Vital Enterprises uses Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality to address the difficulties that knowledge workers have in accessing information and team support while engaged in critical tasks. Vital’s real-time, hands-free information aims to reduce errors, enhance situational awareness, and improve process efficiency.
Vital began in August 2013, when software engineers Ash Eldritch and Aaron Vargas and Stanford vascular surgeon Oliver Aalami joined forces at a San Francisco hackathon. The team built a prototype to stream patient vital signs to Google Glass in real time. Recognizing the tremendous potential of the technology to address the difficulties that knowledge workers have in accessing information and team support while engaged in critical tasks, the three founded Vital to bring their vision to operating rooms and clean rooms everywhere.
Vital’s enterprise software platform integrates with best-in-class glasses from ODG, Google, and more, to deliver augmented and assisted reality tools for manual workers in high-skill high-stakes environments. Vital’s patent-pending ZeroTouch™ technology enables totally hands-free interaction with data-display and communication capabilities, essential for delicate or sterile manual work and confined spaces. Our security and encryption features enable confident deployment in sensitive environments such as hospitals and R&D laboratories.
