All of them have improved our life a lot in the era of technology development.
Augmented reality is different from virtual reality technology in two points. More precisely, users will not fall behind reality while putting information into eyesight as a rapid pace. These outstanding features will allow augmented reality to become a big player in the future of healthcare, both on healthcare vendors’ and recipients’ side.
When it comes to medical experts, it might support medical students to be well prepared for operations in real life, as well as allows surgeons to widen their abilities. This is already the case at Case Western Reserve University in which students make use of Microsoft HoloLens to research the anatomy through the HoloAnatomy application. Thanks to this solution, medical students can approach detailed and accurate depictions of the human anatomy in order to study their major while there is no need for operating on real bodies.
Another company named Magic Leap will also start to use its reality headset to healthcare industry. Magic Leap has collaborated with Sync Think for brain health, with XR Health for creating a therapeutic platform and with German healthcare technology firm Brainlab to adopt computing technology to healthcare. We are looking forward to see the real products from these partnerships coming in the future.
Healthcare trackers, wearable devices and sensors
Due to the fact that the future of medicine and healthcare is linked to the empowerment of patients as well as individuals who are looking after themselves by using technologies, health trackers, wearable devices and sensors now become more and more popular. They are wonderful devices used to learn more about our health and control over our lifestyle. For instance, a lot of people are now using the Fitbit Ionic to manage their sleep and track their workout. Or some of them use the Polar H10 in order to seek the most suitable exercises for their habits. When it comes to meditation, the Muse headband is a great option for an effective meditation session.
