Delivering Life-Saving Medical Coverage Globally

A leader in remote surgical training, Ohana One is successfully enabling life-saving medical procedures with remote assist technology using Vuzix M400 smart glasses.

Ohana One recognized that there is a critical shortage of surgeons, especially in low and middle income countries (LMIC), largely in part due to surgeons being under-resourced and not having mentors and/or education to receive the proper training. Ohana One continuously aims to bridge global gaps in surgical care with the Surgical Sight Program, in which they utilize Vuzix M400 smart glasses to offer year-round, high-quality, and individualized remote surgical training.

The Future Looks Bright

As an agile start-up nonprofit Ohana One has already changed the lives of thousands by using cutting-edge technology to transform the face of remote surgical education.
