Wearable Devices Expands Mudra Licensing Program to Include Defense and Military Applications

The Company has been approached by global defense and military organizations interested in incorporating advanced technologies into their operations

YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, Oct. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wearable Devices Ltd. (the “Company” or “Wearable Devices”) (Nasdaq: WLDS, WLDSW), a technology growth company specializing in artificial intelligence (AI)-powered touchless sensing wearables, today announced the expansion of its Mudra gesture technology licensing program (the “Licensing Program”) to include defense and military applications, in response to the increasing demand within this sector.

The Company has already received requests for quotes from leading global defense and homeland security companies seeking to evaluate Mudra technology for potential integration into their own products and operations. With the control of defense technology increasingly shifting to ground and field operators, Mudra gesture technology offers customized, easy-to-use, discreet solutions that can maximize efficiency and minimize margin for error in environments where these are of the utmost importance.

The Licensing Program provides original equipment manufacturers with the right to customize a reference design version of the Company’s award-winning Mudra gesture technology to meet the specific needs of their business. The Company's proprietary technology is at the forefront of gesture recognition, using AI-based touchless sensing wearables to control devices with hand gestures. Through the Licensing Program, Wearable Devices is positioned to significantly expand its addressable market by enabling businesses to develop their own co-branded touchless control products.

Asher Dahan, CEO of Wearable Devices, commented, “Our expansion into the defense and military sector reflects the expanding demand for our technology and the variety of applications our technology can enhance and support. We've been approached by several leading defense and homeland security companies that have recognized the potential of our Mudra gesture technology in their products and operations. As defense technology becomes an imperative part of the defense industry, our customizable and user-friendly gesture solutions are ideally suited for the direction in which this market is headed.”
