NuEyes Technologies Inc. and Genesis Rehab Services Collaborate to Provide Low-Vision Patients With Training and Occupational Therapy

NuEyes Technologies Inc. (NuEyes), the global leader providing smartglass technology for individuals with low vision, and Genesis Rehab Services (GRS), a leading provider of physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapy, announced today a partnership to deliver best-in-class training for those clients needing skilled therapy services and clinical support for individuals purchasing NuEyes glasses.

As part of this first-of-its-kind program, NuEyes will provide support and training for its smartglass clients. Each new NuEyes client will receive two complimentary sessions with a NuEyes support trainer who will help them utilize their NuEyes smartglasses in the most effective way. NuEyes glasses have been used by countless individuals – young and old – to augment limited vision, allowing people to go back to work, continue their education and see their loved ones clearly for the first time in years. The NuEyes support training sessions will be used specifically to help the needs of individual clients as they learn to use NuEyes to enhance their lives. During the support training sessions, the client may show additional needs for skilled occupational therapy to integrate the NuEyes smartglasses into functional daily tasks.   With the partnership of Genesis Rehab – Vitality Rehabilitation, the clients can have access to the highest level of skilled occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech/language therapy in conjunction with a primary care physician’s involvement.

“We are very excited to deliver tailored support training and education to NuEyes customers and be partnering with Genesis and their Vitality to You program to deliver the skilled therapy care our clients would benefit from,” said Mark Greget, founder and CEO of NuEyes Technologies Inc. “Modern smartphone and tablet technologies have largely ignored the challenges faced by individuals with low vision. This partnership with Vitality ensures that each NuEyes customer has access to the best training to make them comfortable with the features and functions of our glasses as quickly as possible and integrate our smartglasses into their daily lives.”

“NuEyes is at the forefront of accessibility technology,” said Steve Burnt, occupational therapist and vice president of Vitality to You, a division of GRS.  “We are excited to partner with Mark and his team to give NuEyes customers the best experience possible as they explore how the technology can improve their everyday lives.”

NuEyes smartglasses are available from eye care professionals throughout the United States. Learn more at www.nueyes.com.
