OUR HEALTH IS THE MOST PRECIOUS THING IN THE WORLD.
USING NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO PREVENT POTENTIAL RISKS AND IMPROVE PEOPLE’S HEALTH AND WELL-BEING IS THE MOST PROMISING APPLICATION there can be.
We believe in the human race and we want to help our peers. Thanks to new technologies, our health can be monitored and our well-being increased. This is our job!
Supported by the Scientific Community
We build our solution based on scientific facts and analysis. Our research team and partner laboratories provide the core reliability of our solutions.
Because we want the best for our clients, we keep an ear open to criticism and remain agile. At the end of the day, what matters to us is to deliver the best!
Our innovations have been developed in partnership with the scientific community. In a quality approach, we have called upon many recognized scientific institutions such as INRIA for the mathematical algorithms, the LEAT of Sophia Antipolis for the electronic problems, the LAMHESS of Nice for the reliability and repeatability tests of the sensors and the analysis of the biomechanical movements, the Hôtel Dieu Hospital in Paris for the studies relating to the sleep and the observation of the blinking of the eyes…
THE CONSTANT RESEARCH OF WELL-BEING
AVIVA/ Fall prevention
For five years now, the Aviva Factory has been supporting project leaders in the fields of health, the environment, inclusion and employment. Since its creation, more than 200 winners throughout France have received financial assistance (1 million euros per edition). Ellcie Healthy is one of the finalists of the 5th edition of La Fabrique Aviva, more than 1,400 projects were initially submitted. The Lyon-based jury, which was deliberating for the “South Centre East” zone (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and PACA), awarded Ellcie Healthy the highest score for its Serenity Eyewear frames, thus giving it a €60,000 prize.
MAIF/ Fall prevention
Ellcie Healthy and its partner, LAMHESS (Laboratoire Motricité Humaine Expertise Sport Santé EA 6312, Université Côte d’Azur) have been selected by the MAIF Foundation to develop the project of glasses equipped with Artificial Intelligence aimed at detecting and preventing falls among the elderly.
En In constant search for well-being Ellcie Healthy is partnering with the CarceptPrev Foundation to work on the problem of musculoskeletal disorders in the professional environment, and particularly in the transportation industry!
MSDs are the 1st cause of workplace accidents, and affect 73% of employees in the road transport sector. We conducted a pre-study demonstrating that the prevention of these MSD risks is both possible, measurable and classifiable, using Ellcie Healthy connected eyewear technology.
DGA/ Man Machine Teaming
Ellcie Healthy has been selected by Thales and Dassault who are leading the MMT (Man Machine Teaming) project call for the DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement). The ‘Capturing the Gaze’ project aims to study the integration of a photo-oculography system into a helmet-mounted sight. One of the main challenges of the project is to increase the accuracy of the tracking of the gaze direction while respecting the constraints of embarkability (miniaturization), compatibility with other equipment of the operator and robustness.
The ARTEFACT project led by our Research Director Dr. Andrea Castagnetti in collaboration with Prof. Benoit Miramond of the LEAT Laboratory aims to develop a system to accompany visually impaired people in order to give them back their autonomy through sensory supplementation glasses. A 3D camera embedded in the frame sends information about the visual environment to a connected bracelet. The integrated Artificial Intelligence ‘analyzes’ the transmitted image and retranscribes it to the visually impaired person through a stimulus at the wrist level. If the visually impaired person does not see his environment and the obstacles around him, he now feels it thanks to this device.
UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL OF DRESDEN/ RESEARCH
We have been asked by the University Hospital of Dresden in Germany to collaborate in a research study on neurodegenerative diseases and more particularly on Parkinson’s disease. The objective of this study is to develop tools to analyze the constitutive markers of the motor state of patients in order to detect recurrent symptoms of the disease and to adapt the therapy accordingly. The frequency of eye blinks, which seems to be reduced in case of low mobility is part of the marker data that could be recovered and analyzed by our connected glasses.
