Weaps

Weaps is a 3D-compatible head-mounted display that can easily show endoscopic surgery images with as little discomfort as regular eyeglasses. The special display has original settings tailored to individual wearers, which makes them easy to wear and reduces impediments. Rather than covering the entire eye, the viewer is designed to look like a magnifying glass. The world you see through Weaps is the same as that of an endoscopic surgery. If you look away from the viewer, you can hand over devices and otherwise act as you would without the display. It is a head-mounted display for medical use, made by a genuine medical device manufacturer.

Patent pending for “Eyeglass-mounted image display device and image system”
Application Number:2017-232540

The positioning of the IC tag is registered along with an ID number using an app. During operation, the IC tag can be detected on the lung surface using a surgical antenna, and this can help surgeons to determine the extent of resection.
