Virtual Caregiving is set to enter both the healthcare industry and patient home settings. In January 2019, G60 Trauma (G60Trauma.org) will begin testing Addison Care, a virtual caregiving system to provide real time, 24/7 patient monitoring and care.
Addison Care provides new components to an interactive voice platform to demonstrate an interactive, augmented reality feature tied to visual sensing and connected home devices. Now, not only can you have a two-way conversation with an Electronic Caregiver, but the technology comes alive with an expertly designed augmented reality character named Addison, developed on AWS Sumerian.
In a clinical setting, Addison can greet a patient, recognized through facial recognition, conduct a verbal health examination, collect vitals, and direct a comprehensive gait and balance session to determine the probability of a ground level fall in a particular patient. In the residential environment, Addison provides medication reminders, verifies medication consumption, provides medical test reminders, monitors vitals, demonstrates rehabilitation exercises, assesses a patient’s progress, mood, fall risk and responses to escalating conditions and emergencies including contacting responders or caregivers in time of patient need.
A network of wireless visual sensors, local AI (artificial intelligence)-based processors, interactive tablets, Bluetooth biometric devices and emergency monitoring devices will be setup in a residence. Addison Care will be marketed and supported by a network of nationwide private duty home care providers that will serve as both live caregivers and Addison Care representatives.
