We speak to Robert Yearsley, CEO and co-founder of ARIA Research, a company developing a new medical device - a non-surgical and non-invasive Electronic Vision Aid in the form of a pair of glasses - which enables blind and vision-impaired people to see through sound.
ARIA has been developed in collaboration with University of Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, Blind Citizens Australia and World Access for the Blind Australia. MTPConnect is supporting ARIA's research to develop a prototype of the glasses for clinical trials through the BioMedtech Horizons program.
Co-hosts Caroline Duell and Dr Gerard Gibbs check in with Robert on ARIA’s progress towards clinical trials and find out why the device could be a game changer for 338 million people worldwide who live with visual impairment. Check out ARIA’s website: https://ariaresearch.com.au/
