Exelus has announced the availability of the Nomadeec platform on the HoloLens that will enable EMTs and paramedics to get real-time information of patient vitals and medical records. It will also enable them to directly teleconference with doctors to provide appropriate emergency care.

Exelus and HoloForge will showcase the evolution of Mixed Reality (MR) in emergency medical situations, at CES 2018. The software platform, Nomadeec, will allow medical professionals to access real-time vital information about a patient in a hands-free manner and also, allow teleconferencing with doctors for tendering appropriate emergency care.

Nomadeec will tie-in to existing diagnostic devices and services with the ability to connect up to 10 Bluetooth devices at any time. The MR platform can run on Android, iOS, and Windows devices with extensive customization options so as to cater to many emergency medical scenarios. The Nomadeec platform will enable emergency medical teams (EMTs) and paramedics to tender better pre-hospital care and also help in emergency medical responses in places which do not have extensive medical facilities.

This is not the first application of MR in telemedicine, though. Back in October, Silver Chain Group released the Enhanced Medical Mixed Reality (EMMR) app for the HoloLens that enabled clinicians to 'holoport' and directly interface with nursing staff providing at-home patient care. Nomadeec goes a step further by being able to leverage the same principles in a more response-sensitive scenario such as trauma or accident cases. The technology will be demonstrated using real-life examples during Exelus' CES 2018 presentation.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
