Within the inpatient ward of the hospital for patients with infectious diseases, zoning is used to divide the area into pathogen contaminated (red zone) and sanitary uncontaminated (green zone). Healthcare professionals should wear personal protective equipment when entering the red zone. The hospital was able to operate efficiently with a limited number of staff working in the red zone by using Vuzix smart glasses running the Zoom app to remotely transmit information vocally and visually, as well as receive instructions.
A use case supports the ability to double-check drugs and treatments used in the red zone by communicating with physicians and medical personnel located in the green zone. Another is to remotely support the operation and issues related to the use of advanced medical equipment. In this case, clinical engineers could participate in treatments remotely while using state-of-the-art medical equipment, such as mechanical ventilators and extracorporeal membrane oxygenators (ECMO). Additionally, the hospital believes the glasses can be used not only in their infectious department, but also in a wider variety of areas, including education and telemedicine.
“With their high-performance specifications, all-day portability and hands-free operation, Vuzix smart glasses are tailor-made for use in hospitals and for telemedicine in general,” said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. “We are seeing more doctors and hospitals around the world testing and adopting our smart glasses and we look forward to working more with customers like Osaka Saiseikai Izuo Hospital to make their daily operations safer and more productive. .
