Buying an Apple product may change your health for the better, as a result of recent innovations announced by Apple CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday.
The Apple Watch will soon be ready to use an app called AirStrip, which Dr. Cameron Powell, co-founder of AirStrip, referred to as a “game changer” in the healthcare department.
AirStrip app will make it possible for doctors to organise their schedules, to track their patients and get certain information about their patients’ diagnoses. Health workers will also be able to keep in touch with the doctors through the Apple Watch by sending them direct alerts concerning lab results or a patient’s vital signs.
Cameron Powell took to stage to point out that by using the AirStrip app together with the Sense4Baby monitoring system, doctors will be able to operate their Apple Watches in order to monitor pregnant women who are not hospitalized yet, but are still at home.
Sense4Baby was designed in order to monitor on one hand the baby’s heart rate, and on the other hand the mother’s heart rate and possible contractions. By receiving real-time information straight from the patient, doctors can now be more attentive and provide better care for women who are dealing with high-risk pregnancies.
Expecting mothers may also use the Sense4Baby app on Apple Watch themselves in order to listen to the baby’s heart rate and monitor their own contractions. By using the watch, they are able to contact their doctors and send them vital information regarding the pregnancy.
The other app that was revealed at the gathering was 3D4Medical’s Complete Anatomy Series. 3D4Medical will work on the iPad Pro tablet and according to Irene Walsh, head of design, the app will illustrate medically accurate human anatomy. This will allow patients to see precisely what is happening inside their bodies.
Walsh presented another new device, the Apple Pencil, which helps create custom images of patient’s injuries. For example doctors will be able to show patients how arthritis can damage the bones, or they will have the possibility illustrate other things such as fractured bones, Walsh says. The patient will in return be able to see these things on their iPads.
Medical students shall also benefit from the Complete Anatomy Series app, by being able to exercise their surgical skills using the Apple Pencil.
