Professor Robin Watts guided a project investigating the possibilities of using the 3D virtual world of Second Life ® in teaching and learning for nurses and pharmacy students.

 

Students and tutors can review their progress and reflect upon the decisions made about treating the patient. All activity in the clinic is logged and connects to a Moodle (LMS) installation via an opensource mashup called SLOODLE.

HealthInterlink gets FDA clearance for remote patient monitoring system

HealthInterlink gets FDA clearance for remote patient monitoring system | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it

Remote patient monitoring company HealthInterlink received FDA 510(k) class II clearance for Beacon 2.0, a mobile-centric software system that integrates data from various home health devices. Beacon was previously cleared as a class I medical device (MDDS). HealthInterlink plans to begin commercialization of the device in the US immediately.

Beacon 2.0 works on tablets, smartphones and via texting. The software system integrates with patients’ connected medical devices including blood pressure cuffs, spectrometers, thermometers, pulse oximeters, glucometers, and weight scales. This information is sent through HealthInterlink’s server to a healthcare provider’s tablet, laptop or desktop.

Multiple patients can share one Beacon system.

“We see this clearance as a major milestone in helping make chronic care more convenient and less disruptive for patients,” Danna Kehm, Managing Director of HealthInterlink said in a statement. “Regulatory clearance of our software shows that it performs equivalently to a traditional bulky monitor and helps us move towards our bigger vision of reimagining chronic care with mobile devices in a mHealth world.”

HealthInterlink sells its software as part of a custom kit, which contains a combination of tablets and remote monitoring devices that the user may need to use Beacon. The standard kit comes with a 10.1″ Android tablet or a 7″ tablet (with FDA-cleared medical devices as well), but the company said they would work with patients to provide them with a kit that suits their needs.

In July 2013, Juniper Research predicted that remote patient monitoring will save the world’s healthcare systems up to $36 billion by 2018. The report goes on to say that smartphones and connected devices will grow more rapidly than dedicated, non-smartphone-connected mobile health devices.

Aged care workers can now experience what it feels like to live with dementia at an Australian-first dementia learning centre that uses light, sound, colour, visual content and serious gaming technology to create a virtual reality.

 

The Perc Walkley Dementia Learning Centre is a key feature of Alzheimer’s Australia Vic’s new facility in Parkville, Melbourne, which was opened by Alzheimer’s Australia National President Ita Buttrose on Wednesday.

 

The training centre features doughnut shaped mood lighting, a 10 metre by two metre projection wall, an interactive touch screen and gesture-sensor technology.

A Robot With A Hypodermic Needle | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it

Would you let a robot take your blood? The answer to this question illuminates our real relationship to machines that aspire to rise above the robot vac. Is there another sort of uncanny valley?

Veebot is a very clever use of some basic image processing plus some very accurate positioning mechanisms. It first locates a good vein using infrared. Once it has a target it switches to ultrasound to make sure that there is enough blood flow to make it worth inserting the needle.

Innovative Collaboration Between SIMmersion and Medscape Will Use Virtual Patient to Introduce Doctors to the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing | The SIMmersion Blog | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it

Motivational  Interviewing (MI) is a proven approach for encouraging patients towards positive change, and the Blending Initiative—a joint project of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA)— seeks to expand the adoption of MI by practitioners. SIMmersion announces a partnership with SEI and the Blending Initiative to create an engaging virtual introduction to the spirit of MI for primary care physicians.

7 Wonderful iPad Apps to Learn about Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it

"Technology has radically revolutionized the human science and provided us with profound insights that were not knowable to us before. It has also cracked the dark secrets of some key scientific concepts that mystified the human mind since the dawn of time. The physiology of the body and body anatomy are some of these key areas that have benefited a great deal from the advancement of technology. Consequently, the teaching of these concepts have become way easier and more attainable. In this regard, developers now have designed so many apps that examine the human body in 3D."

Experiencing Psychosis with Digital LSD

In 2005, artist Jennifer Kanary's sister-in-law committed suicide while suffering from a psychotic episode. This event led Jennifer to develop Labyrinth Psychotica, an experience designed to give people more insight into how it feels to suffer through psychosis.

Users are strapped into virtual reality gear and transported into the mind of a psychotic girl named Jamie. The whole experience lasts twelve minutes, during which 'normal' reality gets increasingly intertwined with Jamie's psychotic reality, making it more and more difficult to distinguish between what's real and what's not.
