Occuity shortlisted for Health Technology Award at the IET Excellence and Innovation Awards

The trailblazing technology and innovation behind the AX1 Axiometer™ have catapulted Occuity into the spotlight, earning us a coveted spot as a finalist for the Health Technology Award at the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Excellence and Innovation Awards.

Due to launch in 2024, The AX1 Axiometer™ will be the world's first handheld, optical, non-contact meter, capable of measuring axial length quickly, easily and safely. The AX1 will provide optometrists with a superb solution for their need to accurately measure axial length – crucial for monitoring the effectiveness of myopia management therapies.

What makes the AX1 truly exceptional is Occuity's patented optical technology. It harnesses a focused beam of light to delicately scan the eye, collecting reflections from its various surfaces. In a matter of seconds, this device delivers a direct measurement, presenting results on the screen for immediate analysis.

The AX1 Axiometer™ brings a wealth of advantages to optometrists and patients alike. Its portability allows for effortless use in a range of settings, from routine eye care visits to schools and community groups. A standout feature is its non-contact measurement capability, eliminating the need for eye drops to prevent lens accommodation.

Occuity CEO, Dan Daly comments:

"We're excited to be a part of this prestigious event and look forward to continuing our mission of revolutionising healthcare through innovation. Whilst the winners are yet to be announced this recognition is a testament to our commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in healthcare."

The IET Excellence and Innovation Awards are a celebration of groundbreaking innovations in engineering, science, and technology. In 2023, they're not just recognising excellence and innovation, but also emphasising measurable impact, a long-term view, and incorporating social and environmental impact across all categories.


Stay tuned for our next update, where we hope to bring you some good news! Wish us luck and watch this space.
