Idea Name: iRestore
Slogan: Let's See Again
Startup Domain: Healthcare
Abstract:
    iRestore aims to provide a cost-effective wearable medical device for low-vision or legally blind patients to restore their functional vision.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    There aren't many reliable and economical solutions for people with low-vision or legal blindness in our country most of whom are not financially stable. Our idea tries to provide a low-cost solution for such people.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Of the 285 million people worldwide with vision impairment, there are 80 million people who have permanent vision impairment and can potentially benefit from low vision services. There are many such cases in our country as well.
How will the solution works
    The device is to be designed in the form of a wearable device.The aim is to make it as easy to use as a mobile phone. Just like when a person wears a VR headset to see the virtual world, we hope to provide a way for people with low-vision or legal blindness to see the real world in that manner.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There aren't any proper commercial or even non-commercial competitors as such as it is dealt by the eye-hospitals who try provide adaptable solutions for each patient with specific problem. Our solution aims to work for all patients in general and aims to be adjustable for each patient as needed.
