Vancouver, BC, April 30, 2021,Binovi Technologies Corp.

Acquisition complements Binovi’s education offering
CAVT contains 12 therapy procedures for developing saccadic eye movements, span of recognition, and visual sequential memory skills that are essential for fast and accurate reading. Integration of CAVT with Binovi Connect and the Company’s screening tool, VERA, will create a unique end-to-end platform to help diagnose and train K-12 students with visual issues beyond acuity that have been shown to impact their reading ability.
“The CAVT technology suite adds unique capabilities to our educational offering. The end-to-end integration that this acquisition enables us to complete, truly differentiates Binovi from its competition in a market that is anticipated to show spectacular growth. We know that one in four people struggle with visual issues beyond acuity that impact their lives. The ability to assess young children and offer school boards the tools to address reading issues will have an enormous impact on the lives of many. This is a global and noble pursuit with great commercial applicability, and we are proud to be the leader in this field.”Adam Cegielski, CEO
