An app for surgeons that looks and acts like an office assistant, but with enhanced functionality is currently available for Android devices.
The app, which was originally released in India last month, lets users interact with the app via voice and gesture.
The developers say the app will be available in the US and Canada soon.
“This is a great opportunity for healthcare providers and the Indian population to explore new ways of engaging with the world through innovative and immersive experiences,” the developers said in a statement.
“Our goal is to create experiences that will enhance and connect patients and healthcare professionals to one another in a positive and connected way.”
The app is currently free to download on Google Play, but users are also able to purchase a subscription, which includes access to the app, and the ability to purchase additional features.
In a post on the developer blog, Dr Kunal Bhadrakumar, a consultant in urology at the Tata Memorial Institute of Medical Sciences, said the app would allow surgeons to take control of the surgery, which is usually done by the team of an office staff.
“This can be an important component in the patient’s care.
For instance, a surgical team of a GP can be asked to do the operation on a patient.
This can be a huge task for an office attendant who is not trained or experienced in the surgery.
We can give surgeons an opportunity to work directly with the team that does the surgery and to interact with them.”
The app can also be used for teleconferences or in case of emergencies, to have a team member visit the patient during the operation.
“Dr Bhadrikumar said the developers wanted to enable surgeons to perform a wide variety of surgeries, such as the urethral flap removal, urethra implantation and penile prosthesis, without relying on office staff to perform the procedure.”
In general, we believe that an enhanced prosthesis that looks similar to a surgical instrument can be performed better by a team of patients and/or the office assistant,” he said.
The app’s developers said they wanted to create an experience that is not only visually appealing but also enables people to understand the complexities of surgery, and that this would be done in a safe, engaging and respectful way.”
A surgery of the penis, like a urethras, is the mainstay of our healthcare system, and many of the procedures performed are performed without adequate knowledge and experience in the field,” they said.”
We have done this by creating a tool that gives an enhanced experience for patients, allowing them to experience a surgical procedure in a more personalized and professional way.
“We have also been creating a video chat feature that allows a surgeon to record their own video, and it will be displayed on a user’s mobile phone.”
“The video chat will allow surgeons and the team to discuss the operation and to share their experience and knowledge.
The video will also be shared on the app to improve the overall experience.”
The developers said the device will be a one-stop shop for patients and their doctors.
A video of the app can be viewed on the company’s website, but its functionality will be fully customizable.
