Latest technology for elderly people

Latest technology for elderly people

Doctors, guardians and members of family more often use new technologies while carrying elderly people. One from the solutions which are we going to use to improve elders security is wearable technology – clothes or accessories which contains technical gadgets.
One target audience would be people with Alzheimer who can easily get lost because of memory impairment. It is planned to create special bracelets which would allow localizing users. Relatives or guardians could have an opportunity to check not only the whereabouts of wards but also if they are moving or not or may be they are lying. Ability to find out elder’s position is really important. May be information that person is lying in a bed is not so essential but message that elder is lying on the floor in the bathroom could be helpful.
It is also considered to produce clothes which could control moves in similar way.
In contrast, in Australia is led research on the belt which could imitate devices for dialysis. Patients would not have to stop to do blood purification process. They could move from place to place easily.
And as we return again to devices which allow localizing lost people – interesting option is that guardians could get information whenever elder crosses the “safe zone”, when he would be too far from home. It would allow calling for help and returning elders to place where they would be safe.

Google Glass and telemedicine

Google Glass and telemedicine

Rhode Island Hospital on Friday began testing Google Glass to live stream video images so that remote specialists can assist in diagnosing emergency room conditions.
The Google Glass foray into hospitals marks a first of its kind, according to the report in the Providence Journal.
Hospital staff there begun the 6-month trial with ambitions that, if successful, ambulance crews and other personnel could be equipped to pipe in live video and audio that could assist with early intervention, saying it could be particularly useful in the quick treatment of stroke victims.
Rhode Island Hospital is just the latest to use technology to send video to remote specialists who could alter medical outcomes by reducing diagnostic time. Last year, robots rolled into California hospitals allowing specialist doctors to quickly make remote visits in the emergency room.
iRobot, maker of the popular Roomba vacuum cleaner, partnered with InTouch Health to unleash a robot named RP-VITA, which is used by hospitals near Sacramento to allow remote-controlled visits from its stroke specialist. The Mercy San Juan Medical Center there says the program is reducing complications from strokes by speeding treatment times, a crucial element to minimizing damage.
In both the Rhode Island Hospital and California’s Mercy San Juan Medical Center, neurologists could use video imagery to decide if a critical clot-busting drug, ideally administered within the first 30 minutes of onset, should be used.
“That would be like the Holy Grail,” Dr. Paul Porter told the newspaper. “But we’re just at the beginning; you have to start somewhere.”
These intravenously delivered drugs, known as tissue plasminogen activators, can restore blood flow to speed recovery with less trauma to the brain. Doctors in the specialist field say this is an important advancement in improving the “door-to-needle time” in the profession.
Rhode Island Hospital’s initial tests will be limited to dermatology cases such as skin rashes and other related afflictions in the emergency room by those who consent to participation in the pilot program.
The version of Google Glass used in the hospital had to be specially configured to comply with federal privacy laws. Rhode Island Hospital enlisted the help of Texas startup Pristine, which stripped out the ability to connect to the Internet or store video and audio. Instead, it offers only live audio and video that’s sent encrypted.
A specialist watching the information captured by Google Glass or that of the robots in California can use tablet computers to view patients remotely and speak to those in the emergency room. Rhode Island Hospital begun the program with two sets of the special-purpose Google Glass units, a pair of tablet computers and software.
