Remote support in Covid-19 intensive care
Updated: Jul 21, 2020
ATTRACT project H3D-VisionAir is developing 3D-microscope glasses that visualise the invisible. This technology offers surgeons head-worn augmented reality by combining 3D-multispectral cameras, advanced computer analytics, and near-eye displays. The technology consists of a headset with a built-in camera that enables somebody else to see what you see and give advice, as well as show data or protocols. It works through a wearable PC with a wifi link. It is also a great tool for remote education in 2D or 3D in these times of coronavirus where face-to-face education has stopped.
The smart-eye technology could offer remote support for doctors and nurses in intensive care units during the Covid-19 crisis
The researchers have also developed a second product, a monocular AR headset, with a camera that works with a smartphone app. This smart-eye technology could offer remote support for doctors and nurses in intensive care units during the Covid-19 crisis. “Medical staff could wear the headset with a built-in camera, capture video stream in intensive care, and contact a specialist through a smartphone, so that the specialist can give IC staff advice from his office or home,” says Jaap Heukelom, principal investigator of the H3D-VisionAir project.
