–6. The conference program included a wide spectrum of presentations covering innovative research on medical technology undertaken by universities and companies from all around New Zealand.
They presented on the optical laser biometry (OLB) device they are currently working on, which aims to monitor early myopia in children. The presentations touched upon their successful animal trials and minor modifications and verifications to the device in preparation for clinical trials. Upon completing their presentations, they received excellent feedback from researchers and students.
