Groundbreaking Medical Google Glass Apps

Google Glass is a hands-free wearable device that resembles eyeglasses. Even though it does not feature any actual glass or lenses, it can take pictures and videos navigate, text, call and function like a smart phone. Despite the technological capabilities of this headset, it is not just for tech geeks – Google Glass and its apps are breaking new ground in healthcare technology. Offering hands-free access to patient records and vital statistics and the ability to transmit direct audio and video, Glass enhances diagnosis surgery and medical education. Here are some of the incredible apps for Google Glass that are revolutionizing medicine and health care delivery.

Breastfeeding Support Project

BreastfeedingAn example of how Google Glass enables remote education, the Breastfeeding Support Project app allows mothers to call a lactation consultant via a secure Google Hangout. The consultant can view breastfeeding problems through the mother’s Google Glass camera and provide advice on latching on, posture, technique and duration. Mothers can view instructions or get live help while standing, sitting or reclining, and use their hands to hold and position their infants. In initial trials of the Breastfeeding Support Project app, 100 percent of participants learned to breastfeed successfully with remote assistance.

    Even though I'm not in the healthcare field, this was so incredible to learn about. Technology often gets dismissed as something younger people do to waste their time, which can be true, but it also has the potential to solve complex and important issues.
