FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The most valuable asset of our military are the people that it is made of: our soldiers. Keeping them alive and well is of the highest priority of any military force, and a critical component of fulfilling this mission is a well-educated and well-trained medical force. Especially for a dynamic and distributed force like the military medical teams it is a difficult process to get everybody educated to the same level, especially on military-spcific medical situations that are not taught in regular civilian medical school. The Anatomical Eyes system has the potential to enable military-specific education both initially and, due to its flexible nature, for medical staff in the field to keep themselves current and up-to-date on the latest medical results and procedures ina more effective and realistic way than currently possible.
