ThirdEye – Mixed Reality For Healthcare Delivery
MR is gaining traction in healthcare applications such as pre-procedural planning and simulations for learning and development. With the advancement in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), more organizations are turning towards mixed reality solutions as well. As a result, startups and emerging companies develop solutions to improve overall patient experience and efficient healthcare delivery.
The US-based startup ThirdEye provides X2 – mixed reality glasses for healthcare professionals. With the help of a simultaneous localization and mapping software, the startup helps deliver improved patient experience. X2 is powered with a 1750 mAh battery, noise-canceling microphones, and is compatible with android OS.
Nucleode – Mixed Reality For Surgery
Complicated procedures such as brain surgeries require a high level of precision and complete know-how about various potential scenarios. AR/VR simulations and training modules help doctors practice for patient-specific procedures. As a result, surgical errors are reduced and accuracy and efficiency are improved.
Italian startup Nucleode provides integration of mixed reality in surgeries. With the help of a patient-specific virtual model of the human brain, for example, the startup improves surgeries using this real-time 3D representation of a brain in the visual field of the surgeon. This helps surgeons navigate surgeries with precision and therefore betters outcomes.
Immertive – Mixed Reality For Diagnostic Imaging
Medical imaging is important for clinical analysis and medical intervention. AR and VR improve the scope for 3D representation of the human anatomy. Medical professionals gain a visual understanding of diseases, which allows for assistance through timely diagnostic responses. Startups work on translating 2D imaging into holograms and other 3D representations using mixed reality.
Indian startup Immertive develops MR applications for medical diagnostics and imaging. These applications use radiological data from MRIs and help reconstruct 3D holograms to use as a diagnostic tool. This aids physicians’ plans for the treatment with visually imposing the pathology on the hologram. Additionally, the startup develops MR applications for HoloLens and other MR products as well.
Mace Virtual Labs – Extended Reality (XR) For Medical Research
The collection of meta-data from medical research is important as it forms the basis for actionable insights. Biometrics collected from activities such as running combined with climatic conditions give deeper insights into the human body’s reactions to various scenarios. To accelerate this process, startups develop solutions that help researchers collect biometric data for analysis.
US-based startup Mace Virtual Labs offers a full-body immersive XR suit, Teslasuit. This suit is AR-powered and provides biometric data as well as haptic feedback for analytics. In this way, the suit helps collect medical research data accurately and acts as a full-motion caption device. Additionally, the suit also mimics climatic conditions for a holistic XR experience.
Voka.io – Mixed Reality For Congenital Heart Defects (CHD)
Nowadays, with advancements in medical imaging and technology, CHDs are treated swiftly and with precision. Made possible by Augmented and Virtual Reality, the 3D visualization of anatomy helps medical professionals both in the operating and emergency rooms. This is why startups develop mixed reality solutions for medical professionals who care for emergency patients.
Belarusian startup Voka.io develops MR solutions for cardiac procedures. These cataloged web-based applications are integrated with MR applications on HoloLens devices to provide aid for surgeons and serve as training material for practicing medical professionals. The startup also provides solutions for assisting in trauma cases such as fractures.
