In the past, bronchial endoscopy called for the use of the rigid bronchoscope and was consequently used very infrequently in children. The advent of thin and ultrathin fiberoptic bronchoscopes has considerably extended the use of this procedure, even in the neonatal field.
In flexible endoscopy techniques, such as bronchoscopy, there is often a challenge visualizing the path from start to target based on preoperative data and accessing these during the procedure.
In orthopedic surgery, three-dimensional models are usually reconstructed through CT or MRI images. In urgent operations, the most common way for 3-D model reconstruction is to extract C-arm images by C-arm fluoroscopic imaging. However, it is harmful to human bodies because of the ionizing radiation.
Aspirations of foreign bodies are life threatening among children and elderly patients requiring urgent medical assistance.
Simulation-based bronchoscopy training is increasingly used, but effectiveness
Obesity is a large contributor to preventable chronic diseases and healthcare costs. The efficacy of wearable devices for weight management has been researched, however, there is limited knowledge on how these devices are perceived by users.
When we think about wearable technology, we tend to think about fitness trackers and AR headsets, but wearable technology goes well beyond that. In fact, wearable technology is making a huge impact on healthcare industry with devices such as Continuous Glucose Monitoring, Smart pills, Remote Patient Monitoring etc. Another aspect of healthcare that’s being impacted by wearable technology is rehabilitation.
A wearable device is a technology worn on the human body. This type of device has become a more common part of the tech world as companies have started to evolve more types of devices that are small enough to wear and include powerful sensor technologies that can collect and deliver information about their surroundings.
