Design Specifications

The system is based on an Eye Tracking device, which is a sensor that monitors the progress of the eye muscles’ movement while the patient is reading or playing in the app. The biometric data obtained is processed to provide the following parameters related to reading performance: words read/minute, number of stops on each word, number of times the reader goes back, reading speed, reading difficulties and more. A predictive model provides statistical indicators of the improvement of reading ability. The system aims to provide remote eye therapy in low resource settings, since the current number of optometrist cannot cover the demand.

Manufacturer Specified Performance Parameters

The app should be playful and easy to use as it is intended for children. Specifications for the mockups design are unknown.

Vetted Performance Status

From a pilot in Barrio San Francisco, Paraguay, the manufacturers found, after a therapy session with Okimo on each child, that 16% of the sample presented visual problems, 55% of the children could’t clearly read words or letters, and that 22% had a slow reading speed.


Okimo app presents no risk for the electronic equipment or the children that use the software. The non-invasive sensor to track the eye movement doesn’t represent a hazard either.
