Google Glass Makes Its Way Into Operating Rooms

Google Glass Makes Its Way Into Operating Rooms | Health & Medical Technology | Scoop.it

Hands-free devices like Google Glass can be really transformative when the hands they free are those of a surgeon. And leading hospitals, including Stanford and the University of California at San Francisco, are beginning to use Glass in the operating room.


In October, UCSF’s Pierre Theodore, a cardiothoracic surgeon, became the first doctor in the United States to obtain Institutional Review Board approval to use the device to assist him during surgery. Theodore pre-loads onto Glass the scans of images of the patient taken just before surgery and consults them during the operation.


“To be able to have those X-rays directly in your field without having to leave the operating room or to log on to another system elsewhere, or to turn yourself away from the patient in order to divert your attention, is very helpful in terms of maintaining your attention where it should be, which is on the patient 100 percent of the time,” said Theodore.


A Stanford-affiliated startup calledVitalMedicals is developing a system that would automate doctors’ access to patient images and medical records using Glass by syncing them automatically via Wi-Fi. VitalMedicals’ debut app, VitalStream, sends live vital signs and alarms to the operating surgeon’s Glass device during conscious sedation. It gets the vital signs from its integration with the ViSi mobile vital sign monitor


VitalMedicals is working on a second app, SurgStream, which displays the pre-surgical images and streams live fluoroscopy,  ultrasound  and  endoscopy video to Glass or a tablet.


The projects, which emerged from Google’s early outreach to developers to create apps for Glass, are still in their earliest stages and still have time to iron out the bugs. And with many doctors interested in applications for the wearable interface, Glass is likely to spread quickly when they do.

AiQ's BioMan Biomonitoring Shirt and Other Smart Clothing Technology

AiQ's BioMan Biomonitoring Shirt and Other Smart Clothing Technology | Health & Medical Technology | Scoop.it

Why bother buying a watch or bracelet to track your daily activities and calories burned, when your shirt can do it for you? 


AiQ, a company based in Taiwan that develops smart clothing featuring embedded sensors, has come out with the BioMan shirt that is able to keep track of your body vitals.


The BioMan is able to track heart rate, respiration rate and skin temperature. That information can then be sent to a smartphone or other device wirelessly via Bluetooth. Embedded steel threads within the shirt provide the electrical conductivity that allows for vitals sensing. The material can be further customized to potentially measure skin moisture and electrophysiological signals such as EKG, electroencephalography (EEG), or electromyography (EMG).


The Bioman shirt is different from other wearable monitors as the sensors are integrated into the garment so that the wearer doesn’t have to worry about misplacing or forgetting to wear them. This technology has great potential for not only routine tracking of body vitals, but also to alert care centers in the event of unusual cardiovascular activity.
