As Glass roles-out to trial users, medical companies are building smart glasses for hospitals that will improve real-time patient care.
Evena Medical recently unveiled their Eyes-On™ Glasses that allow nurses to immediately observe and interact with a patient’s vascular system. The glasses were designed with inspiration from Epson’s Android-based wearable display Moverio™ that creates an augmented visual experience for the wearer.
With Evena’s glasses, nurses and other health care practitioners will be able to navigate a patients veins and arteries, checking for damage and determining which vascular terminals are healthy. There’s also the benefit that the Eyes-On will prevent multiple needle sticks when inserting IV systems.
Additional benefits from the Eyes-On include video recording and internal storage, so health care workers will be able to document their interactions with patients while they’re interacting.
Tools like Evena’s Eyes-On minimize medical frustrations. With other implements like the Eyes-On, it’s likely that medical experiences for most people will be less painful, faster, and more accurate.
