Augmented Reality Based Assisted Healthcare for Enhancing Medical Rescue and Doctor-Patient Consultations with AR-Headset

DivyaJyothi MG, Rachappa Jopate, Rabia Abdulrahman Abdallah Albaushi, Hood Abdullah Nasser Nabhan Alabri


Technological progress in the healthcare sector has created new opportunities to enhance surgical precision and patient care. This study explores how augmented reality (AR) technology can help the medical industry close the gap between the digital and physical realms. AR has the potential to improve communication between doctors and patients, make complex medical information easier to understand, and help medical professionals diagnose and treat patients more successfully. It can reduce the need for printed pictures and diagrams by superimposing digital information onto a patient's body to provide surgeons a clearer understanding of the anatomy they are working on. The purpose of this research paper is to develop and deploy an assistive system that uses augmented reality (AR) technology to give medical professionals and rescue teams vital information. The solution smoothly combines digital data with the real-world perspective by integrating semi-transparent glasses into AR-Headsets. Enhancing patient-physician consultation and increasing the knowledge of complicated medical information is the main goal. The creation, application, and possible effects of this AR-based system in the healthcare sector are covered in this study.
