The sole agenda of the healthcare industry is to heal and satisfy the patient.
The professionals would go to the highest cost just to heal the patient and provide the best treatment possible.
As Augmented Reality is advancing to benefit the medical industry, patients are at the utmost profit as they would get all the benefits of the applied technology.
Foremost of all, treatment will be speedy and accurate.
Thanks to Augmented Reality trends in healthcare, doctors can have data visualization and advanced diagnosis which ultimately results in treating the disease at a speedy rate.
Another time when AR can be utilized is when the patient and his family wants to understand the surgery or treatment suggested by the doctor.
It is not easy to grasp the medical implementation as explained by the doctor verbally or just by seeing an image or video.
AR can be used to simulate the surgery for the patient and his/her family to understand its impact effectively. This also becomes easy for the doctors as they can convey their thoughts visually to the patients.
AR can be used for the in-patients or their family for navigating inside a big hospital, so that find an easy route for the frequent accesses to the emergency room, canteen, washrooms, and pharma store within.
Interestingly, AR can also be used to relieve the patient’s pains! I swear!
Gamification helps reduce stress and depression.
Many chronic and acute pains can be cured by AR and wearable devices and there have been examples to stand by this.
Even Phantom pain caused by the absence of a limb can be relieved to a great extent by the use of AR.
SnowWorld is a game specially designed for burn patients to heal and feel their pain reducing.
AR is used as the Mirror Treatment to help train improve muscle strength of the missing limb.
Phantom Limb Unrelenting Pain: Augmented Reality Treatment (PLUPART) and SPARK: an AR Physical Therapy Concept are examples to depict the power of AR.
