“Our system allows doctors to scan through patients’ medical records mid-surgery using simple hand gestures. They can just wave their hands in the air with no fear of touching anything potentially smeared with bacteria — and navigate medical records on a computer screen”
Blood-spattered surgeons intent on maintaining operating theatre sterility can hardly be expected to drop everything, strip off their gloves and type madly on a PC to dig up urgent patient data. But what if they could just wave their hands in the air with no fear of touching anything potentially smeared with bacteria — and navigate medical records on a computer screen using simple gestures?
What if surgeons could just wave their hands in the air — with no fear of touching anything potentially smeared with bacteria — and navigate medical records on a computer screen using simple gestures?
G-EMR, The product developed by Gesture Research is already helping to make that a reality, using the latest innovation from Microsoft: Kinect motion sensing platform to allow doctors to access medical records on computers in the non-sterile parts of operating rooms using gestural, touch-less interfaces and Voice Commands. This means surgeons can scroll through records mid-surgery without removing their gloves and having to scrub back in.
Communication takes a lot of time and effort, Which is crucial during the surgery. Complex knowledge generation requires hand-on interaction.
Also it is possible to initiate a Video Call and Share Documents using the conferencing tools installed on the machine to get consultation from the doctors sitting anywhere around the world without moving out from the sterile area and without touch any non-sterile object like a cellphone or PC. Taking the collaboration during the surgery to a next level.
Touch-Less access to collaboration tools like Microsoft Lync adds amazing possibilities for tele-medicine and expert consultation while the surgery.
