As Showcased At CES 2019 – The Future Of Healthcare Will Largely Include VR, AR, And Smart Technology
At the CES 2019, plenty of health-tech was seen, such as a VR display with haptic feedback to assist surgeons with delicate spinal procedures, a meditation experience against the user’s brainwave activity, and a remote ultrasound device for those who are pregnant.
The best niche for innovation with med-tech marketers is augmented reality. It is believed by most in the industry that 5G connectivity will help in popularizing and improving the immersive experience. Apart from being used by marketers. AR can also be used to increase patient engagement and their understanding of the health issue. For instance…
VR collaboration between Klick and Boston Children’s Hospital called HealthVoyager, which allows patients who have received colonoscopies to travel through an animated 3-D version of their own digestive tract.
While AR and VR are quite useful, there is an ongoing debate on whether the added cost is worth it. It might be, especially since there are virtual training tools available where the surgeons can practice without risking anyone’s health.
Telehealth and wearable sensors are also becoming popular. However, one concern with 24/7 monitoring is privacy concerns. Empathy building and products to help with that is an advocated use of VR.
There are VR campaigns that help doctors and caregivers understand how it feels to go through Parkinson’s tremors or a migraine, helping them understand better what the patient is going through.
