The BBC has filmed the partially-sighted Paralympian Libby Clegg, who has seen her fiance more clearly than ever before thanks to a new set of hi-tech goggles from Serendip® Digital Health Quarter tenant Give Vision.

Part of Innovation Birmingham’s Serendip® Smart Cities Incubator programme, the Digital Health Quarter is delivered by Innovation Birmingham in collaboration with the WMAHSN. 

Libby used Give Vision's SightPlus device, a revolutionary electronic headset that allows people with visual impairment to see again. It is a wearable, hands-free, portable device that uses state-of-the-art technology to enhance remaining sight and bring the world back into focus. The gold medal runner tested the prototype at GiveVision's offices.

You can watch the video of Libby and her fiance Dan on the BBC website.
