Remote support from medical device specialist
By providing surgeons with smart glasses, medical device reps can see what a surgeon sees and give instant feedback or advice from a distance. In emergency rooms or intensive care units, staff can call for help or talk to staff in another room without picking up a phone or moving from one location to another. This lets them keep both hands on the patient, and avoid contamination caused by picking up a phone.
Improved and faster diagnosis
With the use of smart glasses, a colleague or medical expert thousands of miles away can assist in making the right diagnosis. Access to a second opinion from a distance, can significantly improve diagnostic accuracy and speed. This is a solution for healthcare workers operating in very remote areas or delivering patient care away from the hospital context.
Livestreaming of surgery for training purposes
Smart glasses facilitate in-depth training even when it’s not possible for students/staff to access the OT in person. Smart glasses allow healthcare professionals to livestream and record key medical procedures for later training or assessment. Because the built-in central cameras follow the exact head and eye movements of a surgeon, it results in a better and more realistic livestream than with the use of fixed cameras.
