Understanding ultrasound with CAE Blue Phantom. Mobile educational platform for future doctors.
With the release of portable systems, ultrasound, which had once been limited to radiologists, was suddenly being used by a vast number of medical specialties from emergency medicine to anesthesiology. Today, Blue Phantom (acquired by CAE in 2012) is a major producer of the most realistic and durable anatomical task trainers available.
CAE has been collaborating with us on other projects, so the company addressed us with a request to develop a new educational platform for ultrasound procedures training.
To lay the virtual model on top of the physical (automatic physical model recognition)
To create an ability to train with your student partner and show the training steps results to an instructor
To develop an admin panel that manages organizations, users, training models, and training steps
To create a price durability calculator
The tech driver for this app is Augmented Reality (AR), which allows the virtual model to be laid on top of the physical. The model can then change size and switch between the skin and vessel layer.
MORE FEATURES IMPLEMENTED:
The ability to work with AR virtual models, rotate, change size and switch between the model layers (skin layer, vessels layer)
A way to recognize the real model and put the virtual model on top of it
A cross-platform mobile application for iOS and Android
An admin panel to manage users, organizations, and training process
We’ve transformed the Client’s idea of building an educational platform into a fully functional app from scratch. The prototype was ready in half a year, and the product was later presented at The International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) 2020 in USA. Our responsive software added value to the training process and allowed tutors to track the process remotely.
UI/UX design and interface for the IoT platform that helps tracking provision on hygiene supplies in hospitals.
Our client is a dispenser manufacturer that addresses hospitals’ needs with sensors that measure the dosage volume and the timestamp of hand disinfection. They send this data wirelessly through the IoT platform and run analysis programs to ensure compliance with the rules.
The former product’s interface was in production for 8 years and required significant improvements. The manufacturer turned to us to develop an interactive smart solution to reform and monitor hand hygiene and eventually reduce hospital-acquired infections.
To build a unique and customized web interface for IoT platform
To make the web interface user-friendly and adjustable for detailed statistical data checking
To create a cross-platform mobile app synchronized with a web app.
We reworked the entire front-end part of the application using the latest technologies to provide stability, a mature interface, and better user support.
Custom UI/UX and web interface
Configurable reports based on custom IoT parameters
Organizational and location structure supervision
Patient Days management system.
The development of the fundamental part of the product took about 18 months. Now we’re adjusting some UX features. In the meantime, the client engaged us with a related project – building a mobile applications that directly collect data from dispensers through NFC. It expects to facilitate and speed up the work of hygiene specialists in the hospitals.
HD live video conferencing and intraoral camera integration for a teledentistry solution.
Teledentristy is a broad category of solutions to provide and support dental care delivery, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, transfer of dental information, and education in the field. Our Client has been operating a teledentistry platform enhanced with costly video streaming. They’ve just developed a new intraoral camera and decided to reimagine the streaming service, making it top-quality but affordable for care providers.
The Client was seeking a way to embed a recently created hardware (intraoral camera) with the newest video-streaming tools making it available to use via desktop and mobile devices.
OUR GOALS WERE:
To provide uninterrupted, high-quality video conferencing and screen sharing
To support integration with the existing dental EHR system
To build a product on open-source frameworks
To allow multiple participants connecting the same conference
The stable cross-platform video streaming that allows dental surgery professionals’ collaboration is provided by:
WebRTC framework with routing via STUN/TURN servers
Bandwidth size and video quality management
Streaming support for cellular connections
Web and mobile apps.
Our streaming solution stands on the pillars of HIPAA compliancy, EHR integration, and accessibility both from web and mobile. It allows meeting patients or other doctors virtually using live recordable videos, and offers practical evaluations from any location. It easily incorporates into practice’s daily workflow to facilitate team communication, cover more patients, and store information for further reviews.
CAE Orion app improves healthcare training providing the connection between mobile devices and training models’ firmware.
CAE Healthcare is a division that develops medical simulation products, new equipment validation, medical device trials, educational content, and more. With their mannequin simulators, CAE offers targeted training to hospitals, medical schools, emergency response teams, military branches, nursing, and health programs.
Considering our expertise in the Healthcare sector, we developed Orion mobile apps for connectivity to a range of CAE training models.
OUR GOALS WERE:
To create connectivity between mobile devices and training model firmware
To allow live-tracking of manipulations on the model by a student while an instructor is checking their progress
To have customized graphs with models’ parameters changing in real-time.
BLE connectivity with the firmware of mannequins
No-loss data package exchange for live-tracking
Cross-platform mobile applications for iOS, Android, Windows
Power BI customized graphs with results statistics of training models’ manipulations.
Orion app is a responsive software solution that tracks education processes and showcases heart and lung disease treatment. It can be switched between practice and exam modes, empowering medical training and making coaching tangible.
