Emerging Technologies for Health and Medicine

Book description

With the current advances in technology innovation, the field of medicine and healthcare is rapidly expanding and, as a result, many different areas of human health diagnostics, treatment and care are emerging. Wireless technology is getting faster and 5G mobile

technology allows the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) to greatly improve patient care and more effectively prevent illness from developing. This book provides an overview and review of the current and anticipated changes in medicine and healthcare due to new technologies and faster communication between users and devices.

This groundbreaking book presents state-of-the-art chapters on many subjects including:

  • A review of the implications of VR and AR healthcare applications
  • A review of current augmenting dental care
  • An overview of typical human-computer interaction (HCI) that can help inform the development of user interface designs and novel ways to evaluate human behavior to responses in virtual reality (VR) and other new technologies 
  • A review of telemedicine technologies
  • Building empathy in young children using augmented reality
  • AI technologies for mobile health of stroke monitoring & rehabilitation robotics control
  • Mobile doctor brain AI App
  • An artificial intelligence mobile cloud computing tool
  • Development of a robotic teaching aid for disabled children
  • Training system design of lower limb rehabilitation robot based on virtual reality
