Medical practice is beginning to make use of augmented reality in the development of apps for professionals and patients in order to interact with computer data in a more convenient, immersive, and interactive way. Apple and Android have introduced their AR development platforms, called ARKit and ARCore, and this will make AR's exciting 3D interface available to a much wider audience. ARKit and ARCore make it possible for anyone with smartphone, tablet,
or AR eyewear to access augmented reality apps using the camera to create the field of view. 3D computer graphics are layered into the user's view to show graphics and information that interact with actual objects. DDA is a leading developer of VMS, or virtual medical simulations, and we can see the advantages for many industries to develop new application concepts that incorporate augmented reality into their new software projects.
Obstetrics training, postpartum maternity care, and patient monitoring are several ways augmented reality applications can serve the OB/GYN community. A high standard of obstetrics training can be achieved with no risk or liability using AR technology to simulate real-world conditions in the delivery room. Advanced facial recognition capabilities can link detailed medical data to patients at a glance, facilitating operations and streamlining postpartum maternity care. Both clinicians and patients can use AR apps to regularly monitor the gestation process, with visualization tools that augment ultrasound and other conventional technologies.
Augmented reality apps for obstetrics give prospective mothers excellent tools to guide them through the pregnancy process every step of the way, acting as a faithful assistant with information at the ready. Other apps can serve the OB/GYN medical community with patient screening and facial recognition features to facilitate hospital care, and advanced simulation training for prospective obstetricians in a zero-risk, zero-liability development platform.
Augmented reality obstetrics applications will be designed around the well-established standards for obstetric care, and can be certified by the appropriate OB/GYN regulatory bodies. Obstetric care is typically broken down by trimesters, and apps can be created to serve the clinicians and medical professionals involved in practice, and for potential mothers as well, with interactive features that provide context-specific information during their pregnancy.
Augmented reality obstetrics applications can be a great way to enhance the experience of ultrasounds in the office. Ultrasound images can be coordinated to the location of the actual baby so a tablet can be used as a window a mother can use to look through her own belly to see her growing baby in the womb. The screen can then present relevant information on the progress of the pregnancy and the health of both mother and child, helping to aid in retention of the information conveyed through the emotional appeal of witnessing the child's movements even more directly than traditional ultrasound would allow. Augmented reality applications may also be developed to aid in fetal assessments. Fetal screening, fetal karyotyping, and diagnostic tools to check for congenital diseases and intercurrent diseases such as diabetes, lupus, and thyroid issues can provide visual cues to assist in the evaluation of these conditions, and screen a potential mother's health and the subsequent impact on the fetus.
DDA is a medical augmented reality application company with extensive experience in developing custom mobile application software for the medical community. DDA created its first augmented reality project in 2009, and received the Tabby Award for the Best Healthcare iPad App of 2102. The advent of ARKit and ARCore makes the development of innovative AR mobile apps for the medical industry very timely and attractive, and DDA is excited about the many opportunities ahead. DDA's studios are located just outside of Philadelphia, and offers one of the most comprehensive skill sets of any medical augmented reality app company anywhere, locally or nationally. DDA's vertically integrated team of experienced professionals is prepared to complete all aspects of a software development project in-house, without outsourcing to other parties. Doing all of the work in house helps control costs and keep client communication clear and timely. Throughout development, DDA performs methodical quality control procedures to ensure a flawless and engaging end user experience, across every platform and for every device. Whether the project requires database design, eLearning and certification programming, 3D modeling and animation, graphic design, multimedia production, or any type of custom software design and programming, DDA is a medical augmented reality app company that's prepared to exceed your expectations.
