Evena Medical Receives Multiple Orders From International Distribution Partners for Eyes-On(TM) Glasses

New Distribution Partner in China Places $6.4 Million Order for Innovative, Wearable Vascular Imaging System

LOS ALTOS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- Evena Medical, a leader in the development of high-quality, high-definition imaging for fast, accurate and precise venous access, today announced the company has received a $6.4 million order for its Eyes-On™ Glasses imaging system from a leading distributor of medical products in China. Evena Eyes-On Glasses is a one-of-a-kind point-of-care wearable unit which enables nurses at the bedside to see "through" a patient's skin to the vasculature beneath; with Evena's Eyes-On Glasses, even hard-to-locate veins are easier to see and access.

Launched last month at the Medica Tradefair in Dusseldorf, Germany, the Eyes-On Glasses system is a wearable device that has gained significant interest and visibility since the product's launch. Eyes-On Glasses is a truly breakthrough product that not only provides anatomically accurate, real-time and hands-free vascular imaging, but also includes unprecedented connectivity to other clinical diagnostic tools including ultrasound, and hospital data systems, for the first time enabling true convergence of medical data.

"We are very pleased to have a leading medical product distributor as a partner in China and are excited to work with their team to bring the Eyes-On Glasses to hospitals throughout China," said Frank Ball, Evena Medical President and CEO. "We have had tremendous interest in Eyes-On Glasses from healthcare institutions around the world, and continue to add distribution partners in the US and internationally."

About IV Access
Intravenous (IV) access is the most common invasive medical procedure today. There are roughly one billion venipunctures for drawing blood and initiating IV therapy annually in the US(1). In the hospital, virtually all patients receive IVs for both drawing blood for laboratory analysis, and for administering fluids and/or drugs. It has been estimated that up to 60% of children and 40% of adults require multiple attempts to access a vein(2)(3), and in challenging clinical environments the failure rate can be even higher. Imprecise IV access can result in adverse events related to drug delivery outside of the venous system and when IV access is not achieved, therapy can be delayed or cancelled -- impacting patient care and hospital revenues.

About Eyes-On Glasses
Featuring a patented design that incorporates multi-spectral 3D imaging and wireless connectivity, Evena's point-of-care Eyes-On system is the first vein detection device to deliver clear, anatomically accurate, real-time imaging in a wearable, easy-to-use, hands-free and cart-free system. The Eyes-On system utilizes the Epson Moverio™ "smart glasses" technology platform and its unique "look-through" capabilities to offer one of the first healthcare applications of smart glasses commercially available on a global scale.

Evena's Eyes-On Glasses include digital storage to enable easy verification and documentation of vein patency throughout a patient's stay in the hospital, and telemedicine capability to share images remotely. The system also interfaces with hospital electronic medical records systems for seamless documentation.

About Evena Medical
Evena Medical is a privately-held company based in California's Silicon Valley which develops innovative imaging technologies for fast, accurate and precise intravenous access. Evena's initial product, the Evena Owl™, was launched in early 2013 and is available worldwide. Evena's Eyes-On Glasses system is a breakthrough wearable design that brings an entirely new vision to vascular access. Evena is currently seeking distribution partners in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. For more information, visit www.EvenaMed.com, or email [email protected].

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
