Eight ways the Microsoft Kinect will change healthcare

Eight ways the Microsoft Kinect will change healthcare | Health 2.0 Israel | Scoop.it

We never really know where the next game-changing innovation will come from. The smartphone started out as just that — a smarter phone. But when Apple opened up its API to developers, that open source project started to unlock the true potential of a handheld, connected touchscreen computer. Nowadays, the ability to make a phone call might just be the least important thing your smartphone does for you.

 

In the next few years, we might be saying something similar about the Microsoft Kinect, which has a similarly open software development kit. What began as a video game controller is rapidly becoming much more, as developers turn the power of computerized gesture recognition onto a bevy of healthcare uses.

When Smartphones Do a Doctor’s Job | MIT

When Smartphones Do a Doctor’s Job | MIT | Health 2.0 Israel | Scoop.it

At EyeNetra, the startup he cofounded, goofy curiosities like plastic eyeballs line the shelves, and a 3-D printing machine whirs in the background. It’s printing out prototypes of a device that will attach to your smartphone and, in a minute or two, tell you what kind of eyeglasses you need.

The device, called the Netra-G, is based on some clever optics and software Pamplona came up with—a way to measure the refractive error of the eye using a smartphone screen and an inexpensive pair of plastic binoculars. The whole setup might cost a few dollars to make. It does the job of a $5,000 instrument called an autorefractor.

 

More important, just about anyone could use it. That’s where the disruption comes in—and the trouble. Right now, only doctors or optometrists can prescribe glasses or contact lenses. Pamplona, a brash Brazilian programmer who arrived in the U.S. a few years ago, thinks that won’t always be the case. “We’re changing medicine by providing the user the right to measure themselves,” he says. “We see doctors as more of a coach.”

Andrew N Levy's curator insight, September 15, 2013 8:36 PM

The first thing I notice is that the rest of the title has been cut off. The whole title should read, "When Smartphones Do a Doctor's Job...Better". What does that tell you about the state of physicians in this country when an app could potentially replace them? Can we really blame them when the Affordable Care Act will leave them getting reimbursed about as much as chiropractors get now? (i.e. not much)
