The Institute for Forensic Medicine at Heidelberg University Hospital in Germany has launched a ground-breaking solution that revolutionizes the way examinations of people who are victims of violence are conducted in hospitals. The ARMED (Augmented Reality assisted, Forensic Medical Evidence collection and Documentation) project uses cutting-edge telemedicine technology to guide examining physicians in the collection and documentation of medical evidence. By wearing data glasses that transmit their findings to an expert in Heidelberg, the examining physicians are provided with real-time instructions on how to carry out the examination and document evidence. The project is specifically designed to provide comprehensive and expert care for people affected by violence.
With IMPACT-AI (Improving Medical Procedures And Care Through AI-powered forensic examination for people affected by violence) we aim to develop an AI-driven data analysis procedure and a "digital twin". This AI-driven process offers benefits such as cost-saving, more time for human interaction, and easy translation into other languages. Join us as we present the current status of our exiting work and provide deeper insights into the development process.
Discover how mixed reality (MR) is being used to enhance the training of medical first responders for challenging contexts. Medical first responders are confronted with an increasing number of mass-casualty incidents with many injured people that include include:
• Proper evaluation of the situation itself
• Checking and monitoring the vital status of a large number of victims
• Choosing the most appropriate strategy to further proceed with treatments are particular challenges
In the H2020 project MED1stMR, an innovative mixed reality (MR) training technology is developed that combines real-world patient simulation manikins with virtual environments to train medical first responders for these challenging situations. Through the integration of high-fidelity patient simulation manikins and the medical equipment into the MR experience, a much richer sensory experience is offered, allowing trainees to immerse into virtual scenarios and be able to feel and perceive vital signs and actual movements of the limbs, head, and face through tactile and visual interaction as they are actuated.
This brings virtual training closer to reality and enable both scenario training and medical training in the same MR training environment. Furthermore, it enables systematic manipulation of a large set of potential influence factors to optimize training effects.
The realization of a bio signal feedback loop with body sensors allows for monitoring trainees' stress and behavior during training and will make this data available for scenario control. The trainer can adapt training to the personal needs of trainees and provides a new way of interaction between the trainer and trainee.
This is sure to be a beneficial session for all those in healthcare fields so join us and be prepared to ask any questions you might have.
