Proximie has developed a wearable camera that can be used by surgeons to give first-person perspectives during operations. The PXLens was designed by surgeon and co-founder of Proximie, Nadine Hachach-Haram, as a way of overcoming barriers of physical distance so people all over the world can access surgical expertise and provide people all around the world access to surgical expertise. 

PXLens is a lightweight wearable camera worn on the surgeon's head or surgical mask, which allows medical professionals to view exactly what the surgeon can see in real-time.  Working like the loupes regularly used by surgeons and dentists, it records in 4K and is perfect for remote consultations and surgical training, allowing medical professionals to observe and provide guidance during complex procedures.
