Patient Handling AR
Augmented reality is a new computer interface that emerged from robotic surgery and is now finding its way into many other types of applications across a spectrum of activities and interests, including applications for the medical and health care industry. Apple and Android have introduced their new AR development platforms, named ARKit and ARCore respectively, and this opens up the opportunity for software developers to create AR applications that reach a much larger audience. Now anyone with a smartphone or tablet can access high quality augmented reality applications for business, industry, manufacturing, entertainment, and healthcare.
AugmentedReality.health is a full-service interactive multimedia developer with a specific focus on the design and development of augmented reality applications. The company launched its first AR project in 2009. With extensive experience in VMS, or virtual medical simulations, and a long list of satisfied repeat clients in the medical and health care industries, AugmentedReality.health can see the many opportunities ahead. As a result, there are a number of augmented reality concepts they invite you to consider for development. Patient Handling AR is an augmented reality medical concept that addresses the advent of new patient handling technology and an augmented reality application that orients an EMT to its proper use and deployment.
Patient handling is a critical part of everyday operations, from EMTs in the field to routine patient transfers in and around a medical facility. New inflatable patient handling technology has been developed in recent years that improve conventional methods. Patient Handling AR works as a complement to the new technology and provides immersive training with augmented reality as its interface.
Patient Handling AR has the potential to work in tandem with the introduction of new inflatable patient handling technology, and to act as a method to train people and advance its use as the new industry standard. AugmentedReality.health can see the many ways augmented reality will facilitate medical training of all kinds, and Patient Handling AR provides an excellent opportunity to use augmented reality for practical applications.
Patient Handling AR can be used to create training and instruction to familiarize techs, nurses, and others with the equipment. Interactive simulations train users to adjust patients onto patient handling bedding properly, and to address particular concerns in special conditions, such as patients with special needs, moving over broken ground, and cramped quarters and stairs, as well as onsite training using real patient handling equipment with augmented information. Floating text can be used to caption the equipment with instructions, and arrows and operational diagrams can indicate ways for users to minimize effort and maximize patient comfort during transitions. The entire process is covered, from the arrival to the patient, the deployment of the pump, the arrangement of the mattress, the details of the transfer, and finally, the breakdown and deflation of the equipment, as well as subsequent maintenance and storage for the next use.
DDA formed AugmentedReality.health to respond to the advent of widespread availability and access through smartphone and tablet applications, and they are prepared to employ their award-winning approach to your software development projects. With Tabby Awards in both 2012 and 2014 for two of its own original tablet applications, in addition to multiple awards for interactive web design and search engine marketing, AugmentedReality.health has established itself as an industry leader. By using a logical and iterative approach to software development, an experienced team of professional designers, programmers, and multimedia specialists will handle every aspect of the project in house, without the use of third party subcontractors. Maintaining complete control of the project ensures communication with the client during every phase of the process, resulting in a fully integrated and tested product. Whether your project involves continuing medical education (CME) and other eLearning platforms, videos, animations, mobile apps, augmented reality, or other digital/interactive media, AugmentedReality.health will help you achieve your goals and exceed your expectations.
