HoloLens: Smart glasses to revitalize healthcare
The HoloLens smart glasses from Microsoft hold the potential to revolutionize healthcare
The opportunity for digitally enabled medical devices to solve challenges within Nordic healthcare is bigger than ever. New technology is an integral piece of the puzzle that makes healthcare more efficient and resilient.
This reality begs a rather unusual question: Can a pair of smart glasses change the view of healthcare? Microsoft's HoloLens smart glasses proves that answer is a resounding “yes.”
Meet HoloLens: mixed reality glasses from Microsoft
HoloLens is a mixed reality headset developed by Microsoft. It uses optical sensors, cameras and speakers to track the user's movements in real-time. It can help healthcare professionals visualize and interact with digital information naturally and intuitively, leading to better training, collaboration, decision-making and patient management.
The HoloLens 2 smart glasses — an upgraded version of HoloLens — offers advanced features that can facilitate the development of innovative medical tools and techniques, leading to enhanced patient care and improved outcomes. Already, healthcare professionals have seen benefits such as improved efficiency in ward rounds, reduced training time and decreased annual personal protective equipment (PPE) costs.
