Bionic glasses and headpiece

Bionic Eye digital render: Health Collab

Monash University’s Health Collab worked with Monash Vision Group to create prototype headgear designs for their Gennaris bionic vision system, an innovative wireless transmission technology that has the potential to assist people who have total blindness.

The headgear design aimed to humanise this complex technology, creating a device that recipients would feel confident and comfortable to wear. Health Collab’s research and design operates at the centre of the complex ecosystem of health services – using a people-centred design approach to create high-impact services and products. Monash University’s Art Design & Architecture Faculty is a connected, collaborative, creative community of students, researchers, academics and practitioners.
