SmartNurse: Smart Society’s vision of future nursing

We have released the video above which demonstrates the practical applications of our research in emergency care situations. In this case study, nurses or student nurses wearing a Smart-Assistant (in this example Smart-Eye-Ware) are attempting to resuscitate a patient (doll). Besides offering information on demand in their HMD (e.g. instant feedback, regulations or quick-check information, hints), the Smart-Assistant also detects specific activities like performing chest compressions and provides feedback if the activity is not performed to required standards.

This research expands on work presented in the award winning papers: Smart-Watch Life Saver: Smart-Watch Interactive-Feedback System for Improving Bystander CPR and Recognizing Hospital Care Activities with a Pocket Worn Smartphone (award details here).
