Iris is a comprehensive rehabilitation monitoring system made for people with blindness/low-vision (BLV) and their occupational therapists.

We worked closely with a vision occupational therapist (OT) to develop routines that help patients re-acquire essential daily skills. The wearable Iris tracker logs patients’ sessions at home so that they can continue developing the techniques they learn from OT sessions. Building on existing therapy paradigms, the Iris system creates a positive reinforcement cycle and fosters synchronous and asynchronous feedback between therapists and patients.
