Example of apps for healthcare

Augmented reality is one of the most promising digital health technologies at present and it has the potential to change healthcare and everyday medicine completely for physicians and patients alike.

Augmented reality in healthcare

In many ways, AR is a mixture of VR, imposed into real life. These virtual contents are typically in the form of digital imagery or sound, usually applied in 3D models or videos. AR works via the use of a range of sensors such as a camera, computer components or a display device.

There are many augmented reality opportunities in Healthcare

The augmented reality, as we already can see, everywhere obtains various forms and AR applications. It also found a different use in the healthcare industry.

Augmented Surgery

Augmented reality will allow surgeons to precisely study their patients’ anatomy by entering their MRI data and CT scans into an AR headset and overlay specific patient anatomy on top of their body before actually going into surgery. Surgeons will be able to visualize bones, muscles, and internal organs without even having to cut open a body.

This could also help them determine exactly where to make injections and incisions and it could be used to display life-saving information for paramedics and first responders during a medical emergency. AR can not only be used to perform accurate and low-risk surgeries, but it can also help surgeons save time in the case of an emergency surgery. Instead of searching among papers or through electronic medical records, surgeons can have access to all of that information on their AR screen within seconds.

Pharma companies can provide more innovative drug information

With the help of AR, patients can see how the drug works in 3D in front of their eyes instead of just reading long descriptions on the bottle. Lab workers could monitor their experiments with augmented reality equipment. In pharmaceutical factories, workers could start working without hands on trainings as the device would tell them what to do, and how to do it.

Holo Eye Anatomy

This app works exclusively on the  Microsoft HoloLens. The application projects the realistic 3D model of the human eye to a near by vision-plane, a realistic 3D model resembling the actual human eye is created, using the interactive Augmented reality technology of Microsoft HoloLens.

You can literally interact with this virtual 3D model (Hologram). Moreover, by using simple hand gestures, you can also pan, zoom, rotate or slice the 3D model to know any specific detail.

VeinSeek Pro

This Augmented reality healthcare application is also for finding (visualizing) the veins. 

The function and basic technology of this application is very similar to AccuVein. Although, the application is quite useful to visualize and study the anatomy of blood vessels lies under your skin.

Touch Surgery

Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices and Touch Surgery jointly introduce their Augmented reality simulator in the form of an AR App. And, they name it as Touch Surgery. This app works exclusively on the  Microsoft HoloLens. The application projects the realistic 3D model of the human eye to a near by vision-plane, a realistic 3D model resembling the actual human eye is created, using the interactive Augmented reality technology of Microsoft HoloLens.

Conclusion

AR technologies have already proven their value in medicine and are likely to bring even greater changes in the coming years. AR will play a vital role in helping to prevent, control, and cure millions of people. Thanks to its many applications and contributions of value in each area in which it is used, making life easier for people.
