A new telemedicine program for your Microsoft HoloLens is promising paramedics and EMTs a new tool for diagnosis and treatment for individuals in the specialty.
Developed through a partnership between medical software company Exelus and HoloLens developer HoloForge, Nomadeec allows the gesture-based controls of the HoloLens to give professionals access to customizable modules for individual tests, clinical tests, and individual profiles.
With Nomadeec, HoloLens can also work as a heads-up display for monitoring a patient’s vital signs, since the platform can connect to several kinds of health devices, like ECGs, thermometers, stethoscopes, and ultrasound devices, via Bluetooth. And when professionals require a second opinion from a medical professional, the Nomadeec program can connect them to those healthcare experts via video conference.
While Exelus and HoloForge emphasize Nomadeec’s HoloLens capacities, the platform is also compatible with smartphones, tablets, and smartglasses operating iOS, Android, or even Windows.
The solution appears at the nexus of two developing businesses. Pros put the value of the telemedicine sector at $24.9 billion in 2016 and estimate that it may increase to $113 billion by 2025. The augmented reality market is forecast to surpass $50 billion by 2024.

As striking as it’s that technology such as this exists today, the actual question is: Why is it sensible? One can envision an EMT fumbling with hand-gestures while a patient struggles to breathe when voice orders could provide true hands-free calculating. However, as both businesses mature, it is not tough to envision AR-enabled telemedicine more efficiently assisting treatment in a field where time is actually a life-or-death element.
The companies will sponsor live demonstrations of the software at this year’s CES (Venetian Booth #43852 on Level 2, Halls A-D) at the Sands Expo Conventions Center at Las Vegas.
