ABOUT PIXIUM VISION
Vision: to create a world of bionic vision for those who have lost their sight.
Mission: To provide best in class bionic vision restoration systems enabling the blind to regain greater autonomy and improved quality of daily living.
With the implantation of Bionic Vision Restoration Systems (VRS) medical device, the blindness will be treated and the blind patient will be able to see again.
This Bionic VRS are built around three components:
The technologies currently focus on the disorders resulting from degeneration of photoreceptors.
These signals are then sent to the cells forming the inner retina, where they undergo spatial and temporal processing before being transmitted to the ganglion cells located on the surface of the retina and whose axons form the optic nerve.
Lastly, the optic nerve transports the final signal to the visual cortex deep in the brain.
This degeneration of photoreceptors leaves the other retina cells, whether ganglion cells or the inner retina, remain functional. When these inner retinal cells are electrically stimulated, a visual stimulus can still be transmitted to the brain.
The objective of this advanced (VRS) is to enable patients to identify and pick up a cup, shake hands and recognize certain objects such as a plate, a table, a door or a chair in black and white.
