EMV Inspection AR
Originally developed to as an interface for robotic surgery, augmented reality is beginning to make its way into other medical applications. Using an innovative combination of virtual graphics and a real world setting, augmented reality offers the opportunity to mesh computer information with the real world in a far more efficient and seamless context. Apple and Android's have released new AR development platforms, named ARKit and ARCore respectively, making it possible to develop AR applications that can be accessed by anyone with a smartphone or tablet.
New augmented reality applications can now be developed for all kinds of medical and healthcare activities, and to provide critical support for the entire industry. AugmentedReality.health is a leading developer of augmented reality applications, and they have responded to the advent of ARkit and ARCore with a number of health related augmented reality concepts that focus on delivering practical value for the medical community. EMV Inspection AR is one of the augmented reality medical concepts AugmentedReality.health believes can provide immediate benefit to the health care industry.
Before EMTs go out to treat and retrieve patients, they must ensure their vehicles are properly equipped. The Department of Health is the regulatory body that oversees standards regarding the safety and quality of EMS Vehicles, and they have instituted a new EMS Vehicle Inspection Program. The program includes the inspection of ground ambulances, air ambulances, and EMS First Responder Vehicles. EMV Inspection AR is intended as an augmented reality tool that works closely with the DoH standards to ensure full compliance and to efficiently bring all EMV vehicles up to full readiness.
EMV Inspection AR has the potential to take full advantage of the augmented reality interface, and could be used directly with the DoH to establish the new standard for EMVs. As developers find more ways to combine the features and capabilities of AR with the needs of the medical and health care industry, augmented reality will be able to make many arduous and complex procedures more convenient and efficient. EMV Inspection AR could play an important role in that effort.
The EMV equipment standard lists all of the equipment needed in an EMV, outlining the minimum standard required for compliance, the current gap in existing versus newly enforced equipment standards, and recommendations for additional equipment. By linking the detailed equipment list to a real time augmented reality interface, technicians can scan a vehicle quickly to determine any issues regarding equipment status. Missing, faulty, or inadequately supplied equipment can be dynamically identified for a more immediate response. Users can access EMV Inspection AR on their smartphone or tablet. By using the camera on their device, they can scan the back of the vehicle for a review of the equipment. Floating text will identify each piece of equipment, provide details about its status, and offer real time instruction to bring equipment standards up for readiness. Routine inspection of the vehicle's engine and exterior will also allow EMTs to verify the condition of the vehicle and provide preemptive maintenance prior to going out to the field.
As a leading innovator in VMS, or virtual medical simulations, DDA created AugmentedReality.health in response to the advent of widespread availability and access of augmented reality applications through ARKit and ARCore. AugmentedReality.health has made significant contributions in nearly all forms of digital interactive multimedia design and development, and launched its first augmented reality application in 2009. In addition to multiple awards for interactive web design and search engine marketing, AugmentedReality.health won Tabby Awards in both 2012 and 2014 for two of its own original tablet applications.
By using a logical and iterative approach, AugmentedReality.health's team of highly trained and experienced professional designers, programmers, and multimedia specialists handle every aspect of the project in house, without the use of third party contractors. This way AugmentedReality.health keeps its clients fully informed during each phase of the process, and creates results that are fully integrated and tested to perform flawlessly across every platform and every device. Whether the project requires continuing medical education (CME) and other eLearning platforms to videos, animations, mobile apps, and more, AugmentedReality.health is prepared to meet and exceed your expectations.
