BCN Innova



BcnInnova includes two business units. The mission of each one of them is:

  • To take advantage of artificial vision technology to revolutionize the sector of ophtalmology; developing, manufacturing and commercializing new devices to support diagnosis.
  • To take advantage of accumulated knowledge for the creation and development of technological solutions based on artificial vision. The projects look to fulfil real needs in any discipline within the medical field that require the use of images for diagnosis purposes.


The vision for each business unit can be summarized as:

  • To turn our devices into a standard for diagnosis and measurement, either for strabismus or for future applications that we might develop.
  • To become a highly specialized company in vision technology and a market leader in the detection of needs and customized project development within the medical sector.


BcnInnova has its own soul. A common soul shared by all those people who are part of the company. Our values are:

  • Customer satisfaction
  • Service orientation
  • Teamwork
  • Transparency
  • Seriousness
  • Commitment
  • To cover real needs


As the person responsible for the Ophthalmology Department at the Pediatric Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in Barcelona (one of the largest of its kind in Europe), Dr. Joan Prat is perfectly aware of the limitations of the technology available for ophthalmologists.

For this reason, in 2006, he started a project to develop a new measurement system for strabismus.

The project underwent numerous problems and difficulties, but thanks to the impetus and determination of those working on the project, it was possible to set up the company BcnInnova.

Under this company name the GazeLab system was created, as well as other new projects have been nurturing with the accumulated experience and know-how.
